Vetting not the Cardinals strong suit
636619212612840506-Kirk-Christian

Christian Kirk was drafted in the second round by the Arizona Cardinals, was arrested almost three months before the draft as he was leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Kirk and some friends were seen throwing rocks at cars outside the golf tournament on Feb. 3rd, according to Scottsdale Police. He was charged with damaging property and disorderly conduct-disruptive behavior. The case is pending.

According to Scottsdale Police: "The suspects were intoxicated and leaving the WMPO. As they were walking through a parking lot, (they were observed) throwing rocks at cars and breaking a window of at least one of them."

A Cardinals spokesman said the team was aware of the incident prior to drafting Kirk.

“We spoke with Christian about it at length and also looked into it independently. Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future but while it remains an active legal matter, we won’t comment further.”

There are so many deserving people to draft, and they knew about this in advance, and still took this kid? Doesn't make any sense. Throwing rocks sounds like something a little kid would do. It's called due diligence.
