It’s the time of year after we play out mock draft simulations for the Arizona Cardinals each week. Last week, we played out taking a cornerback in the first round, which is a very real chance.
However what if the Cardinals trip with an offensive lineman in Round 1?
Right here’s the scenario I played out in a original seven-round mock draft simulation. The Cardinals accept two cornerbacks later but probably gained’t be able to be counted on to play in Year 1.
Right here is how it plays out.
It’d be the first offensive lineman the Cardinals have taken in the first round since D.J. Humphries. He may play legal tackle or work his way into the lineup with a veteran starting the year. He may also project to be a starting left tackle after 2022 if the Cardinals are willing to let D.J. Humphries leave in free agency.
He has the frame to play in the NFL and tasks to playing the boundary fully. This isn’t a bad pickup, but it absolutely is believed the talent after the head three in the draft is a significant dropoff. Adebo may be a very reliable player but no longer dynamic.
Smith is long and constructed to play a 3-4 outside linebacker. He wants to accept stronger but potentially may make contributions as a each so regularly pass rusher and being part of defensive coordinator Vance Joseph’s all-linebacker package.
The Cardinals accept a small-school stud who can produce into a nice player or at least give special teams upside. Some ogle him as potentially a safety.
