Cardinals Take Beanie, Champs take Ziggy

Posted on: April 25, 2009 7:32 pm
Two of the more interesting nicknames were taken as the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft came to a close.
Beanie Wells may not be able to provide the hands out of the backfield the Cardinals may prefer out of their backs, but his physicality and upside was just too much. Considering that ranked him as the 14th best talent of this draft, it is impossible to question his value to the Cardinals with the 31st pick.

The Steelers, likewise, got good value with the 32nd pick, taking Missouri DT Ziggy Hood. Hood's strength and size make him a candidate to play the nose, but I like him best outside as a 5-technique defensive end.
