1. Arizona Cardinals: Nick Bosa, Edge, Ohio State
Thank goodness the Arizona Cardinals were willing to trade up for Josh Rosen during last year’s draft so they don’t have to worry about using the top overall pick on a quarterback this time around, although some wonder if the team would prefer Kyler Murray instead.
Still, the chances of giving up on Rosen after just one season seems highly unlikely for a team like the Cardinals, and since it seems like Nick Bosa has been projected to be the top overall for over a year, it only seems fair to have the Ohio State standout go No. 1 to Arizona.
Just like his brother on the Los Angeles Chargers, Bosa has proven to be one of a kind defender, and chances are it’s only a matter of time before he’s viewed as one of the top players at this position in the NFL.
Despite the expectations surrounding the Cardinals to become a playoff contender once again in the NFC last season, this clearly wasn’t the case since they hold the first overall pick.
Bosa’s presence alone isn’t going to solve all the issues Arizona has been dealing with, but at least with him joining the defense along with Rosen hopefully learning from his rookie experience, the Cardinals will finally be moving in the right direction again.
