Cards GM: To say QB class is thin a “cop out”

The Arizona Cardinals are one of the NFL clubs other than the Bills that have made no secret of their preference to draft a quarterback. But new GM Steve Keim is not about to buy into the general consensus that the quarterback class is not a deep one, and so finding a QB in the draft for the Cardinals will prove difficult.

In an interview with the Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers, it was suggested to Keim that the draft class was thin at quarterback. This was his response.

“I think that’s a little bit of a cop-out,” said Keim. “Everybody likes to say it’s not as deep at certain positions, but I think if you have confidence in your system, you’re always able to find certain players at certain points in the draft who are value picks.”

Keim answered in the affirmative when asked if he feels he has to flood the quarterback position with options on his roster. The Cardinals GM said they would have to explore trade options and consider the position in every round of the draft.

Kansas City and Arizona are the two clubs ahead of the Bills in round one that have been forecast by draft prognosticators to be interested in taking a quarterback.
