2015 NFL Draft: Arizona Cardinals big board and player grades

A look at how I would rank the players on the Arizona Cardinals Big Board

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

First, this is not a rankings list, there are ZERO first or second round wide receivers for me on the Cardinals big board, so that right there shows you this is not an overall talent look, so please understand that before I have to hear about no Kevin White or Amari Cooper anywhere.

If you think the Cardinals would draft a WR in round one or two, I can get on board with that, but this is my GUESS at what I think the Cardinals board would and should look like.

Also, this started out being in order, but then I realized that it was too hard to keep all my rankings straight.

There are definitely names left off and after two hours of trying to complete the board and screwing up, I could have erased or lost a name, but who knows. There are also guys I like, Duke Johnson, that I have higher grades on, but because I am trying to rank them for the Cardinals specifically, I wouldn't want to draft Duke in round one, but if he was available in round two, I think he would make sense.

Any questions please feel free to get to me on Twitter @SCoxFB or in the comments.

The idea behind the "Horizontal Board" is that it allows for the Cardinals and fans to look at names at the same time while also looking at needs while assessing what talent is left on the board.

Round one OT's for example are all players I think could come in and beat out Bobby Massie on day one, while those in round two and three I know are more about the future.

Hope that makes sense, because I am not sure it does.

Also, I have more names that will come along as the process plays out.
