Gresham’s target is to play in the season opener against Washington, something coach Steve Wilks would love to see.

I can’t wait to get him back out there, Wilks said. When you’re talking about a true leader, he’s on that leadership committee team. A guy that plays with our kind of DNA. He’s gritty. He’s got a lot of fight to him. I like his attitude when he’s out there.

The Cardinals’ tight end room is short on familiar names beyond Gresham, but there is optimism. Ricky Seals-Jones and Gabe Holmes earned praise from Wilks on Tuesday for their ability to both Mel Blount Jersey catch the ball and block. Gresham said he doesn’t feel a responsibility to rush back because he’s excited about the group

You’ve got to push yourself mentally over that edge, he said. Some people have rituals. Some people find different ways of thinking about it. At the end of the day, you just do it.

Nelson, one of the fastest players in the NFL, said his speed can be a mental detriment.

QB Lamar Jackson, Louisville (picked by ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Jr., CBS Sports’ Will Brinson, Bleacher Report’s Mike Tanier, Bleacher Report’s Chris Simms, ESPN’s NFL Nation, The Athletic’s Chris Burke, Pro Football Focus’ Steve Palazzolo, Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller): As Keim said last week, it’s no secret the Cardinals would love to secure a franchise quarterback in the draft. Jackson could be the best available signal-caller if the team remains at No. 15, and this is a very popular pairing by analysts. There are concerns about Jackson’s accuracy, but he is an electric talent with his legs.

WR Calvin Ridley, Alabama (picked by NFL Network’s Bucky Brooks, Charley Casserly and Charles Davis): Ridley and Maryland’s D.J. Moore are generally viewed as the two best pass-catchers in the draft. The Cardinals have a need at the position, Womens Brian Poole Jersey and Ridley has plenty of experience, which could allow him to step in and contribute as a rookie.

QB Josh Rosen, UCLA (picked by NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, ESPN’s Todd McShay): Two prominent draft analysts have Rosen heading to the Cardinals. McShay projects the team trading up to grab him, while Mayock has Rosen going at No. 15. The Bruins’ signal-caller may be the most polished quarterback prospect in the draft and would fill a big need.
