Arizona Cardinals Draft Clemson Line Backer Isaiah Simmons

The Arizona Cardinals selected Line Backer Isaiah Simmons from Clemson University in the 8th pick in the NFL draft Thursday night.

Sports writers say Simmons is a versatile player with a lot of speed making him a good pick to help the Cardinals' Defense.

The Cardinals had a disappointing 5-10-1 record last season.

The Red Birds also tapped promising wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the off season.

The Cardinals are putting faith in quarterback Kyler Murray, who was the first overall pick in the 2019 Draft and showed signs of brilliance last season.

It remains unclear if the NFL will commit to a regular season this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
