The Arizona Cardinals got DeAndre Hopkins this offseason from trade. What can they do in the 2020 NFL Draft to carry their momentum?
The Arizona Cardinals have found their franchise quarterback in Kyler Murray a year ago in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Cardinals quarterback was actually the offensive rookie of the year, something that is really not being talked about often. How will the Cardinals approach the 2020 NFL Draft?
The Cardinals pulled off one of the best trades in NFL history when they traded running back David Johnson and a second-round pick for wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and a fourth-round pick swap with the Houston Texans. To this day I still think about, why did the Texans and Bill O’Brien even accept this trade.
The Cardinals now have a very solid wide receiver core in Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, and Christian Kirk. Murray has some very good options to throw to but I do not think they are don yet. There are rumors stirring around that the Arizona Cardinals are willing to trade back and they need a tight end at the same time.
With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trading for Rob Gronkowski, do the Cardinals trade for O.J. Howard? There are rumors stirring that the Cardinals are interested in Howard and the Bucs want to move up in the draft. Howard would be a perfect tight end for Murray, a big lengthy tight end that is a great end zone threat with Hopkins and Fitzgerald. Could this be a trade that happens right before the draft or happens when the Arizona Cardinals are on the clock?
