2016 NFL Draft best available players: Could the Arizona Cardinals try to move up on Day 2?

New, comments

No second round pick means a lot of waiting.

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Day 2 of the 2016 NFL Draft is here, but the Arizona Cardinals will have to wait around until the end of the third round. They traded away their second round pick to the New England Patriots as part of a deal to acquire pass rusher Chandler Jones. Their next pick is not until the 92nd selection comes up.

Will the Cardinals trade up? If they want to get into the second round, it would cost a lot. The rumors of Michael Floyd being trade bait might come in here. Chances are if they wanted to move up into the second, they would have to give up Floyd and their third round pick.

Who could the team be targeting? Will they go with a center? A cornerback? A quarterback? Will they just stand pat?

Take a look at the best remaining players, based on SB Nation's Dan Kadar's big board.
