Cards take WR Roberts in the third

Posted by Darren Urban on April 23, 2010 – 6:47 pm

The Cardinals went with a receiver in the third round, taking Andre Roberts of the Citadel. He’s 5-foot-11 but he ran a 4.46 40. He can return punts, averaging 15.5 yards a return this past season, which is a big deal since Steve Breaston will likely lose that role as he moves up to the No. 2 wideout. He also is a two-time team captain.

“I believe I am explosive, quick and elusive (on punt returns),” Roberts said, adding he has returned punts since his freshman year of high school. “I feel like I have gotten it down. … I do believe I have sure hands.”

He averaged 19 yards a return as a junior.

Roberts realizes it was the Senior Bowl and combine that jumped his stock. The Cards are looking for a No. 4 receiver after losing Anquan Boldin and Jerheme Urban this offseason.

    That punt return avg. is nice. Breaston has done a good job with punts because he has great hands, but his return avg has gone down each year. Be nice if this kid can take that role with Breaston as the No.2 WR and avg. at least 10yds

    Just curious on your view of this pick. Do you think Roberts will contribute right away or was he mainly taken just for his punt return skills? If thats the case dont you think we could have gotten a guy later in the draft or sign someone for that purpose?

    I’ll do a wrap-up blog later tonight. The pick fits a need. They have to get a punt returner, and they think this kid can be a good slot receiver.

    As for all the people who want Griffen, he doesn’t fit here I don’t think.

    Very interesting, I really didn’t see this coming this early. Didn’t we get bstone in the 5th? That either leaves bstone a big time steal or I don’t know what, still baffled.

    Darren –

    Lots of questions. Did you expect a receiver here? What about a TE like Dorin Dickerson or Jimmy Graham? Do you think the FO was planning on taking a receiver here, or was it the fact that other teams started going after them? Does this have more to do with punt returning or the 4th receiving slot? Danke bitte.

    I would of taken Bruce Cambell from Maryland. We have the “Hyphen” We need O-line. Whiz, Grimm, Graves are stupid as all hell for this pick. Our O-line has been terrible for years. WASTE. I’m gonna love watching our QB’s running for their lives and RB’s getting stuffed at the line of scrimmage. Gonna be a long year. Bring it on haters. Guess we really wanna give the division to the 49ers.

    with so many good defenesive prospects still on the board at the time I think this was a not so great move. Kinda smells like a panic move in that they probably wanted shipley or decker and panicked and took the next available WR.

    I like this pick and every pick, for that matter, made by the Cards. I imagine they’ll be going O-line and CB in rounds 4-7. Maybe we should have gone O-line earlier, but we’re continuing to get great value every time we pick.

    I want a pass rusher. Hopefully tomorrow we pull our heads out and draft Everson Griffen if available which I highly doubt, heck I’ll even take a chance on Wootten but I know we won’t draft him.

  22. By Skiptim on Apr 23, 2010 | Reply

    After reading up on him, I’m happy we got him. No one wanted Breaston probably when we got him, and that turned out to be a great pick. I would have liked (as would my twin) to have gotten Trindon Holliday as out punt returner later in the draft, but Andre Roberts can do that and play receiver.

    Here’s to declaring Andre Roberts as the best receiver in the NFL named Andre within a year, who’s with me?

    You guys who are saying this was a bad pick obviously did not watch the Senior Bowl. This kid is nasty. He works his arse off and he plays like he has something to prove. He’s spent the past four years at one of the toughest military schools in the country, so you know his work ethic is top notch. Trust me, this was a great pick.

    I am a little confused why we didn’t use this pick on a TE, or OL. Our depth at WR is one of our strengths. Hence our willingness to trade Boldin. So, I have to view this as a double edge sword. We didn’t pick a WR. We drafted the ability to let Breaston play the 2, AND drafted a good returner. And for the bonehead that thinks our OLINE sucks, pick up a state book. Most passing attempts, least sacks per…that makes them number ONE in that cat.

    CB, OL, OLB. Getting AO-A or Ricky Sapp in the 4th would be pretty sweet. Whiz and Graves are doing a GREAT job. And why would you want Bruce Campbell? You don’t think there’s a big reason for him falling so far?

    Never heard of him, but then again I’ve never watched Citadel Play. Since Whiz has taken over they’ve done a great job in the draft including 2010 thusfar; so I think Cardinal fans will be pleasantly surprised with this pick..

    Based on your conservations with the Cards’ coaches and front office staff, do you get the sense that they see CB and Offensive Tackle as needs the same way most fans and outside analysts seem to see those two positions as needs?

    Do you really feel good about Jeremy Bridges/Brandon Keith/Herman Johnson at RT and McFadden/Toler/Adams as 2nd & 3rd CB’s?

    As fans, I think we all expected CB and OT to be addressed before wide receiver depth/punt-kick return game.

    I’m mad (not at our picks) but at the uncertainty of a QB being drafted I really thought wed use it in the third round until we gave up the pick im glad we did though the thing is I bet my fater some cards tickets on getting a QB in the draft please tell me if that is indeed possible and do you think it will be someone such as Pike or Skelton?

    I’m not a fan of this pick at all. With a player like Akwasi Owusu-Ansah still available, they could have had a good punt returner and arguably a more talented player at a position of greater need. But given the recievers this team has put out in the last couple of years, I trust their decision on picking Roberts, just think it could have been addressed later. Hopefully some good players last until the 6th and 7th rounds.

    Looks to have some decent moves and above average speed in versus D1AA competition. I like him as a returner, but don’t expect him to contribute any more to the offense this season than Doucet did last year.

    maybe roberts is the next jerry rice and our guys will look like genuises for picking him. but right now, i don’t get it. we should be getting more linemen on both sides of the ball. we can always find guys like roberts and why we would waste a 3rd round pick on such a player is a mystery to me.

    Bad pick- essentially we traded Boldin for an unproven guy from the Citadel. I have no issue trading Boldin. But you know what kind of seasoned WR you could’ve got in trade for a 3rd? I mean what did the 49ers give up for Ginn in an effort to get a PR/KR? A 5th? I’d take Ginn over this guy and we gave up a 3rd. Stupid!!!!

    It seems to me the last person to come out of The Citadel and landed with the Cardinals was another virtual unknown who had a quite productive stay with the Cardinals organization. His name was Stump Mitchell, and I’ll bet he still has some Cardinal all-purpose rushing records. Give Roberts a chance,you might be suprised!

    For anyone who has doubts or just wants a detailed write up on Roberts go to the USAToday analysis. One of best punt returners in draft, top receiver hands, 4.4 speed and took direct snaps in wildcat. Averaged 6.36 catches per gam OVER 45 games. A prolific weapon:

  47. By Skiptim on Apr 23, 2010 | Reply

    Maybe a big part of taking him right there was the abundance of receivers being taken. Look at how many receivers were taken in the picks leading up to our last one there. They were flying off, and Andre Roberts was obviously someone they liked. He can return punts, and he should be a good 4th wide receiver. Maybe there are some CBs still around that the FO likes a lot. Maybe they trade up for a CB they like, we shall see. Either way, I am happy with the pick. (maybe Dorin Dickerson is still a possibility, assuming he can block well enough)

    Do you think the Cards will look to FA to address there lack of corner? one might argue that we did not put pressure on the Qb but lets be honest on Third Down some of our corners were picked on out there.

    They’re not going to let me post the top 120 board. I am a little surprised Whiz has been so open about where the two defenders were on it in the first place. I don’t know if they are going to take a QB, period. I doubt it will be the fourth round, but we’ll know by 8:30 tomorrow morning.

    I like this pick, this kid was very productive and a team leader. Looking at him he looks like an SEC WR and looks better than Early Doucet looked coming out of LSU.

    By the way, most critics did have WR as one of the Cards top three needs along with NT and ILB so the Cards of adressed all three. I will agree though that the Cards need to think about trading up if they see a kid that they really like at CB. That being said this is a deep Draft with lots of young talent to be had.

    The people that are pining over Griffen must not understand what a 3-4 defense is. Our OLBs are our pass rushers. We just signed Joey Porter, we still have Cody Brown & Will Davis (last year’s draft picks), we now have the draft pick Washington. These guys are gonna assist our interior of Dockett, Round 1 pick Williams & Campbell. There will be heat on the QB for sure this season. Griffen doesn’t fit in our scheme and you can’t spend your 1st 3 picks on the front 7. We absolutely needed another WR and this guy looks great. People should stop focusing on Mel Kiper’s “best available” and instead start believing in The Whiz. Just because you haven’t heard of him or he went to a small school doesn’t mean he won’t pan out. How many of you honestly had heard of DRC before we drafted him? Thanks Darren for all the updates. Go Cards!

    Don’t know where some of these fans are getting their fascination with picking up an OL or TE??? If they hadn’t noticed we lost some HUGE core guys this offseason and now have a strong need to fill holes on defense (LB in particular) and WR (we lost Urban and some guy name Boldin…). We are as deep at OL that we have been in since I can remember and TE is solid enough that u dont need to pick one up this early, if at all in the draft. Love the picks so far and hope we can go defense again in 4th and QB/WR in 6th and 7th. GO CARDS

    OK…for everybody who thinks we should have taken an OL in the 3rd round, actually look at the roster…and think about it…the Cardinals have young OL, Herman Johnson, and Brandon Keith. They also bought in Rex Hadnot to compete with the starters. Correct me if I’m wrong, Levi Brown, Duece Lutui, and Lyle Sendlein aren’t older vets. Then you look at the TEs, I believe Ben Patrick is a solid TE, can start for the Cardinals for years., who happens to also be young, with two vets behind him. Then you look at WR, Fitzgerald, Breaston, Doucet……then who??…Edward Gant?..Onrea Jones?..Darren Mougey?….The Cardinals at times use a 4 WR set, sometimes 5 WR set…and you all don’t think they should have drafted a WR??….give me a break…I don’t know about the rest of you, but I don’t want the #2 WR returning punts this year…this is a solid pick…he can be a special teams player…return punts, and earn playing time as a WR….reminds me of a 5th round pick during Whiz first year here….BREASTON….everybody bashed on that pick…he was “raw” come on people, Whiz/Graves know what they are doing…I LOVE all three picks they have made…I don’t have a problem with them trading up….wouldn’t you all rather have quality than quanity??….They went for Washington cause they felt he fit this team for what they are looking for, for the kind of defense they run….and for all of those that wanted a CB here….I feel WR was more of a pressing need…a CB is only so good when there is NO pressure on the QB…hense they drafted Dan Williams in round one to help Dockett/Campbell get to the QB…hense them signing Joey Porter…the secondary is solid…DRC, Toler (both very young solid CBs for years to come)…McFadden as a Nickel CB, Wilson, Rhodes….then in a dime package…bring in Ware…move Wilson up by the line…before you all completely flip out, or lash out…actually realize that Whiz/Graves know what they are doing…and are drafting players that they believe will fit in there system….that said…every player won’t be sucessful, the NFL Draft is always a gamble…but they got two of the top defenders on there board…then got a WR/PR/ST player in the 3rd round…during the draft coverage on the NFL Network….Jon Gruden said the Cardinals got a “steal” in Andre Roberts…just let them draft….going into the draft, I thought they need to get the best available players, I felt there biggest needs were: ILB, DT, OLB, WR, but always take the best player available…well after 3 picks, they addressed 3 of the 4 needs they had…don’t forget they have Cody Brown coming back this year…he fills the need of OLB….go figure…maybe Whiz/Graves actually know what they are doing…WOW….I mean, they barely missed the playoffs Whiz first year here, then won back to back division titles, should win it again this year….I believe Matt Lienart will do really well this year, and get a long term contract…then Arizona will be set for years with all this young talent…keep drafting the best players on your board that fit your system…GOOD JOB Whiz/Graves…QUALITY over QUANITY….I would rather trade up and get a good player that fits the system…then two players that may be decent that might not fit the system…

    How do I feel about this pick? Really, I’m not sure.At first I hated it. But truth be told, Doucet has had a history of injuries and the way he plays, could lead to more. I think Roberts has talent and is a nice addition.But I also love CB AOA, TE Dorin Dickerson, and OLB Ricky Sapp.

    So, was this our best choice? Would picks of AO-A and Ricky Sapp in the 3rd and 4th make more sense? And what about that QB? Here is what I think the front office sees.

    First and second round filled our obvious needs at NT and ILB. The 3rd round pick added depth where they felt we were lacking.

    OL= I think the team brought in vets for depth and are happy with who we have.= No OL to be picked.

    OLB= with the addition of Porter, I think they want to see the development of the young guys Brown and Davis= OLB picked in 7th

    TE= we have 4 TE’s on the roster and Ben Patrick can get the job done= No TE drafted.

    CB= Toler starts and Mcfadden is the nickle, not a huge need in their eyes. = Could see a CB in the 4th

    QB= they want a young guy to develop= expect a QB in round 4 or 6.

    Here is what I want the rest of the draft to go.
    4th round = CB AOA.
    6th round = QB Zac Robinson
    7th round = OLB Dexter Davis

    As for Cody Brown, not sure about that pick from last year. I know he got hurt early but he wasn’t doing much for me. Hopefully he can pan out but so far I think I have a better eye for pass rushers than the Cardinals do. I would have swapped #1s and traded both 3’s for Derrick Morgan.

    All you people cutting up Andre need to relax. Look at what he did in the Senior bowl against top end talent. He was one of the top 3 players in the game. ESPN, NFL Network, and SI all have ranked the Cards performance in the draft thus far as one of the best, only behind Seattle, Green Bay and maybe Cleveland. Their top three needs are filled and we still have three rounds to go. Andre will come in and grab 300-400 yards and split returns with Breston that’s all you can ask of him in year 1 considering his size, route running, and background he is going to need at least a year to become an every down receiver.

    Tomorrow Keim, Graves and Wiz will do exactly what they have done over the last four years; find talent and value in late round picks. Stephins Howling and Toler last year, Hightower in 08, and Breston and Patrick in 07. Other then Howling, all have started for the Cards at some point and all were picked in the 4th round or later.

    Tomorrow i expect we will see more sleepers and players who are flying under the radar, and i’am fine with that, because since 06 no team in the NFL has turned out more starters from the NFL Draft then the Arizona Cardinals. The cardinals are the best of the best when it comes to drafting in the last five years and if they find another kid from a DII school who they think can play i have no problem with drafting him, and you people should’nt either.

    Folks, this guy is a speed receiver with great hands. Speed separates coverage and without a 4.4 guy who can catch, the defense can smother Fitz, as we’ve seen. This guy takes pride in returning punts – one of the greatest plays in football. CB is deep this year so don’t panic. Good QB’s will be available at the 6th round (I like Kafka, but there’s others like Skelton) Finally you have Grimm’s Pick at #7 he’ll take a great OL prospect we can hide on the practice squad or my choice : Cody Grimm, an OLB with heart and a certain genetic line..

    Panic Move? Really? I always find it funny when people say that a draft pick is a panic move just because the team doesn’t take the pick they think they should. I’m excited about this pick because of the fact I’ve never heard of this guy. I remember everyone crying and freaking out about Hightower 2 years ago and he seemd to do pretty darn good. IN WHIZ & GRAVES I TRUST. Put a winner on the field boys!

    I also wanted to add that your comments are great and always appreciated. My favorite in this group was Dan’s Scouting Resume.

    You rock!

    Urban could easily have been replaced by an undrafted FA so this is really a 3rd round pick for a punt returner. I hope the confidence in our defense is justified.

    So much negativity. Did you forget we won back to back division titles? Under current management we have been kicking you know what and taking names. Keep doing it the right way Whiz! In the Whiz-ard of AZ we trust!

    Who the hell is John Skelton? The Cards sure didn’t take care of Q.B. with this pick. They needed someone to push Leinert to become something other than the big flop he has been……
