Cardinals were long rumored to covet one of these QBs and predictably made a play to move up and get a potential franchise signal caller. The surprise was how affordably they did it and which QB it was. Rosen was the most pro ready and arguably the most gifted passer but he fell due to concerns about durability. A 3rd and a 5th is pocket change for a QB and if Rosen proves sturdy, the Cards came away with the steal of the draft.

Kirk was one of the most impressive prospects in interviews. He's smart, mature and a worker. On the field he shows vice hands and long speed but he's a linear mover and has more build up speed than explosiveness. That said he a solid get in the 2nd and fills a big need. Center Cole was one of my favorite prospects this year. I think he was widely underrated and could have a similar impact as Elflein on the Vikings last year. Edmunds was a favorite of some in draft circles and fits as an all purpose change of pace guy. That said, I think he went a little early. I felt Campbell was also an underrated guy. He's got the size and ball skills to make an impact at CB or S. Cunningham is a decent flier in the 7th. Cards got more explosive on offense out of this draft, I think found a pillar on the offensive interior and possible found a future franchise QB...not bad.

With just one pick in the first two days of the draft, Seattle made an expected an needed trade down to acquire more picks. Great so far...but then they selected Rashaad Penny with their first pick in the draft. Even if you overlook the poor positional value, and that RB wasn't a glaring need for them...Penny was still a significant reach in a particularly deep RB class. He's certainly a homerun threat, and he shows vision and toughness, but he's far from a physical runner and isn't a great pass protector or receiver. Green was a more predictable selection. He's got upside and fits the scheme well. Dissly fits into what the Seahawks want to return to..a physically dominant running game. Griffin was an expected and great pick up. The key with him will be where they line him up, but he's an all purpose defender with speed that'll will leave everything on the field.

Flowers was a solid mid round pick up and helps reload the legion. Dickson was regarded as the draft's best punter. Jones is a potentially a great get as he fell due to injury concerns but was a 2nd-3rd round talent. Even healthy I wasn't entirely impressed but he's a solid developmental talent at LT or RT. I was fairly high on Poona Ford and like his chances to stick as an UDFA.

After going primarily defense with his first draft, GM John Lynch took a stab at the offense first in his second and looked to bolster protection for his budding franchise QB. The problem is, this wasn't a great draft for OT's. McGlinchey was one of the best of the bunch but he's had problems holding up as a pass and run blocker at either side at Notre Dame. He looks and sounds the part and was generally effective but has also flashed some awful tape. Given Garoppolo's rapid fire release and Shanahan's efficient zone scheme, McGlinchey could work but I'd wager this one will go down as a substantial reach. Pettis is a nice fit for the scheme with his precise route running and yac ability.

Despite the need for more options offensively, they went defense with the remainder of the draft. Warner's a fluid chase backer but lacks physicality and is more of a safety/LB tweener. Safeties Moore and Harris are solid mid rounders and should contribute. CB Reed is a competitor despite his size and should earn a role. Street was a workout warrior and will need a redshirt season after sustaining an injury pre draft. Late rounders DT Taylor and WR James have the athletic ability to be pros and are solid talents for the coaching staff.

After blockbuster offseason trades the Rams went into the draft desperatley thin at the OL and LB positions for the new 34 defense. They found bodies to fill the positions and it's just a matter of how soon they'll develop. OG Notebloom and C Allen are hardnosed people movers that have the physicality to step in and contribute early. 6th rounder Demby is more raw but shares the same physical skill set. Franklin-Myers and Okoronkwo will attempt to give an edge presense but neither are blue chip talents. The Rams would be fortunate if either of these two or their later round guys contribute significantly. RB Kelly is a talent and should earn a reserve role if his head's on straight. I was a big fan of UDFA LB Scales and had him higher than their 5th rounder Kiser. At least one of those two should stick.
