35 -- -- Brian Winters, G, Kent (TEN) Tyler Wilson, QB, Ark (DET)
36 -- -- -- Jordan Hill, DT, PSU (ATL)

The first round is close to a nightmare scenario for the Cardinals. As is being projected in the real draft, the first three tackles have already been taken. Chance Warmack is even off the board.
1-7: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU (Scouting)

With Larry Warford out of the picture, Matt Elam, Menelik Watson and Kevin Minter make a lot of sense.
2-6: Matt Elam, S, Florida (Scouting)

I think I'd have to stick with Barrett Jones in the third round, but I could see the team pursuing any of the players taken with the first twenty-or-so picks (maybe not the defensive linemen).
3-7: Barrett Jones, C/G, Alabama (Scouting)

With three of the team's biggest needs already addressed in the first three rounds, the Cardinals could go almost any direction here. JJ Wilcox and Duke Williams would add depth to the secondary, Alvin Bailey would help out the interior line even more, and I would love to see Quanterus Smith or Trevardo Williams in Cardinal red... but the team could use some help at one position in particular that falls off a cliff after the fourth round.
4-6: Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida (Scouting)

Barner, Ware and Wooten would all be interesting picks for the Cardinals. They all have experience as special teams return men, and would help with the depth at RB and CB, respectively. I think the better value and best fit might be a speedy little receiver/returner, though.
5-7: Marquise Goodwin, WR, Tennessee (Scouting)

Finally, the kickers and punters start going. Plenty of options for the Cardinals here. Many of the last remaining "starter upside" offensive linemen get swept up in the sixth round. Tight end is a consideration but I'm not sure I'd take any of those guys before the seventh. No, I'm too tempted to stop the slide of one of the draft's top five quarterbacks.
6-6: Mike Glennon, QB, NC State (Scouting)

LaAdrian Waddle makes sense as a developmental tackle prospect, especially if the team prefers Nate Potter at guard. Caleb Sturgis wouldn't be a bad pick, but I don't think the team needs to draft a kicker. I'm tempted to go for a tight end here, but there are plenty of borderline draftable guys left at this point. Adding a potential gem at safety in Rontez Miles is tempting, too, but like with the tight ends, there are enough safeties left that I like that it makes sense to wait to see who doesn't get drafted. Instead, I'll take one of the best players left on the board, an overlooked small-school interior lineman that could have easily gone a round earlier.
7-13: Garrett Gilkey, G, Chadron State (Scouting)

Red's Undrafted Free Agent picks:
Troy Davis, DE/OLB, UCF - Davis played at both defensive end and outside linebacker at UCF. He shows the same speed and power in shorts as he does on film and is a nice sleeper 3-4 OLB prospect
John Lotulelei, LB, UNLV - Lotulelei is a draftable player. Though undersized, he timed well at the Combine and projects as an aggressive, downhill attacking 'backer (Scouting)
Luke Willson, TE, Rice - An ankle-injury slowed him during the 2012 season but Willson showed serious NFL potential as a receiver and blocker at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl (Scouting)
Emmett Cleary, T, Boston College - Good length but limited athleticism, Cleary should make a good back-up who can play either on either side (Scouting)
Charles Johnson, WR, Grand Valley State - Nice size and speed with a Cardinals connection (Scouting)
Earl Okine, DE, Florida - A late-riser, Okine has generated a ton of buzz leading up to the draft with physical play and a nice combination of size and speed (Scouting)
Brandan Bishop, S, NC State - An instinctive, consistent safety with the tools to develop into a solid starter (Scouting)
Zachary Ramirez, K, Portland State - Our special teamers are solid, but replaceable. We already have a second punter on the roster (Scouting)
