Arizona Cardinals select Michael Floyd, Grade B

Very interesting pick by the Arizona Cardinals. In terms of value, Michael Floyd makes sense. He’s a solid mid-1st-round prospect and gives Kevin Kolb another legitimate target.

However, I’m not crazy about how he fits in Arizona. He’s not a guy who can stretch the field and Larry Fitzgerald doesn’t really do that at this stage in his career either. There is no doubt in my mind he’ll make an impact, so I still give it a solid B, but I probably would have addressed the offensive line or added a pass rusher with this selection. It sort of feels like a luxury pick for a team that can’t really afford one.
