The Arizona Cardinals selected safety Deone Bucannon with the 27th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Obviously it’s early, but let’s give this pick a C-. In the end, the Cardinals are a huge question mark. I think when you combine Bruce Arians with the team they currently have, anything can happen. This pick isn’t a sure thing, but it will be interesting to track.
WHY THIS PICK MIGHT WORK
Bucannon can contribute in the secondary right away. His game tape was fun to watch, and I think that’s what the Arizona brass was thinking when they made this selection.
WHY THIS PICK COULD BE A BUST
The Cardinals will wish they had drafted Jimmie Ward at the end of the day. Bucannon is a guy that I had as a third round grade, and Jimmie Ward is a first round pick. The future here is concerning.
SURPRISE OR EXPECTED?
Weigh in below with your thoughts on this one, fans. There was certainly a lot of speculation that the Cardinals could go off the board in a big way here, so this pick is an interesting one. One thing is for sure, this NFL Draft isn’t disappointing for fans one bit.
