2016 NFL mock draft: Ryan Kelly is favorite pick for Arizona Cardinals

New, comments

The tide has turned from pass rusher to quarterback.

As we are still heavily in draft season, we share a lot of mock drafts. But we can't get to all of them. There are just too many.

We do have a page that keeps track of a ton of them and graphs the picks for each team.

A while back, the favorite was a pass rusher. With the Cardinals trading for Chandler Jones, things have changed. Now the most common pick for Arizona at No. 29 is an offensive lineman.

In more than 20 percent of mock drafts, the leader is still "other," but after that, Alabama center Ryan Kelly leads the way at nearly 17 percent.

It would be a logical pick.

The Cardinals have addressed every position on the offensive line with a big contract or a first round pick except center.

After Kelly, the next most commonly selected player is defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche. He is the pick 10 percent of the time.

After Nkemdiche, it is Leonard Floyd. In all, 13 different players appear, including one I haven't even heard of.

Of all those picks, who would be your favorite?
