The Arizona Cardinals are getting some extra help this NFL Draft.

During the lead up to the team’s pick of UCLA offensive lineman Jon Gaines II, there was a noticeable addition to Arizona’s war room in the form of a very good dog.

The pup, who is believed to be owner Michael Bidwill’s (as confirmed by GM Monti Ossenfort), is the latest canine to steal the NFL Draft show.

“When we would clap at the pick she would get excited and start barking. I don’t know if she liked the pick or didn’t like the pick, it’s hard to say,” Ossenfort said. “But that was a good addition for Saturday at the draft.”

During the 2020 NFL Draft, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick’s dog, Nike, looked to be in full control of the team’s doings when the cameras caught the pooch in the captain’s chair during the first round.

Nike’s work was far from over, too, as the pup was also present with all the necessary prep in paw for the 2021 NFL Draft.

As for the Cardinals’ dog, it must have been a big fan of the offense, with the team taking UCLA offensive lineman Jon Gaines II at No. 122 before nabbing Houston quarterback Clayton Tune with at No. 139.

Tune did say he felt like he was the best quarterback in the class when talking to reporters after the Cardinals drafted him. Maybe the dog has a knack for digging up diamonds in the rough? Only time will tell.

Regardless of how that all pans out, a look at some of the best reactions across social media from those around the NFL and team:
