Heading into the NFL Draft there are a number of common names mock drafts have the Arizona Cardinals picking. With the Cardinals having the 13th pick in this year's NFL Draft, there are a lot of names, let’s take a look at four that have been fairly common, just to get to know them a little more.
Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
His 6'3 frame is what Arizona will be looking for in a big body WR and future number 1 wide out for the Cardinals if drafted. He was a stud down the stretch for Clemson in the National Championship game. One of the knocks on him is he drops too many passes. Arizona can definitely use him in the passing games, especially if Fitzgerald retires. This could be the pick if he is still there.
DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame
Deshone is a 6'4 230 pound QB that has played well at times for Notre Dame. Scouts love Kizer's upside and that is exactly what is shooting him up draft boards. Inconsistent play is what makes Kizer a true question mark. This past year his completion percentage was 58.7% down from the 62.9% the year before.
Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
Trubisky was one of the more accurate QBs in college football this past year with a completion percentage of 68%. He played well all year and lead North Carolina to a very nice season. People have said his lack of experience could hurt him in the NFL.
Editor’s Note: This just came out on Trubisky this week. Wonder if it is true, if it would remove him from consideration for the Arizona Cardinals.
Mayock on NFLN said scouts told him that Mitch Trubisky will measure a little over 6'1 in Indy, if that concerns you.— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) January 26, 2017
Marshon Lattimore, CB Ohio State
Marshon was great for Ohio State this past year and has been one of the top names of CB to go in the first round. Marshon has good speed and ball skills, but has been plagued by injuries.
I personally do not think the Cardinals should draft a QB in the first round. This is not a great draft class for quarterbacks. The Cardinals should not overvalue a QB and select him at 13. I believe 2nd or even the 3rd round is a good place to look at a QB, if there is one that fits the system.
I believe a cornerback opposite of Patrick Peterson is a need or another wide receiver. If Larry retires selecting a WR with their first round pick makes sense as they will need a young player to build with for the future.
Who knows what way the Cardinals go with the combine and free agency, coming up things can and will change.
Which of these four prospects would you like to see?
