NFL Mock Drafts 2013: Cardinals to take either lineman or quarterback

New, comments

A collection of mock drafts from around the NFL have the Arizona Cardinals taking either a quarterback or an offensive tackle with the seventh overall pick.

We are still a long ways off from the draft, but that isn't going to stop sites from around the web from creating mock drafts. The Senior Bowl just finished up, so the mocks have shifted around a bit since last time. Still, each and every prominent site I came across has the Cardinals taking either a quarterback or an offensive lineman.

Take Walter Football, for example. They believe the Cardinals end up going with Eric Fisher, an offensive tackle out of Central Michigan. There are some that even believe he was asserted himself into the top spot among offensive lineman, leapfrogging Luke Joeckel, in this draft.

SB Nation feels the same way as writer Dan Kadar mocked Fisher to the Cards as well. He notes that Fisher turned plenty of heads at the Senior Bowl and was far and away the best player in attendance. If he's the pick, he would likely start at left tackle right away for Arizona.

Then there are the outlets that believe the Cardinals tackle their problems by starting at the head. We have seen plenty of mocks handing Matt Barkley of USC over to the Cards. Gil Brandt of NFL.com still feels that way. As does Rob Rang of CBS Sports.

Oddly enough, there seems to be another signal caller that is rising up the boards. Dane Brugler, Rang's partner over at CBS, thinks Mike Glennon of NC State is the guy that ends up with the Cards. Glennon is a big quarterback with an equally as big arm, so given that Bruce Arians loves the deep ball, this pick makes some sense. The question is whether or not the Cards would reach for him.

Lastly, Bucky Brooks of NFL.com recently updated his draft order and he has Luke Joeckel falling right into Arizona's lap. Eric Fisher goes to the Chargers at 11 in his scenario. Apparently it is a matter of preference between Fisher and Joeckel right now.

What do you think? Which of these mock drafts make the most sense? Who do you want the Cardinals to take? Tell us in the comments section.
