When Cardinals GM Steve Keim was asked about fourth-round pick Dorian Johnson's liver condition, he responded with a joke. "Some think coach (Bruce Arians) and I have some liver issues but we're doing just fine." After a moment, Keim admitted it was a "terrible joke. But no, he's fine. He's doing alright." Arians said Johnson "knows how to manage it," referring to Johnson's condition that has his liver enzymes increased by five times higher than normal. Later Arians added his own quip: "I'm still learning mine."
The Cardinals had needs to fill in this year's draft and that's exactly what they did, making seven picks in three days with the help of three trades. Arizona added a slew of versatile players that can help them compete for a playoff berth this season. However, there was one position Arizona didn't address: Quarterback.
Here are the Cardinals picks from this year's draft: 1. Haason Reddick, LB, Temple; 2. Budda Baker, DB, Washington; 3. Chad Williams, WR, Grambling; 4. Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh; 5. Will Holden, T, Vanderbilt; 5. T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina; 6. Johnathan Ford, S, Auburn.
It looks like the Cardinals may have found the cornerback they were looking for in this year's draft. Rudy Ford, who Arizona traded into the sixth round to draft, said the Cardinals talked to him about playing cornerback. When Ford converted from a running back to defensive back in 2013, he played cornerback. Over the last three seasons, Ford also played safety and nickel but said he trained as a cornerback this offseason.
New Cardinals defensive back Johnathan Ford goes by "Rudy" which is a nickname given to him by his mother when he was little. It came from the football movie "Rudy" because of Ford's determination and "never give up" attitude.
