With three picks on Day 2, the Arizona Cardinals filled needs while drafting the best players available to them—until their final pick, that is. Wide receiver John Brown may turn out to be a great pick, but many were confused by Arizona pulling the trigger on him at 91.
Let’s be real, head coach Bruce Arians has a specific type of receiver he likes to use as his downfield threat. Typically, he's shorter than average, weighs less than 190 pounds and is lightning quick.
That is Brown to the T.
He stands just 5’10” tall, he weighs just 170 pounds and he ran a 4.34 40-yard dash at the combine. He also produced as a true deep threat should at Pittsburg State—he hauled in 61 receptions for 1,198 yards (19.6 yards per catch) and 14 touchdowns in 2013.
With three picks on Day 3 (for now) and still good players to be had, Saturday should be eventful and entertaining. Let’s see what options the Cardinals have to round out the 2014 draft.
