Arizona Cardinals draft Christian Kirk in Round 2

The Arizona Cardinals nabbed a receiver in the second round to go along with their first-round quarterback.

The Desert Birds selected Texas A&M receiver Christian Kirk with the No. 47 overall pick Friday night.

The 5-foot-11 wideout is a home-grown Arizona product, attending Saguaro High School in Scottsdale. In three seasons at Texan A&M, Kirk compiled 2,856 receiving yards and 26 TD receptions. In 2017 he compiled 919 receiving yards and 10 scores.

Arguably the draft’s best downfield and perimeter passer, White is a favorite of many NFL teams for the middle rounds. A quality athlete who’s a natural thrower, he fits best with a creative offensive coordinator who can maximize his downfield ability — similar to the pairing of Sean McVay and Goff.

In the right setting (such as Miami), White can become one of Cheap Hockey Jerseys the Cheap Football Jerseys From China draft’s best passers.

Despite Falk’s struggles with turnovers and missed throws thanks to mediocre anticipation, NFL teams like his upside. A tall, experienced Pac-12 passer, he has good feet for a big quarterback and the required mental ability to handle the NFL game on the whiteboard.

If he can sit behind an experienced NFL starter (like Tom Brady in New England), Falk might develop into a capable NFL passer.

This means that Gates will either retire or play for another team in 2018. The 37-year-old former undrafted free agent out of Kent State will end his Chargers career ranked No. 1 on the franchise’s all-time list in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Los Angeles’ decision has as much to do with Gates’ lack of recent production as it has to do with the emergence of 2016 second-round pick Hunter Henry. Gates tallied 30 receptions for 316 yards last season. Meanwhile, Henry put up a 45-579 stat line.
