Cardinals take Haason Reddick with the 13th pick

The Cardinals didn’t get the quarterback they wanted.

But they found a guy with the 13th pick who could make an immediate impact on their defense.

The Cardinals watched three passers go before them, and selected Temple linebacker Haason Reddick.

Reddick was a fast-riser late in the draft process, and his ability as a pass-rusher will help a defense which needed reinforcements after losing five starters in free agency, including defensive end Calais Campbell, safety Tony Jefferson and linebacker Kevin Minter.

    He was the pick before the draft started. All those QB being drafted didn’t change the Cards’ pick, it just ensured Reddick drop to the Cards.

    Pass rushers are always good-to-haves

    The Cardinals never wanted a QB in the first round and their smokescreen cost the Texans a lot of picks, while simultaneously pushing down several of the defensive picks they coveted.

    The Cards had Reddick in their top 5 and assumed he’d be gone, but with so many teams overdrafting QB’s, they got the guy they never thought would be there in their wildest dreams.

    I’d expect the Cards to look to trade up for Mixer in the 2nd, or wait till Davis Webb falls to them
