He picked a safety to the Cardinals?

Arizona Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson had some fun the other night answering 2016 NFL Draft questions. He said he would going to post a mock draft. He did and it is an interesting one. Check it out!

The one pick that did not fit was quarterback Connor Cook to the Broncos with the final pick of the first round.

Some are no-brainer picks. We all pretty much know Jared Goff is going number one to the Rams and Carson Wentz is going number two to the Eagles.

After that, he does a solid job. He projects another Browns trade down. He has the Saints moving up to number eight to select Joey Bosa. Cleveland lands quarterback Paxton Lynch with the 12th pick, giving the Browns yet another first round quarterback. Fun stuff!

Who does he project to the Cardinals? None other than Clemson safety T.J. Green.

He has popped up in recent mock drafts. He has the body and tested really well, but he is raw,. He is versatile. He also would potentially replace Jefferson, either taking playing time away from him this season and taking his roster spot after the season.

Jefferson's rationale?

It isn't the first time the Cardinals draft a guy at his position (Deone Bucannon two years ago). Jefferson welcomes the competition, as any good competitor will say.

He also knows Green is versatile and heard he could go in Round 1.

What do you think of Jefferson's mock?
