OLB, LARRY ENGLISH, NORTHERN ILLINOIS

Arizona Cardinals

Round 1, Pick #31 overall

GM Calibroncoboy

 

 

Details of the pick after the jump...

All Rush, all the time.

From the GM Calibroncoboy:  After losing Antonio Smith, 3 out of the Cardinals top 4 linebackers are over 30 years old. They need someone to help along side Dansby. Larry English gives them some versaltility as he can play as a 3-4 LB or as a 4-3 DE and can develop along the way. I think that they have no choice but to go defense here because they were 28th in the league in points allowed last year. English is a player who has shown he is durable as he was in 98% of the Huskie's plays last year. He has won many awards such as being the first defensive player to win the Smith Award since the first year of the award in 1982. He averaged over 6 tackles a game. He flashes a quick first step, good strength off the edge and blinding closing speed that abruptly hits the quarterback that has resulted in over 23 sacks over his career. I say the bottom line is that the Cardinals proved that they can get it done on offense and that they could use Larry English as an explosive, strong tackler, to possibly anchor the defense.

ON THE CLOCK

Pittsburgh Steelers are up next.  Last pick of the first round.  We'll need to keep the foot on the gas to make it #48, where the Broncos are picking again.  I'm thinking of a little different format going forward, and I have included a poll to get your opinion on it.  Vote on what you want to do!

The deadline for this pick is NOON MST, April 12th...  As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid.  To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
