For the Arizona Cardinals the weekend was a productive one.
They finished with a string day three offering a number of dynamic, athletic prospects with upside.
They also got one that potentially could be an anchor pivot after Rodney Hudson moved on.
With the Cardinals final pick in the 2021 NFL Draft the Arizona Cardinals selected Penn State center Michael Menet.
An interesting look from Bucs Nation:
The scouting community is reportedly buzzing about Menet, however. Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline listed him as a riserin December, calling him “one of the best-kept secrets at the center position” and complimenting his technique and scheme versatility. ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Jr. also threw out some praise.
Being unable to perform athletic tests will likely prevent Menet from improving perceptions that have already been formed among the scouting community, but it’s unlikely that it will hurt him too badly either.
What do you think about Menet to finish off the Arizona Cardinals 2021 NFL Draft?
