2012 NFL Mock Draft: Arizona Cardinals Get OT...Or Not In Latest Projections

The Senior Bowl is coming up this weekend. It is the most notable event right now going on with the NFL Draft. Nonetheless, the mock draft projections keep coming. As the Arizona Cardinals pick at number 13, they will have a number of ways they could go, but the most coveted prospects at key positions will likely already be off the board. However, with multiple needs, there should be a solid choice of talented players from which to choose.

Our own ROTB mock draft projected a bit of a surprise in Whitney Mercilus, an OLB from Illinois. But what about some of the latest mocks?

Over at SB Nation, the Arizona Cardinals will land an offensive lineman -- Ohio State's Mike Adams.

On Adams:

I mocked Adams pretty high last week, and nothing got me more hate mail. I can take it. I think his stock will get a big boost this week in Mobile at the Senior Bowl. Arizona needs all kinds of help along their front five.

Over at CBS Sports, though, Rob Rang has Arizona snagging receiver Kendall Wright:

The Cardinals surprised many when they stuck to their board and took cornerback Patrick Peterson with the fifth pick overall last April when they had bigger areas of need. Similarly, if there were a pass rusher or offensive tackle worthy of consideration here the Cardinals would obviously be interested but with none of value available, Arizona could be forced to look at alternative options. One attractive possibility would be adding a playmaker opposite Larry Fitzgerald like Wright.

Either choice would not only be a pretty good talent, but also fill a need on the team.

What would you think? If down to those two players, would you go with Adams or Wright?
