2014 NFL Draft: Cardinals Pick 27th, Select Deone Buchannon
Safety was not a huge need for the Cardinals, but they got my favorite Safety in the draft in Buchannon, a big, fluid, athletic Safety who does nothing but make plays, make tackles, and play the football. He is a beast who far outplayed Clinton-Dix and Pryor in 2013. He has 15 career picks at Safety, and just looks like a star. He is much more impactful than the two guys picked before him at the position, and will be an underrated star on Sundays. Would he have been there in the second round? Probably, but it's still not a bad pick considering that the true need (QB) was not really a solid get here.
