NFL analyst doesn’t think Cards will take a quarterback

Who will be under center for the Arizona Cardinals in 2011? You can probably cross two of the rookie quarterbacks off your list.

According to ESPN NFL Analyst John Clayton, both Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton won’t likely be available when the Cards make their selection at No. 5 in just a few weeks.

“Neither guy you can be 100-percent sold on,” Clayton told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf. “It’s not like Sam Bradford last year. It’s not like next year when Andrew Luck comes up. Both teams have signed off on his personality and I’d say 100-percent Cam Newton would go No. 3 to Buffalo if he slides down there because of Buddy Nix who knows the SEC and is their general manager. We know that Newton is going to go in the top three and we know Gabbert would go to Cincinnati at No. 4 if he would slide down there. He’s not going to be available for Arizona.”
