I don’t...

Ride the Tigers: Cardinals’ 2020 Draft

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ The NCAA National Champion LSU Tigers have bestowed the 2020 NFL Draft with a surplus of outstanding talent on both sides of the football. There are so many outstanding Tigers in this draft, that, for the sake of my own amusement, and hopefully yours, I am going to try to figure out a way for the Cardinals to acquire a pride of Tigers. To accomplish the goal, the Cardinals need to make two trades: The Arizona Cardinals trade the #8 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Miami Dolphins for the #18 and #27 picks.

2020 NFL Draft prospect profile: Lamical Perine, RB, Florida

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports The the Gators’ running back be Saquon Barkley’s backup in 2020? The New York Giants do not need to draft a running back highly in the 2020 NFL Draft. The presence of Saquon Barkley means that the Giants will have one of the best running backs in the NFL for at least the next two to three years. However, that doesn’t mean that running backs should be completely ignored. Barkley missed games due to injury and every player can benefit from being rested every once in a while.

This was also true of the 2010-2019 Dallas Cowboys as well. People have been championing the cause for Dallas to invest legitimate resources into the safety position for years. While they have declined to do so in the draft, there was thought that maybe they would marry the player they flirted with forever in Earl Thomas during last year’s free agency, but that didn’t materialize and here we are,...
