The Arizona Cardinals have met with many prospects in the NFL draft. They have had interviews at the NFL combine, private workouts, official visits to the team facility and even virtual meetings.
One player they have met with virtually is North Dakota tackle Matt Waletzko, according to The Draft Network’s Justin Melo. Waletzko has met virtually with the Cardinals and at least four other teams.
Waletzko played last tackle for North Dakota and had starting experience as a freshman. He battled injuries in 2019 and 2020 but bounced back this last season.
He played in the Senior Bowl and was impressive at the combine.
He is a long 6-7 and 305 lbs. he has long 36-inch arms and ran the 40 at the combine in 5.03 seconds.
He needs to get strong but has a frame to be successful in the NFL at tackle.
With five selections in the final two rounds of the draft and the tradition of drafting offensive linemen on Day 3, he could be a name to watch.
