The Arizona Cardinals went for a quarterback in the fourth round of the NFL draft, taking Virginia Tech's big Logan Thomas.
At 6-foot-6, 248 pounds and with a strong arm, Thomas could be groomed as an eventual replacement for 34-year-old Carson Palmer.
Coach Bruce Arians had downplayed the idea of taking a quarterback in later rounds, but he reportedly loved what he saw during in-person visits with Thomas.
''It just felt right from the first time meeting coach Arians and (quarterbacks) coach (Freddie) Kitchens.
Some teams thought Thomas would be better suited at tight end but Thomas said Arians assured him he would be a quarterback.
