Draft Reaction: Arizona selects WR Michael Floyd

I have a rule that I dubbed the ‘eight year rule’, which states that when a team makes a wildly successful pick in the first round and drafts a cornerstone player, that once eight years pass, it is no longer too early to pick at that position.

The wildly successful pick made by the Cardinals in the 2004 draft was Pittsburgh’s Larry Fitzgerald.  In 2012, they add Michael Floyd to the mix.  And for the first time this offseason, it would seem like the San Francisco 49ers might have inadequate defensive personnel to handle the best receivers in the division.  It’s asking a lot for Carlos Rogers to clone himself.

This draft-strategy altering selection gives the Cards a full complement of process points.  They won’t be able to get their QB in the future in the second round however, because they traded that pick last July for their quarterback of the future, Kevin Kolb.

Arizona Cardinals Process Points: 5
