NFL Mock Draft 2012: The Current Projections For The Arizona Cardinals

Each week we have our own mock draft. GreaZzy and CardsFan08 do a great job on it. This week, the site projectiosn have the Cardinals trading down and picking up Illinois DE/OLB Whitney Mercilus. That could be a solid pick and it fills a need the Cardinals have.

But what about the other mock drafts that are out there?

SB Nation thinks that Arizona goes with the offensive line, selecting Jonathan Martin at number 13.

The Cardinals are losing Levi Brown in free agency. Even with Brown on the roster, they still needed a better answer on the left side. Martin finally provides some stability and blocking ability to the Cardinals' front five. Perhaps there is still a little life left in Kevin Kolb.

On, Rob Rang and Dana Brugler make their projections. Rang has the Cards taking Courtney Upshaw from Alabama, while Brugler agrees with SB Nation with Martin.

So which would be the better pick? Upshaw, Mercilus or Martin?
