Kent Somers covers the Arizona Cardinals for The Arizona Republic ( On the show, Kent discusses the likely scenarios for the Cardinals in the first round, including picking up a QB or CB or possibly trading down. Kent talks about the current WR corps and how Arizona plans on addressing the position in a post-Larry Fitzgerald world. He also talks about what kind of a running back will fit Arizona’s needs best as a backup to David Johnson. Finally, Kent mentions he doesn’t expect the Cardinals to wait beyond the third round to pick up a QB in the 2017 NFL Draft.


Anthony and Nick break down Kent’s comments,and analyze some different players who might be a good fit at each of the WR, QB, and RB positions. At WR they talk about veterans like Torrey Smith and Ted Ginn while eyeing prospects such as Carlos Henderson as an Arians-type receiver. They discuss late-round options to back up Johnson at running back, including Marlon Mack and Joe Williams. Next, since Arizona plans on drafting a QB early, they break down the top four QBs on their board. Finally, they briefly break down Arizona’s defensive situation and how that might impact the offense in 2017.
