  The Cardinals stayed at eight, and they went defense. While offensive tackle was a potential target, ultimately GM Steve Keim decided to bolster the other side of the ball, grabbing Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons – who can also be deployed as a safety, a blitzer and potentially some slot corner. "This is one of the most unique players I've ever evaluated," Keim said on the "Cardinals Draft Connection" digital show following the pick. "There's very little this guy can't do. "We vowed to fix this defense." The 6-foot-4, 238-pounder can play the deep middle, play in the box and blitz, Keim said. At the Scouting combine in February, Simmons insisted his position wasn't linebacker as much as "defense." He also brought up on his own his ability to cover tight ends - an issue for the Cardinals in 2019, after the team allowed tight ends 96 receptions for 1,148 yards and 16 touchdowns. - AZCardinals.com
