2012 Daily Norseman Community Mock Draft - Arizona Cardinals

New, comments

Picks 1 through 12 are in the books.

  1. Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck, QB Stanford
  2. Washington Redskins - Robert Griffin III, QB Baylor
  3. Minnesota Vikings - Matt Kalil, OT USC
  4. Cleveland Browns - Trent Richardson, RB Alabama
  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Morris Claiborne, CB LSU
  6. St. Louis Rams - Justin Blackmon, WR Oklahoma State
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars - Michael Floyd, WR Notre Dame
  8. Miami Dolphins - Ryan Tannehill, QB Texas A&M
  9. Carolina Panthers - Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
  10. Buffalo Bills - Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
  11. Kansas City Chiefs - David DeCastro OG Stanford
  12. Seattle Seahawks - Luke Kuechly LB Boston College

I think the Floyd and Coples picks are surprises as I have stated before.

Now let's look at the Cardinals.

walterfootball.com lists their needs as ...

2 OTs - They signed Levi Brown. Is it too early for Jonathan Martin?

WR - Is this too early for Kendall Wright or Stephen Hill?

ILB - Kuechly is gone so this is probably too early for Hightower (or is it?)

DE depth - Coples is gone but Ingram and Upshaw are available

Rush LB - Ingram and Upshaw are available

Right G - Is is too early for Cordy Glenn or can guards be found later?

I think Jonathan Martin would be an excellent pick here. They need to protect those QBs and really do not have much besides Brown.

I think it is too early for a WR since the Cardinals do not have a 2nd round pick.

They could go Fletcher Cox here to back up Darnell Dockett and Calais Campbell but that would be overkill and a waste.

It probably will come down to Ingram vs Upshaw.
