Cardinals draft San Diego St. QB in sixth round
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals turned to the quarterback position with the second of their two sixth-round draft picks Saturday, choosing Ryan Lindley of San Diego State.
Lindley started a school record 49 consecutive games with the Aztecs, establishing several school passing and total yardage records. He has a strong arm but has had issues with his accuracy. He says he has worked hard in the offseason to improve his footwork.
Arizona chose defensive back Justin Bethel of Presbyterian with the first of its two sixth-round selections.
