NFL Draft experts react to the Arizona Cardinals' first-round pick
They eventually tabbed Washington State safety Deone Bucannon after moving back to the No. 27 pick after a trade with the New Orleans Saints, and here's how media members and draft experts reacted to the Cardinals' pick:
#Cardinals get my 4th rated safety... But it was obvious when they traded down that was their target...— Seth Cox (@SethCoxFB) May 9, 2014
Bruce Arians talked last week about the growing importance of having a safety who could cover. Is Deone Bucannon that guy?— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) May 9, 2014
Bucannon is 6-1, 211 pounds. He's the big safety the #AZCardinals needed.— Josh Weinfuss (@joshweinfuss) May 9, 2014
Arizona Cardinals secondary: Patrick Peterson Antonio Cromartie Deone Bucannon Yeremiah Bell Honey Badger That's very formidable— Jason McIntyre (@jasonrmcintyre) May 9, 2014
I had Bucannon going to the Pats a few picks later and I know the Eagles considered him too. Hits like a jackhammer and has wheels— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) May 9, 2014
Bucannon is a big hitter, 6-1 211. #azcardinals could go big in secondary with Cro, Pat P and this guy.— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) May 9, 2014

Deone Buchannon didn't make his Varsity HS football team until junior year. Lettered in golf 4 straight years.. Arizona makes perfect sense— trey wingo (@wingoz) May 9, 2014
