The Arizona Cardinals have some options with their late round picks in which ways they can go.
The late round is all about finding players that can make a roster and hang with the team.
One player to know and keep an eye on, someone I have looked at for the Cardinals is Hamilcar Rashed Jr.
Rashed Jr. played at Caesar Chavez High School in Laveen, AZ and was a three-star recruit who went to Oregon State.
Rashed Jr. has talked openly about how it would be fun to follow in the footsteps of Christian Kirk and Byron Murphy Jr. who both played at Saguaro High School and play for the Arizona Cardinals, the home team.
Oregon State OLB Hamilcar Rashed, a Phoenix native, said it would be cool to follow the Christian Kirk/Byron Murphy path and head back home.
“That would be fun. I see a lot of Arizona people going to the Cardinals. They draft them there and they’re doing great.”

Rashed Jr. improved each season at Oregon State until his senior season and the Covid-19 shortened season.
As a freshman not much, as a sophomore he had 2.5 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss, then he broke out as a junior, 14 sacks and 22.5 tackles for loss.
That is what you have to look at for Rashed Jr.
He has some talent, tested well with 25 reps on the bench and a 4.58 forty yard dash.
He is projected as a sixth or seventh rounder, what would you think?
