Round 1- AJ Green, WR Georgia

Round 2- Anthony Castonzo, OT Boston College

Trading Larry Fitzgerald is a heavy blow to Arizona's WR corp. But it makes the rest of the team better in the long run. It sends Larry Fitzgerald outside the divison and conference, so it won't be a threat to the team. AJ Green, Mohamed Massaquoi, Steve Breaston, Early Doucet, Andre Roberts, Greg Little, Chansi Stuckey give Ryan Mallett targets to throw to as well as time with the improved offensive line. Ryan Mallett is very tall, strong arm, accurate, and comes from a very competitive conference(SEC).
