If you go back about a month ago, and read my first articles on the Arizona Cardinals first draft pick, I said that they would draft Dan Williams.

OK. So I got a little lucky. 

Or rather the Cardinals got lucky. 

But for the Cardinals, they couldn't have planned it better themselves. 

Williams fills a huge need. 


With Bryan Robinson still unsigned and with Alan Branch and Gabe Watson both playing iffy so far in their careers, the Cardinals really did need a nose tackle. 

In what has been quite the draft (Tim Tebow was drafted right before the Cardinals pick), Williams falling to the Cardinals will be overlooked. 

But don't forget it.

The other thing that was amusing was how long Arizona took to select Williams. 

I was literally yelling at the TV, "What is taking so long! Pick Williams!!!"

And they did. 

No, it's not liking trading up to get Dez Bryant. Or Tim Tebow. The headlines tomorrow, even in Arizona probably, won't make a big deal about it. 

But it is a big deal. 

Now Cardinals fans should rejoice. If not for one night only.
