Leinart Falls to Right Spot


Ballroom dancing may have cost Matt Leinart more than $10 million in guaranteed money, but I’d bet he’d do it all over again if given the opportunity.

Leinart was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the tenth overall pick of the NFL draft yesterday. In falling to ten, he managed to avoid a plethora of teams going nowhere while winding up with one on the immediate rise.

Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald are two of the best young wideouts in the league and Edgerrin James has rushed for over 1200 yards each of the last three seasons. Considering that former two time MVP Kurt Warner hasn’t played a full season since 2001, Leinart gets the chance to learn from one of the best and will more than likely end up starting.

Leinart really couldn’t ask for much more. While the two other “stud” quarterbacks (Vince Young and Jay Cutler) of this draft class will be forced to run their team right away, he gets to learn behind the scenes on what should be a playoff team.
