  • National Football League draft: Temple's Haason Reddick goes to Cardinals with 13th pick

The most notable one, of course, is that Haason Reddick has emerged as the clear favorite for the Colts in mock drafts, with no other player within 16% of him on this pie chart. He played defensive end in college but will take that skill and use it at linebacker. There aren't a lot of linebackers who play downhill on first and second downs, rush the passer on third down and contribute on special teams as effectively as the native of Camden, N.J. The 4.52 he ran in the 40-yard dash at the combine, the arms that measured nearly 33 inches and the 10½-inch hands only reinforced the stupidity of those so-called crack pro scouts. After recording 65 tackles and 10.5 sacks in his senior season, he earned First-Team All-AAC honors. Palmer also played for Arians during his days with the Owls.

"I came so far - literally from the bottom", Reddick said.

Reddick said in a conference call that he expected the Cardinals to pick him if he was still available, based on his visit to Arizona a few weeks ago.

Arizona already has two fierce pass rushers in Chandler Jones and Markus Golden on the outside.

It was fitting that Reddick's NFL career began the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, following his rise from a walk-on at Temple University to a standout linebacker who rocketed up draft boards ever since dominant performances at the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine.

The Cardinals didn't get the quarterback they wanted.

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said Reddick is "one of the very best stories in this draft when you talk about a guy who has overcome adversity". I don't know who wouldn't want to live here.

Free Press sports writers Dave Birkett and Carlos Monarez look at the 2017 National Football League draft (April 27-29) from a Lions perspective. He's too small to spend much time as a defensive end, but his past as a high school safety gives him the background to handle any two-way assignments the Cardinals afford him at the next level.

The Lions, who own the 21st pick in the draft, have a significant need at the linebacker position, where Whitehead and newly-signed Paul Worrilow are in the final year of their contracts. "It was a mystery the last couple of weeks", Trubisky said. Whether he ultimately grows into a role as a sideline-to-sideline inside linebacker likely depends on how Reddick takes to the coverage aspect of the position, because he won't become a true three-down linebacker until he proves he can move backward and laterally as well as he moves forward.

"When looking at the SAM linebacker and what they're asked to do on a day-to-day basis, 70-percent of the game their hand will be in the ground", Saleh said earlier this month. Their hard work and the things that they have done.

Standing in at 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, Reddick will be a force to be reckoned with for opposing offensive lines.
