Notre Dame. DeShone Kizer. 13. player. 32. The Arizona Cardinals mainly re-signed their own guys with a couple of replacement signings here and there. They have a good roster but pick No. 13 overall because of the injuries on the O-line last year. But they’re back healthy with QB Carson Palmer and in win-now mode.
<p>But with Palmer subject to retire at any time, they Cardinals want a potential franchise QB on the roster..The Cardinals could probably stand to tighten up the secondary but this is a deep class.. They can get starting CBs and Ss from the second round all the way to the fourth.</p>
<p>So they grab Kizer, the QB in this class with the most upside, to mold into Palmer’s replacement in Round 1. Kizer is 6’5″, 233 pounds, athletic, has a big arm and comes from a pro style offense at Notre Dame. What I like most is his ability to throw with accuracy when he’s going to get hit.</p>
<p>There’s plenty of time to fix his flaws as the Cardinals don’t expect him to start right away. Palmer just can’t get hurt or they need to get a solid backup to make sure they don’t have to play Kizer. This move would be made for the future and with Kizer’s upside, I have to say it’s a good one.</p>. QB
