Mock Draft

Post-Carson Palmer mock draft. Used the prospect rankings at CBS Sports to base what player is available in what round:

1. Chance Warmack OG

Joeckel and Fisher will be gone by the time we pick, or they would be the pick here. Lane Johnson or Jonathan Cooper would be fine here too.

2. Kyle Long OT

Long gets points here for his athleticism and versatility. Could play the guard position if Levi is healthy and eventually take over the LT position in year two or three. Doug Farrar compared him to Nate Solder. Depending on what happens in round one, Larry Warford or Tank Carradine would be fine here too.

3. Jordan Reed TE

When we brought in Josh Cribbs for a look Bruce Arians stated he liked the dynamic element Cribbs brought to the table and envisioned using him at WR and RB. Reed has shown this capability in his college career. Ryan Swope, Corey Lemonier and Shamarko Thomas are other options.

4. Travis Kelce TE

Yes, back to back tight ends. If we were only willing to draft one, Kelce's skill-set seems preferable to our team needs and matches well with current personnel. Scouting reports describe him as a great blocking TE who has the athleticism to stretch the field. Taking Reed and Kelce gives us our poor-man's version of Hernandez and Gronkowski. Nico Johnson, Jon Bostic or Kiko Alonso are other options.

5. Christine Michael RB

His upside in round five overcomes the risk associated with him (injuries, character concerns). Hopefully Bruce Arians' "coach 'em hard, hug 'em after" approach will get the best out of Michael. We're only renting Mendenhall, and Michael could be a great complement to Ryan Williams down the line.

6. Denard Robinson WR

His potential is worth a sixth round pick.

7. Spencer Ware RB

Maybe my favorite player in the draft. Safety net in case Mendenhall or Williams gets injured during the year. Although Arians wants his RBs to run and his WRs to catch, Ware has displayed some amazing catching abilities.
