2014 NFL Draft Grade: Arizona Cardinals Select Troy Niklas


The Arizona Cardinals selected Troy Niklas with the 52nd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

PICK GRADE

This pick gets an A. I really like Niklas’ overall ability and think the Cardinals can benefit big time here.

QUICK TAKE

The Cardinals made a big move here, and I think they’ll be thrilled with this 10 years down the road.

OUTLOOK FOR 2014

Bruce Arians’ team has a lot to be excited about for the 2014 season. It appears the pieces are coming together as the team had hoped, and this draft has been a nice one thus far. Everyone will have different opinions on where the Cardinals will finish in 2014, but there’s definitely hope in Arizona. When you have electric offensive weapons like Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Ellington, it’s hard to count the Cardinals out of any game. The division is a tough one and has gotten better – do the Cardinals have a shot to shine brighter than anyone else?
