Taking Blaine Gabbert at 5th overall is a huge need and is a very solid pick if you like him as a franchise QB. Cam Heyward is a great pick that doesn’t fill a need but is great value. Greg Jones fits well in Arizona’s system and could fairly productive and Pernell McPhee gives you versatility that could play either OLB or DE. Josh Bynes is another linebacker and I don’t know if you need 3 linebackers out of this draft. Courtney Smith and Preston Dial are not draftable prospects. Drafting Ray Dominguez finally addresses OL which is a huge need. If they could have done better in the late rounds it could have been a great draft.
