Donald Brown, RB, Connecticut

31. Arizona Cardinals
NFL TEAM
Reasons for drafting: Areas or need for the cards are: running back, DE/OLB, 3-4 DE, ILB, OL Dept. The cards were busy in the FA period adding Bryant Mcfadden a shut down corner who should see plenty of playing time, RB Jason Wright, TE Anthony Becht, and FB Dan Krieder. They also resigned re-signed several of their FA’s most notably Kurt Warner, Bert Berry, and Gabe Watson.
I spent some time over at ROTB (revengeofthebirds.com) it seemed like the consensus was RB and OLB were the biggest concerns, it’s a deep draft for DE/OLB and there should be some good value in rounds 2-5 for OLB’s
The running game was sub-par most of last year, and I don’t think all the blame can go on the RB’s. The run blocking just wasn’t that good, however, It will only be the 2nd year they’re together, another year working with Russ Grim shouldn’t hurt either. If they do add some help to the O line I think it will be later in the draft.
Donald Brown was listed as a 1st or 2nd round talent, he may be a bit of a reach here, but, he is such a complete back and his box numbers were really impressive. The forty was ok 4.46, but, the short shuttle 4.10 is very good and the 41" vert. jump was the best of all the RB’s at the combine. I think his short shuttle and long shuttle were second of all RB’s the combine. He is also a great character guy and would probably fit in with the Cardinals right away.
