Сообщение Arizona Cardinals fans are abuzz with news that J
osh Rosen has been named the starting quarterback (officially) after a week 3 loss to the Chicago Bears. It was bound to happen at some point this season and with the team off to an 0-3 start and veteran Sam Bradford not showing much promise Black Josh Rosen Jersey , now was as good of a time as any. But the problems don’t figure to be automatically corrected with Rosen now in the starting lineup. Changes on both sides of the ball could still be made to help improve this team. For example, this past Sunday, Deone Bucannon and Haason Reddick — both former first round picks of the Cardinals — saw very little action with defensive snaps. Reddick had a mere 4 snaps, while Bucannon saw a whole one snap on defense. Honestly, it isn’t that surprising. We all saw the liability Bucannon was as a linebacker in this team’s new defense under Steve Wilks in week one against the Washington Redskins. But I don’t want to count Bucannon as a lost cause just yet. He is a talented and athletic player that has shown he belongs on an NFL field in the past. He’s a sure tackler that can make plays in space or in the hole. So, since we are trying new things and making adjustments to try and win ball games, why not try this crazy idea: put Bucannon back where he belongs — as a safety. Buc was always a misfit as a linebacker. The guy practically invented a whole new position as a “$ backer” when a rash of injuries necessitated his playing in the box full time. Bruce Arians and Todd Bowles were successful in masking his lack of size and strength and making him into a linebacker that was as quick as any out there going from sideline to sideline. He was a tackling machine, so to speak. But after some injuries and Bucannon almost being forced to put on more weight, he just doesn’t look like the same player anymore. Who knows the real reason we have seen this decline from him, but when you go from a starter playing essentially every snap to being one snap shy of a DNP on defense, it goes beyond just the defensive scheme. Shedding some of the unnecessary muscle and weight that Bucannon has put on the past couple of years would be a great start. Let him lean out again, allowing him to move faster and play laterally like he once did. He may get eaten alive by an offensive lineman from time to time, but it’s not like all the weight he has added has really changed that. The next move I would make would be to change him back to his original position. I was never a fan of making him a linebacker full time to begin with. Tre Boston, after being hailed as a steal when the Cardinals signed him this off-season, hasn’t done much to impress me outside of a diving interception against the Bears. Bucannon may present an immediate upgrade over Boston and form a dangerous safety trio between him Josh Rosen Jersey 2019 , Antoine Bethea and rising star Budda Baker. With a thinner frame and less time around the line of scrimmage, I truly believe we could see a revitalized Bucannon. And at this point, what do you really have to lose? This is a rebuilding season for the whole team as it is and if it doesn’t work out, he is a free agent at the end of the year and you let him walk. What do you think, fans? There has to be a way to salvage what was once a highly productive first round pick, right? Let’s be honest, the Arizona Cardinals have some holes on their roster to fill.Like, a lot of holes.With players like Robert Nkemdiche, Haason Reddick, DJ Humphries and Brandon Williams still major question marks on the roster, Arizona’s drafting has struggled to make an impact.By trading back, they could add more picks to infuse the roster with more talent, right?Perhaps not.NOTE: Obviously, the Cardinals’ draft position hasn’t finalized yet.While them winning 7 straight to go 9-7 is, well Deionte Thompson Arizona Cardinals Jersey , not going to happen at this current point they are picking 4th overall, so that will be where I will slot them for this article.Anyway, here’s four reasons why Arizona should stay put at the top of the draft, yes, even at #1 overall.#1. Usually trading back takes you out of contention for elite, impact playersThere’s occasionally a time or two where a team can leverage another team for more picks, either due to a team moving up in the draft to jump someone or convincing a team of that very thing.The Browns traded away a 4th, 5th and 7th to move up for Trent Richardson at #3 and the Bears gave up 2 thirds and 4th to move up 1 spot to take Mitchell Trubisky (presumably ahead of a team like the Jaguars) and therefore didn’t miss out on a top 5 pick.Is it possible that could happen?Sure.But it’s unlikely.Normally, it’s a big jump as we saw over the past few years...see Kansas City, the Saints moving up for Marcus Davenport or the Texans for Deshaun Watson.Meaning the Arizona Cardinals would likely have to move way way down.And that becomes an issue when you realize...#2. Too many players in the top 5ish picks fit needs the Arizona Cardinals haveOutside of the quarterback (which is tentative as Justin Herbert is considered the top prospect in the draft but might not even declare) you could argue the Arizona Cardinals have needs at just about every position but running back, a shutdown cornerback (well, for now, anyway) and punter.Okay, I’ll take kicker off the list too.But the cream of the crop of this year’s draft class seems to be on a different level from years past.Some of those players are here on Mel Kiper’s big board to pull from:Nick Bosa, a potentially better edge-rusher than his brother JoeyEd Oliver Cheap Deionte Thompson Jersey , one of the most dominant players in college football from 18 years oldQuinnen Williams, a beast of a player who’s getting more Aaron Donald comparisons than Oliver Some really like the tackle in Jonah Williams as well, and Arizona’s offensive line need is big-timeThere’s top notch corners in Greedy Williams and Deandre Baker, and even other edge rushers and defensive linemen if they win a few more games.Many GM’s and teams like to trade down every year, but mostly because:A. They either are looking to gain value from a haulB. The talent isn’t that greatThis year?There aren’t a plethora of top quarterbacks like there were last year, and there’s enough talent in the top 5-10 picks that unless a team picking 14th is moving way way up, it’ll be hard to find value. Now a question—what if they’re picking #1 overall?Well what did the Cleveland Browns do?They drafted this guy rather than trade down for more picks because they saw the talent was too good to pass up:And now the Browns have one of the best defenses in the NFL with Garrett looking like a freak.Imagine if Garrett was now a member of the San Francisco 49ers how different that team would look, and how much they’d be laughing at the Browns today.Keim should stay put, even at #1, because the talent IS that good this year.3. $70 million in free agency can fill holes better than an extra 2-3 draft picks can down the lineThis is pretty self-explanatory.The Cardinals need an overhaul and they want to turn it around and win quickly.That’s not done with a ton of rookie players who need time to adjust to the league.With Free Agency taking place a few months before the draft, Arizona with their largest amount of cap space they’ve had in a very long time will be able to cut down on the majority of the needs they have on the roster, meaning they can draft more for talent than for having to scramble to rebuild a franchise through trading down repeatedly for more picks.4. The draft is a crapshoot—Even good GM’s gamble and miss oftenThe NFL draft is like playing Texas Hold ‘Em in a way.There’s a strategy, a gamble and a risk taken that can turn out in your favor or not based on how you’re holding your hand and what cards are turned over.The last few years, Steve Keim’s gambled away a few chips on players that haven’t made an impact.But he’s not the only one.The Seattle Seahawks built repeatedly through the draft an elite defense and found Russell Wilson and traded a pick for Marshawn Lynch.Then they traded away a stud center for Jimmy Graham and drafted busts repeatedly for a few years in a row.Bill Belichick spent a 1st round pick on a player who’s now a rotational defensive lineman in Dominique Easley with the Rams, and there’s no expectation of perfection amongst even the elite talent selectors in the NFL.The Browns have spent years trying to find an elite wide receiver and that’s after trading down from Julio Jones...who’s maybe been one of Deionte Thompson Arizona Cardinals Jersey , if not the best, in the NFL the last decade.Arizona Cardinals fans who were furious when the team traded back from taking Terrell Suggs instead for Calvin Pace and Bryant Johnson.This is the issue with trading down, however, more than it just giving you more of a chance to miss...you get a LOT more chances to miss.See below what a trade back did for the Cleveland Browns:The Browns could have had Jalen Ramsey.They instead got a TON of picks and ended up at the end with an elite player in....Denzel Ward after an 0-16 season.And that’s just how the NFL draft works.You don’t trade back and suddenly add 3 pro bowl players you “find” in the draft.Even successful NFL GM’s or a Bill Belichick will draft players who end up as massive busts just because that’s how the draft works.Guys get hurt or don’t develop often and the scouting process works to find guys who are the most likely to succeed.There’s very very little talent to be found otherwise in that trade.And it’s not just the Browns.Many even said that the Titans also benefitted from the Goff trade, as evidenced below in the quote from this article:While Davis seems to be coming on and Conklin is a solid right tackle, the issue isn’t the players they took working out...it’s the fact that whatever picks they got in return, none of them added up to replacing or surpassing the value of a Joey Bosa, a Ezekiel Elliot, or a Jalen Ramsey.All three were instant impact Pro-Bowl caliber players and it was easy to see.The other players for the Titans might have helped flesh out their team but how many of them are true game-changers?What you make up for in picks, you lose in talent & a sure thing.Think of a bird in the hand like Terrell Suggs being worth two in the bush like Calvin Pace and Bryant Johnson.And the odds of Arizona finding a player as impactful as the ones that will be at the top of the draft a bit later?Not very high.5. Steve Keim has to land the plane after far too many misses in the first roundImagine it’s the day of the NFL Draft.-Fans are sitting, waiting and excited to see who Arizona takes.-The news comes in.It’s a trade down...to a playoff team that moves up for a pass rusher or defensive lineman.-Keim moves back and takes a 1st round offensive lineman or a wide receiver and picks up a 1st round pick for 2020.-Welp.If that lineman turns out and succeeds in Arizona, he’ll be the first under Keim, and fans will have to wait until 2020 to see the pick and, unfortunately, don’t think it’ll be very high given that it’s a playoff team.Meanwhile...The playoff team’s rookie instantly impacts the team and pushes them further forward as a rookie 2019 Deionte Thompson Jersey , while the Cardinals fans are pointing at Keim and what could have been had.In short...Steve Keim can NOT afford another miss like this.Taking a sure thing for a currently 2-7 team that needs an influx in talent is a much better option than adding less sure items that might not stack up and gives even more reason to the haters calling for Keim’s head.It’s as simple as looking at it being a bad idea to trade a more known quantity for a greater number of unknown quantities.And it can’t be Steve Keim’s strategy to trust himself and try to pick the good players.Because look where that’s gotten him—on the hot seat to national media and a 2-7 team that’s already having fans assign “bust” labels to players and are looking at him as being part of the problem, not the solution, for the Cardinals.Summary:In essence, the NFL draft is a gamble.It’s a risk.It’s betting on players and the surest hand is the one that’s found with a top 5 pick rather than a move-back.I know I’d rather gamble on an Ed Oliver, a Jonah or Quinnen or even a Greedy Williams than I would adding later picks that are less talented, and less of a sure thing.Trading back is more of a risk.And it’s a risk that their current GM in Steve Keim, or anyone in the organization this year, should not take.Don’t trade down, Arizona Cardinals.You can follow @blakemurphy7 on Twitter.
