Rotoworld's Evan Silva assigned the Cardinals a "C+" grade for their draft.
Arizona used their first two picks on defensive prospects Temple LB Haason Reddick and Washington DB Budda Baker. "Ultimately, this was a meat-and-potatoes draft with minimal flash," Silva wrote. "Reddick and Baker are the only likely year-one contributors, even if neither is a safe bet to start." CBS Sports' Pete Prisco liked the class quite a bit more, scoring it an "A" and singling out mid-round picks WR Chad Williams and G Dorian Johnson as potential steals. ESPN's Mel Kiper graded it as a "B." May 4 - 12:28 PM

Cardinals selected Temple LB Haason Reddick with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Reddick (6’2/237) played tailback and safety in high school, enrolled at Temple as a walk-on cornerback, and developed into an edge rusher, where Reddick tallied 46 career tackles for loss, 18 sacks, and four forced fumbles and led the nation in TFLs (22.5) as a redshirt senior. Reddick played middle linebacker at the Senior Bowl. He ruined the Combine, testing as a 95th-percentile athlete with 4.52 speed and an absurd 11-foot-1 broad jump. Despite his shortage of size, PFF College gave Reddick its No. 2 run-stop grade among all outside linebackers in 2016, in addition to plus pass-coverage marks. Reddick has drawn Jamie Collins and Clay Matthews comparisons as an exceptionally athletic swiss-army knife. We suspect Reddick will play most of his snaps at inside linebacker in Arizona, also rushing off the edge at times.

NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes Temple LB Haason Reddick will go before before Alabama's Reuben Foster.

Zierlein thinks Reddick will be gone by the No. 15 pick, while colleague Daniel Jeremiah says Reddick is one of the "hottest names right now" in league circles. Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes Reddick could go as high as the Jets' pick at No. 6.

In a poll of NFL evaluators conducted by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Temple LB/EDGE Haason Reddick was named the No. 1 4-3 OLB prospect in the class.

In a similar poll about 3-4 ILBs, however, Reddick finished No. 4 behind Reuben Foster, Jarrad Davis and Zach Cunningham. "There’s a lot of hypothesizing going on with [Reddick]," said one evaluator. "I don’t like to do that with kids. The Senior Bowl put him where he is now in the first round but I never saw that on tape. He’s the real enigma in the draft." Reddick, a former walk-on CB, moved to S early in his career and eventually to DL. "For his size I could see somebody taking him and saying, ‘On run downs we’re going to get you off the ball, and then on third down move you outside and let you rush,’" an AFC evaluator said. "Who’s been able to do that? I can’t think of any." The Senior Bowl was key for Reddick, because many evaluators didn't completely trust his production at Temple. "Those offensive linemen in the American Athletic Conference that Reddick went against are not worth a (expletive)," one personnel man said.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein believes there is a "0% chance" that Temple LB/EDGE Haason Reddick falls to the Texans at No. 25.

There is probably a better chance of Reddick being selected within the first 10 picks than there is of him sliding into the 20's. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah went so far as to say that the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder has a "good chance" of being a top-10 selection. He is vying with Reuben Foster to be the first linebacker drafted on Thursday. Reddick's draft process has been dynamite in all aspects.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah believes that "there's a good chance" Temple LB/EDGE Haason Reddick is drafted within the first 10 picks.

"I can't recall a prospect having a better postseason run than [Reddick]," Jeremiah gushed. "He was the most dominant player at the Senior Bowl and he followed that up with an excellent NFL Scouting Combine and pro day performance. The hype train hasn't slowed down." Not only has the hype train continued to chug steadily along, it might actually be accelerating. The uncertainty surrounding Alabama LB Reuben Foster, who just hasn't been able to get of his own way over the last few months, has probably helped Reddick in his ascension.

Pro Football Focus compared Temple LB/EDGE Haason Reddick to Cleveland Browns LB Jamie Collins.

"Similar to Reddick, Collins is an elite athlete capable of producing in all three phases of defense. Also like Reddick, tackling is Collins’ single biggest issue (50 combined misses in the past three seasons)," writes the PFF analysis team. They refer to the 6-foot-2, 237-pound Temple standout as "a scheme-independent player," one who "shows the instincts, speed and change of direction to help on coverage drops." With Alabama LB Reuben Foster putting in a dismal evaluation process, Reddick has a chance to be the first linebacker off the board come Day 1 on Thursday.

Temple LB/EDGE Haason Reddick has visited the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins have a major need at linebacker, and Reddick is an explosive athlete who fits in any scheme and can play multiple positions because he's equally adept at rushing the passer and dropping into open space in coverage. The 6-foot-2, 237-pounder tore up the NFL Combine with a broad jump of 11-foot-1 and a 40-yard dash of 4.52 seconds. Reddick very well may be gone by the time Washington comes up at No. 17. In fact, NFL.com's Lance Zierlein slotted Reddick No. 5 to the Titans in a mock draft late last month.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein projected Temple LB/EDGE Haason Reddick to go off the board at No. 5 to the Titans.

No prospect has improved their evaluation more during the process than Reddick. He fits in every scheme thanks to his pass rushing skill and comfort in open space when dropping into coverage. He can bend while turning the corner and close thanks to great athleticism. He could be the first off-ball linebacker off the board, or one of the top three edge rushers off the board.

An NFC pro personnel executive told NFL Media's Lance Zierlein that he would not be surprised to see Temple LB Haason Reddick drafted ahead of Alabama LB Reuben Foster.

"I like Foster a lot and I think he's the better player of the two, but Reddick is bigger than Foster and is a legit rusher on the edge, too," the executive said. "Any time you have someone who can rush the quarterback, they get pushed up the board." While Reddick did check into the Combine at 6-foot-2, 237 pounds (eight pounds heavier than Foster), Zierlein is of the opinion that Foster "plays stronger and heavier than Reddick once they hit the grass." Even if Foster still ultimately lands ahead of Reddick in the draft, the latter prospect has done everything right during the pre-draft process and has clearly worked his way into the first-round conversation.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes that Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick has "solidified himself as a first round pick."

Reddick took part in Temple's pro day last Wednesday. While he mostly stood on his Combine numbers (a fair enough move given that he crushed the Combine), the 6-foot-2, 237-pounder did re-take the short shuttle and three-cone drill. He ran just a touch slower in the short shuttle (7.01 seconds at the Combine, 7.02 on pro day), but a bit faster in the three-cone drill (4.37 seconds vs. 4.26 seconds). Following the Combine, CBS Sports' Rob Rang mocked Reddick to the Bengals at No. 9. He has been, without caveat, one of the most impressive performers during the pre-draft process.

In his post-Combine mock draft, CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang pegged Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick to the Bengals at No. 9.

There has not been a hotter draft prospect than Reddick during the process. He built on a strong performance during the Senior Bowl practice week by absolutely demolishing the NFL Scouting Combine over the weekend. And we do mean demolished. The 6-foot-2, 237-pounder posted a mind-boggling broad jump of 11-foot-1 and a stellar 40-yard dash of 4.52 seconds (tops among defensive linemen) during his time in Indianapolis. Even if Rang's top-10 projection doesn't come through, Reddick should probably be considered a solid bet for the first round at this juncture.

Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds to lead all defensive linemen at the NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday.

So basically, the same speed -- at a very similar 6-foot-2, 237 pounds -- as LSU RB Leonard Fournette. Reddick also tied the third-best broad jump among defensive linemen and linebackers at the Combine since 2006, leaping his way to an 11-foot-1 mark to match Darron Lee and AJ Hawk from past festivities in Indianapolis. He impressed during the Senior Bowl practice week, he is impressing at the Combine and he might be working his way into the first round in the process.

Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick posted an 11-foot-1 broad jump at the NFL Combine.

That freaky showing ties him with Darron Lee and AJ Hawk for the third-best mark among defensive linemen and linebackers at the NFL Combine since 2006. Between his dominant performance at the Senior Bowl and his work in Indianapolis, Reddick has made a strong case to go in Rd. 1 in the upcoming NFL Draft.
Mar 5 - 11:47 AM

Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick said that NFL teams are not asking him to put on weight.

Reddick checked into Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine measuring out at 6-foot-2, 237 pounds. He turned heads during the Senior Bowl practice week and could post big numbers in testing on Sunday. Reddick also told reporters on Saturday that pro teams see his potential as both an outside and inside linebacker.
