Cardinals know all their draft picks UPDATE

Posted by Darren Urban on March 24, 2015 – 8:57 pm

The NFL released the full draft order for next month’s draft, and here are the Cardinals’ eight selections. UPDATE: The league acknowledged some mistakes in a few comp picks, so the overall order has changed one of the Cardinals’ selections:

Round 1: 24th overall
Round 2: 55th
Round 3: 86th
Round 4: 123rd
Round 5: 159th
Round 6: 197th 198th
Round 7: 241st, 256th

The final selection is the final pick of the draft — Mr. Irrelevant — and as a compensatory pick cannot be traded. All the other choices are the Cards’ original picks and are in play if General Manager Steve Keim wants to flip them in a deal.

    I’d trade any of them for A.D. and Jameis and I’m good! I don’t care, 8 guys ain’t making our final roster so why the hell not?!

    If we were going into the season with whats on the roster now i am happy as can be. Seriously our biggest need is a number 2
    Running back and its not like guys on the roster have been horrible it was our number one guy who was playing hurt all season and took too many snaps and now his relief at least has some experience and some time to improve. Havng your third corner back who is athletic just not polished isnt the worst position to b e in. Basically in this draft they will be able to take best available or gamble on high upside but injured or other issue players and that is a good spot to be in.

    BEST AVAILABLE ATHLETE should be the focus on this draft or the Cardinals. Yes, we have needs at various positions, but B.A.A. is the smarter move at these positions in each round.

    #24 Round 1- DuPree, DE, Collins, CB, Erving, C, Peters, CB, Davis, DT, Gordon, RB

    #55 Round 2- Coleman, RB, Mauldin, OLB, Bennett, DT, Golden, OLB, Anthony, OLB, McKinney, ILB, Fisher, OT,

    as of now the roster is at 71 players ( 72 if you count D. Wash ). 8 draft picks get you to 80, then add 10 players after the draft to get to 90 players to go to camp with. Cards are right where they need to be, number wise.

    Last season, had 9 draft picks with 7 making the team, and Catanzero who was undrafted FA.
    in 2012 had 7 picks, all 7 made the team so better count on 7 or 8 of this year picks making the roster.

    In what year was Ryan Swope drafted? 2012???
    Did he make the team?

    Chuck 1 –
    Swope was the Cards first ,6th round pick in 2013 ( the second pick in the 6th was RB Andre Ellington )
    Swope and D C Jefferson a TE the 7th round pick were the two drafted players not making the team. Note, if I remember Jefferson made the practice squad, but was cut after some legal issue.

    Swope never made it out of camp. By July 27 , 2013 he retired due to concussion issues. He had some of the same at college, in Card camp he dove out for a pass that he hit the ground hard and was concussed.

    My thoughts on this year’s plans for cardinals…

    Focus on a RB, a game-changer one. Should it be Peterson or any other.
    Fitz production will drop year per year ya all know that, so will Palmer’s and other key player’s. This year might be the season which the Cardinals will have their biggest force as a team, enjoy it, don’t let it go away!

    2016 may be too late. Just saying

    Swope retired. Concussion issues.

    Easy E,

    People give you thumbs down , but you are right.

    I mean,
    in 2008 draft, we have Campbell left
    in 2009 draft, we have Johnson left.
    in 2010 draft, we have Washington left
    in 2011 draft, we have Peterson left
    in 2012 draft, we have Floyd, Bethel, and Massie left

    The old saying is it takes 3 or more years to judge a draft. For the cards, we have one long time player from each draft. That’s it.

    If you drafted a QB and got AP, you are way ahead of the game.

    even the last two drafts
    2013 – Cooper and Minter have showed next to nothing, TM has been injured, Okafor showed promise, and Ellington has talent, but everyone wants to add a RB early.
    2014- Bucannon was a decent LB but never took one snap at safety, who knows? Niklas was hurt, Martin sat the bench, Thomas is a horrible pick, Stinton got injured, Only John Brown shined in his role.

    If I could have AP and a Franchise QB, I would give them all up too.

    Apparently, with all of the Thumbs Down, my sarcasm re: Swope was not understood.
    My point was that not all of Keim’s draft picks have been good e.g. Minter, Watford, Cooper, Thomas, D.C. Jefferson, and, of course Swope. Others are TBD.
    As someone pointed out quite a few threads ago, sarcasm in writing is sometimes hard to discern.

    Chuck 1 – If Swope had not had concussion issues he might have been the “fast guy” that BA is always looking for. Yeah it was a shot in the dark, that is why he was a 6th round pick, so no big loss if he did not make the team.

    One thing to remember, 2013 was SK first draft where he was the GM, both he and BA had only been on the job four months, so I would think SKBA had their laundry list of positions they were looking to draft, for either starters or for depth.

    2013 draft was Cooper, Minter, Mathieu, Okafor, Watford, Taylor, Swope, Ellington, Jefferson.

    Cards needed some OL help,especially at guard, they took 2 OG as the OL starters were : Brown-Colledge-Sendline-Snyder-Massie

    Cards took two RB’s as the roster had :
    Mendenhall ( who was FA signed as a vet to tutor young RB’s ) – Ryan Williams -and Sherman as a FB ( who they traded to KC ).

    We all know the story with Mathieu and as long as he is healthy, he will be able to play any def. back position.
    Okafor and Minter were drafted as depth players, only due to the ILB that left did Minter get pushed up to the starting spot, ( which two seasons later he has not stepped up , Cards still looking for ILB help ). Same for Okafor, who did have a better second season, but still can improve his play.
    Swope if healthy might have been the #5 WR as the Cards had Fitz – Floyd – Roberts – Byrd as their top four receivers.

    This is the year that Cooper and Minter, ( if healthy ) should be the players SKBA thought they were and be able to make a difference. If after this season they did not step up, then I would consider this draft a bust…
