The Cardinals can’t pass on Leinart. They’d be getting a top 3 player in the 10th slot. Denny Green is no idiot.
ESPN has Matt Leinart on the phone. That’s a good sign. Time to end his agony.
The bad news is that Leinart stayed in school, didn’t get a second Heisman or a third national championship, and fell nine spots in the draft. The good news, though, is that he’s going to a well run team and a smart head coach.
This draft is humming along fast. The last couple years, it seemed like all the teams took every second they had available. We’ve gone through ten guys in 97 minutes.
Leinart is putting a positive spin on things with Susie Kolber. There are indeed worse things that can happen than being picked later in the 1st round than one had expected.
