Here are his stats again for his last 3 years of college

2012: 49 tackles, 9 TKLS, 5.5 sacks
2013: 43 tackles, 10.5 TKLS, 4.5 sacks
2014: 57 tackles, 13 TKLS, 7 sacks

With the length, athleticism, and minimal football playing experience, this is Keim swinging for the fences (which I don't mind).

Keim had to have been targeting Gunter in the 4th round before the draft even started. I think it was the same for John Brown.

Somers: Gunter said he's surprised he went in 4th. Thought 5th thru 7th

Face palm.

Who would have predicted Brown went round 3 last year...Kiem doesn't care about projections.

Urban: Gunter said the plan would be for him to play DE in 3-4 on 1st, 2nd downs, and move inside in four-down nickel situations. #CardsDraft

Somers: azcardinals traded up in 4th round because they were convinced another team close to that area was going to take Gunter.

I was told that team was the Chiefs.

Keim just said in his wrap up presser that he was given intel by "a little birdie" that Gunter would be off the board in this area. Keim said another GM called him afterwards to tell him he was right. So it seems Gunter wouldn't have made it much further.

Honestly I can't give this pick a bad grade because I simply haven't seen him and this is one of those picks where you just can't help but think they know something about this Gunter kid that we don't.

With guys like Buckner, Redding, Campbell, and Rucker to coach this kid up, hopefully he becomes a good player in 2-3 years.

FWIW, Arians and Keim both said Buckner loves the kid. Bruce said Buckner went to work him out and was quote "foaming at the mouth" to work with him.

Maybe another John Brown on our hands?
