While we have been running two mock drafts ourselves here on the site, there have been other mock drafts going on seemingly everywhere else. What is interesting is that, at least for the Arizona Cardinals, the picks are all over the place. There is even one that has the most surprising pick I have seen this year.
Hit the jump to see what a few of the mock drafts around the web have the Cardinals doing with the 13th overall pick in the draft.
Nothing against Paris Lenon and Stewart Bradley, but Arizona can do better. Drafting Kuechly gives the defense a center piece, something to tie it all together and prevent a weak middle from undoing what should be a solid secondary and a good front.
Drafting Kuechly would likely mean the end of Bradley's disappointing stay with the Cardinals, but Kuechly with Washington could provide some very athletic plays in the field.
The Cardinals' offensive line needs upgrading, and with both Reiff and Stanford guard David DeCastro still available, Arizona's in the right place at the right time in this round.
On CBSSports.com, the pair of prognosticators Rob Rang and Dane Brugler differ as well.
Rang has the Cardinals grabbing Melvin Ingram, while Brugler has the biggest surprise pick I have seen -- receiver Justin Blackmon. Blackmon goes as high as sixth in many mocks, but he falls to the Cardinals, who swoop him up to pair with Larry Fitzgerald.
Wouldn't that be nice?
