So who might the Arizona Cardinals select with their first round pick (24th overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago, IL. on Apr. 30? They may have their eyes focused on a player from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).
Let's take an updated look at a prospect that may be available to the Red Birds when they're on the clock late in the first round. This scenario could certainly change as well if the Cards either trade up or trade down accordingly:
Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State
The Washington, DC native is 6-foot-4 and weighs 314 pounds. The Cardinals should have a very solid defense once again and Goldman would certainly be a welcome addition to defensive coordinator James Bettcher's impressive unit. He could start immediately.
College and professional scouts state that Goldman's strengths are: Solid with broad shoulders and well-proportioned frame. Plays the run like a full-grown man. Outstanding power in upper body. Plays with good hip flexion. Explodes out of stance and into defenders with force and leverage. Violent hands that jar offensive linemen and force them into defensive posture. Able to shed blockers with hands or with clubbing arms and spring into ball carrier. Can two-gap at the point of attack and plays square throughout, leveraging gap when offenses try to block him on an angle. Bull-rusher with ability to invert pocket, ringing up six sacks over last two seasons.Read more... Join the Conversation...
