Cardinals Cover 2 - Big Red Draft Class Filled With Athleticism
Ep. 421 - From Marco Wilson to James Wiggins plus Zaven Collins and Rondale Moore, the Cardinals drafted themselves some very athletic talent. Of course athleticism doesn’t always equal success. While acknowledging that, Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss the upside of a player like Wilson as well as fellow cornerback Tay Gowan, who Pro Football Focus called one of their best value picks. Also, it’s time to review; just how well did Jurecki’s big board—his top-50 draft prospects—match up with how the rest of the league thought of this year’s draft class?

Cardinals Underground - After The Draft
Any easy subject this week for Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Kyle Odegard. Sure, Paul first asks about longsnappers, but quickly enough the guys delve into the athleticism of the Cardinals’ draft class, choosing Zaven Collins in the first round and the kind of impact he can make compared to other positions, Rondale Moore as the latest second-round wide receiver and how his skillset can change the offense, how rookies can make an impact, the secondary help on Day 3, the curious case of Marco Wilson, Tay Gowan as steal, Budda Baker’s new number and, of course, a dollop of Fitz.

Cardinals Cover 2 - A Draft Heavy On Defense
Ep. 420 - Somewhere, defensive coordinator Vance Joseph is smiling. Five of the team’s seven draft picks were defensive players, so more talent for Joseph to work with. We know linebacker Zaven Collins is expected to play right away. There may be an opportunity for cornerbacks Marco Wilson and Tay Gowan to see the field early as well given the need for depth at that position. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss each of the seven new faces to the roster. Also, the guys explain why Budda Baker is changing his uniform number once again.

Cardinals Cover 2 - Adding (Rondale) Moore To The Offense
Ep. 419 - With their one and only pick on the second day of the draft, the Cardinals selected a do-it-all wide receiver in Rondale Moore out of Purdue. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss the his role within the offense and as a kick returner. Plus, how does the addition of Moore affect the depth chart within the wide receivers room? Pass catcher, by the way, was a popular position on Friday as both the Seahawks and Rams went receiver with their first picks of the draft.

Cardinals Cover 2 - Zaven Collins The Choice At 16
Ep. 418 - Though not the name most often linked to the Cardinals, linebacker Zaven Collins became the clear choice of general manager Steve Keim once the team was on the clock with the 16th overall pick. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki explain the selection and what Collins adds to the defense, especially when paired with Isaiah Simmons, last year’s pick in the first round. No, linebacker wasn’t necessarily a need, but with the top two cornerbacks and the three best wide receivers off the board, Collins was too good of a talent to pass up.

Cardinals Underground - It's A Draft Bonanza Extravaganza
The draft is here – hopefully, Kyle Shanahan, the world won’t end this weekend – so Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Kyle Odegard have a lot to chat about. Who should/will the 49ers take at No. 3 for quarterback, who might the Cardinals take at 16 if all the “hot” names are gone, could the Cards trade down, whether a running back in the first round makes sense, the fears of the Caleb Farley injuries, cornerback as priority and maybe trading up, the Kliff House, spending a pick on a punter, and yes, a little more Fitz speculation.

Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss—for one final time—many of those names, and they are names that seem to fall into one of two categories: cornerback and wide receiver.

Cardinals Underground - Mocking The Silly Season
The time for the NFL draft is near, which means we’re hip-deep in mock drafts and speculation. Little wonder Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Kyle Odegard use that to their advantage, as they talk about oh so many mocks, how desperate is the need for cornerback in the first round, just what is valuable in the first round (is it receiver?), the second round and whether an edge rusher fits (and a story about Denny Green’s draft predictions), the importance of the class overall in future roster-building, trading for a tight end, P2’s goodbye essay and of course, this week’s Fitz theory.
