RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Cardinals struck for Golden in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft with notable 3-4 outside linebackers Randy Gregory and Owamagbe Odighizuwa still on the board, surprising talking heads and viewers alike. Golden has responded by climbing the depth chart throughout the offseason and even logging first-team reps at weak-side linebacker early in training camp. If the trend continues, he could usurp the role intended for Lorenzo Alexander, which isn't a hit to the veteran due to his ability to play all four LB spots as well as his special teams prowess. In his final season at the pass-rush factory that is Missouri, Golden notched 78 tackles (43 solo) and 10 sacks in 13 games.
