The Arizona Cardinals traded their No. 23 pick for Hollywood Brown during the first round of the NFL Draft in late April with a specific vision in mind, Alex Evans of Larry Brown Sports reports.

During an appearance Wednesday on “The Pat McAfee Show,” Cardinals GM Steve Keim was asked why he felt the need to add Brown to the roster.

“The trade made a lot of sense for a number of reasons,” Keim said. “We wanted to get another deep threat, a guy who can take the top off the defense. And then obviously the built-in chemistry that he already has with our quarterback.”

Brown, who played with Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray at Oklahoma, should be able to live up to Keim’s expectations.

In 2021, the 24-year-old caught 91 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games.

He will also provide valuable depth while DeAndre Hopkins serves a six-game suspension to begin the 2022 season.
