The Arizona Cardinals selected Trey McBride out of Tennessee State University in the 6th round. The NFL draft was just a few hours ago, and already you have to know how this kid is doing as a pro-fessional football player. Here are his numbers from today’s game:
The Arizona Cardinals may have struggled in the last weeks of the 2021 NFL season, particularly with JJ Watt and DeAndre Hopkins out with injury. Despite some offseason turmoil involving social media, Kyler Murray remains in the fold, ensuring that this club will be competitive in a volatile NFC West — and even better if it can strike on a few choices in the 2022 NFL draft.
Defense should be the focus of the three-day tournament, especially with the offseason losses of Chandler Jones and Jordan Hicks. Arizona went into the draft in desperate need of a top-tier edge rusher, and the defensive line and secondary should remain high priorities throughout the process.
With Christian Kirk headed to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Cardinals may need wide receiver depth, but it’s significantly less of a necessity now that they’ve traded Marquise Brown for some of their draft capital.

What is Trey McBride incapable of? He’s a solid blocker at the line of scrimmage and down the field, has the speed and awareness to locate space in the seams, and excels at hauling in contested receptions. With Marquise Brown joining the Arizona offense, adding another pass-catcher may not have been a top priority, but the skill may easily outweigh the lack of willingness to address the team’s defensive issues in the second round.
