Butler has great measurables, elite skill in contested situations, and excellent power and balance as a runner after the catch. Kliff Kingsbury is known for getting players open and he'll find ways to feature Butler in mismatches or keep him away from press coverage. Carolina did this for Kelvin Benjamin during Benjamin's rookie year. Butler is a better athlete and pass catcher despite a higher-than-desired rate of concentration drops.

Summary

Butler was a hyped up prospect before the draft and somehow slipped down the board and ended up being the first pick in the fourth round. Butler is a big body WR coming in at 6-5 and 227 lbs and will be able to add some diversity in the Cardinals passing game. The Cardinals also drafted Andy Isabella in the second round but the two will not knock each other in the receiving game as they both have different talents that they can offer. (May 24)
