Cards trade down with Saints

Posted by Darren Urban on April 24, 2010 – 8:28 am

The Cardinals have moved down in the fourth round, dealing pick No. 123 to the Saints for pick No. 130 and also pick No. 301 201 in the sixth-round. That gives the Cards two sixth-round picks and will leave them with four players total today.

    Good move. Only move down 7 spots and pick up an extra 6th rounder.

    Ricky Sapp maybe? CB?

    Good move, now lets get Dorin Dickerson as a TE pick out of Pitt!!

    Darn, was hoping for Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. I’d imagine they anticipated him being gone by the Saints’ pick, so it’s okay. At least we picked up an extra pick. Darren, do you know if they had their eye on Akwasi Owusu-Ansah?

    Clarification, when I said the Saints’ pick, I meant the one inherited from them.

    And Dallas just picked Owusu-Ansah, perfect; I had really hoped this was the CB the Cards were targeting; oh well, maybe Sapp, Franks, or Cox?

    Doesn’t seem like that have any particular guy they really like in rounds 4 and 5 and are content to search for those gems and value picks in round 6 and 7 which I am all good with. I mean, our starting Tackle will be Herman Johnson or Brandon Keith, two guys picked up in the last rounds the previous couple years.

    Still a little confused with the 3rd RD WR/Returner pick though…

    We picked a guy coming off an ACL tear when guys like Ricky Sapp is still available without an ACL tear???

    Kind of a head scratcher here.

    okay just read up on him any idea how he is healing from the acl injury?

    Schofield was a two-year starter for the Badgers and had a breakout season in 2009. He has a good combination of size, strength and athleticism. He is a tough, hardnosed player with good instincts and technique. He uses his hands well to ward off blockers as well as locating the ball quickly to stay active to the pile. He has shown versatility, playing with his hand on the ground and as a stand-up outside linebacker. He shows good edge quickness, pass rush moves and counters but isn’t elite in this area. Schofield has good balance, lateral quickness and agility to be an effective zone coverage defender but again may be a liability in combination man schemes. He is a solid run-support defender with power on contact but isn’t fluid to work through trash in pursuit. Schofield is a good football player who brings versatility to a defensive unit, but with an ACL injury sustained at the Senior Bowl his draft status is uncertain.

    i absolutely LOOOOVE cardinals picks . SEEMS LIKE THEY FINALY, IN LAST 6-7 YEARS ,BEEN ABLE FIGURED IT OUT HOW TO DRAFT AND FULFILL THEIR NEEDS. OUTSTANDING JOB BY THE COACH WIZZ AND FRONT OFFICE!!!!

    Wow, we are so confident that we’ve addressed all of our deciencies that now we can afford to draft players who won’t be ready to play in 2010. These last two picks ring of “trying to be too cute” rather than keeping it simple and selecting solid players at positions of immediate need….

    4th pick: Schofield out for year?

    24 TFL, 14 sacks inlcuding bowl game senior year, wow production and speed. Small guy.

    Schofield? Ummmm. Ok, once again I question the thought process. Torn ligaments in his knee…9 month rehab time. If you need a body to hang out for 9 months I’ll come down for free. Passing up on better ranked defensive backs to get this guy makes me say one thing, do better homework.

    About a $1.00 worth this morning.

    Roberts fills a need getting Breston off of special teams and a 3th receiver, but Schofield seems like ab odd choice with better talent on the board.
