2015 NFL mock draft: Arizona Cardinals looking pass rush in Round 1

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Some way too early projections for 2015.

We recently had the 2014 NFL Draft and people are already mocking the 2015 draft? It is true. 

In two different 2015 mocks, the Arizona Cardinals are projected to look for pass rush help in the first round. However, that is not the focus of this thread. 

Todd McShay put together his first 2015 projections, but it is interesting how he put together his draft order. He used the win projections from Football Outsiders. Those projections have the Cards only going 8-8, being the best team not in the postseason once again. They pick Clemson pass rusher Vic Beasley.

SB Nation's 2015 mock uses Las Vegas Super Bowl odds to determine the draft order. Using that method, the Cardinals would pick 22nd, which means they would be a playoff team  that loses in the first round. In that mock, Arizona is projected to pick Missouri pass rusher Markus Golden.

What draft order makes more sense to you? Do you know anything about these two players?
