Revenge of the Birds was on the air again, and it was to talk about the 2015 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals and the defensive side of the ball.

Seth Cox and I go through each position and discuss whether or not it will be a position of focus in this year's draft and then give some of the best players, our favorite players and some sleepers at each position.

It turns out near the start of the show I had some microphone issues, so I disappeared for a bit. Seth handled himself well, talking nose tackle and edge players.

What will be the positions of focus? We think it will be outside linebacker, cornerback and perhaps inside linebacker. Nose tackle could be in play and maybe defensive end, but safety seems like it won't happen.

The pass rushers who will be available we talked about and how they compare to guys in the league. I actually wonder about all the hate towards my Preston Smith selection for the SB Nation blogger mock. He compares to Justin Tuck.

At inside linebacker, we talk about Eric Kendricks, Benardrick Mckinney and several more. Seth gives a couple of names of guys who could be coverage guys later in the draft like Bryce Hager.

At cornerback, Seth feels like there will be a run early on and a run in the middle rounds as well. He isn't as high on Jalen Collins or Bryce Jones. I believe any cornerback they draft will have to sit most of 2015 before they have to make a contribution. That allows them to go after a guy who might be a little more raw.

The show is a long one -- nearly 90 minutes. Make sure to give yourself some time.
