Quarterbacks:
01 Kyler Murray 5-10 207 R Oklahoma July 28 - So far living up to expectations (leadership, playboook, zip, accuracy etc. Will occasionally "wow" you." He and K2 working on helmet head phone communications...This year's top pick - brings an aggreessive, more mobile offense to the Cards. Key issue is his small size (i.e. throwing lanes/durability).

7/27 - Still has the mojo and figures to line up inside with Kirk...He's b-a-a-a-c-k!! Continues to positively answer the perennial question: "Does he have anything left in the tank. Provides much needed leadership to a young, talented WR unit.

16 Trent Sherfield WR 6-1 205 R Vanderbit 7/27 - Has had some 1st unit work....Up and comer who will be hard pressed to withstand competition from a big talented group of WR prospects...He and K White ran with the first unit on the outside on first day of practice

35 Deionte Thompson S 6-1 195 R Alabama He and Jalen Thompson are already known as "the Thompson Twins" and have legitimate shots at the two safety spots...We got this guy in the 5th round, yet he profiles as an elite centerfielder. He should be fun to watch in 2019. Note- Degenaritive knee concerns dropped him off some team's boards.
34 Jalen Thompson S 5-11 190 R Washington St He and Deionte Thompson are already known as "the Thomson Twins" and have legitimate shots at the two safety spots....Supplemental pick (5th round)
