Mel Kiper 2024 NFL Draft grades: Arizona Cardinals get high marks

The Arizona Cardinals had their 2024 NFL Draft and it was one to remember.

Hopefully in a great way.

However it is rare to see 12 picks made in one season, and the fact that the Cardinals had seven of those picks on days one and two was even more impressive.

We will go through the grades over the next couple of days but when Mel Kiper Jr. the Godfather of the NFL Draft media drops his grades, well that gets its own story.

From E$PN:

Arizona Cardinals: A

Top needs entering the draft: Wide receiver, cornerback, edge defender

“I really could have listed a few more needs above, including each position on defense. While the Cardinals surprised most everyone by winning four games last season, this is still a team with a below-average roster. They really needed a talent infusion in this draft, and they entered Thursday with 11 picks, tied for the most in the league. So, yes, general manager Monti Ossenfort could have traded down from No. 4 to add even more capital, but I like that he went with both the best prospect available and the team’s biggest need. Marvin Harrison Jr. (4) has everything it takes to be a future All-Pro wide receiver.”

Kiper went on, and on, and on about what the Arizona Cardinals did in the 2024 NFL Draft but his conclusion is important:

“All in all, Ossenfort used 12 picks and hit all of the Cardinals’ top needs, including throwing four defensive backs at a porous pass D. This is a well-rounded and super-talented class.”

The Arizona Cardinals were one of two teams to earn an “A” grade from Kiper.

We won’t know how this class really grades for a year or two, but thoughts are positive coming out of the draft and that is nice.
