Cardinals GM Steve Keim on No. 1 overall pick: ‘It’s embarrassing as hell’

The Arizona Cardinals are officially on the clock now that the regular season has ended and they finished the campaign with the NFL’s worst record.

With just three wins, Arizona secured the No. 1 overall pick next April. And while fans are excited about this opportunity to add an elite player, team general manager Steve Keim has a different take.

That’s pretty brutal. Through from a man who is lucky to have retained his job it’s also understandable.

It’s going to be fascinating to see what Keim does with this pick. It’s also going to be interesting to see what the Cardinals do atop the organization now that they’ve made Steve Wilks a one-and-done head coach.

The NFC West is a brutal place these days, and if Keim and Co. don’t hit a couple of home runs there’s a good chance they’ll be picking atop the draft again next year.
