2013 NFL mock draft: Do the Arizona Cardinals pick a QB or OL?

Mike Zarrilli

Some of the latest projections have the Cards selecting one of a couple of signal callers or also an offensive lineman.

Outside of the search for a head coach and a general manager, Arizona Cardinals fans have the NFL Draft to wait for. While it is way too early, there are projections all over the place. There is little doubt that the two greatest needs are on the offensive line and at quarterback. In a series of mock drafts, each has the Cards taking a different player, but each has either a quarterback or an offensive lineman.

SB Nation's mock draft has the Cards making what will be considered a reach, taking Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson. However, while some are quite high on him, the comments in his scouting report cite footwork, mechanics and accuracy as issues. Sounds like other QBs the team already has.

Rob Rang at CBS Sports has the Cards going with a quarterback, this time with USC's Matt Barkley. Having seen Barkley struggle two straight years against Arizona State, I definitely have concerns, although he has been spectacular in many other games. While he might not be a popular pick for Cards fans, as Rang notes, "that may not matter come draft day."

Also at CBS Sports. Dane Brugler has Arizona going with a lineman, Taylor Lewan from Michigan. Brugler says that Lewan "could be a Pro Bowl blocker" and that he gets "overlooked" with the two tackles from Texas A&M.

If you had to choose, would you go with Wilson, Barkley or Lewan?
