Cardinals stick to value on draft board over positional needs

MI football center Mason Cole was drafted 97th overall in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft by the Arizona Cardinals on Friday night.

"I like Cole, he's got an interesting story in terms of where he's played", ESPN analyst Todd McShay said on the NFL Draft broadcast.

Cole (6-foot-4, 307 pounds), who played at both left tackle and center for the Wolverines, became the first true freshman offensive lineman in UM history to start a season opener.




Campbell had 47 tackles during the 2017 season.

The first two picks of this class were enough to earn this grade. Many considered him the best overall quarterback in the draft. His preference is to play at center, but he is open to a move to guard. To me, he fits better on the inside. He told reporters, "There were nine mistakes made ahead of me". Cole doesn't really translate to a tackle at the next level, but can play either guard or center on an National Football League line.

The Oakland Raiders were happy to take just a third and fifth round pick from this year's draft, plus the number 15, in return for the number 10. "I think James Daniels from Iowa, Billy Price from Ohio State and Frank Ragnow from Arkansas are your top 3, and they'll all go early". The Cardinals not only were able to plug some holes but also plug them with some very good players from the 2018 NFL Draft.
