Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he would understand if the team selects a quarterback during the 2014 NFL Draft, because he knows the team has to think about its future. ‘If you are in a position to draft the best player on your board, and that’s the best position to be in as an organization, and (a quarterback) is the best player on the board, you are not only making your team better by creating competition but you are helping out the future,’ Palmer said.
Footballguys View: Palmer knows the score. He’s in the twilight of his career, and the Cardinals need to find the next quarterback to groom behind him. There’s a few big-armed quarterbacks who could interest the Cardinals in the draft. Players like Derek Carr, Zach Mettenberger or Tom Savage may be on their radar.
