A big hat tip goes to Steve Muench of Scouts Inc. for suggesting the Cardinals might find value in drafting Connecticut's Cody Brown late in the second round. Arizona drafted Brown with the 63rd choice in the draft.
Here's what Muench said about Brown in our April 23 report on the Cardinals' options in helping their pass rush:
"Cody Brown is someone we think they can get late in the second round. He could convert to outside linebacker. He is not as talented as the Larry Englishes and the Connor Barwins, but he is a solid outside rusher prospect in a 3-4 scheme."
The Cardinals got what they wanted on the first day of the draft. They picked up a starting running back in Ohio State's Chris Wells, and they found a 3-4 pass-rushing prospect without reaching for need. The team could still use help at tight end and depth on the offensive line, areas the Cardinals will presumably address Sunday.
