Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB - Texas

Pick made by NYKings:

The Cardinals are a team that has needs at various different positions on the football field. They filled one hole at OLB by signing Joey Porter, but he's 33 and won't be able to stay around a football field forever. Kindle can start out playing beside Porter at the other OLB slot and he can throw in some variety but lining up as a DE before taking over as the number one OLB once Porter retires. Kindle's versatility is what makes him the correct choice at pick #26 for the Cardinals.

How will he impact the 2010 Cardinals?

As for this upcoming season, I see Kindle starting and making an immediate impact at both OLB and DE. The Cardinals, while losing [LB Karlos] Dansby and [S Antrel] Rolle, have some real talent on defense and adding this piece will really help them even further. Kindle has the ability to rush the passer and the Cardinals will need to improve on that (see postseason vs. Packers).

If the Cards are able to get back to the playoffs, I see Kindle making some noise. In the BCS Championship game he had a fantastic stat line with 8 total tackles (6 solo) including 2 sacks.

If Kindle is taken #26 by the Cardinals, he would be the 1st DE taken in the first round by the Cardinals since 1998, when they selected Andre Wadsworth #3 overall. He would also be the second DE taken in the 1st round from Texas over the past 2 seasons, as Brian Orakpo was taken #13 overall last year by the Redskins.
