A two round mock of players that likely won’t play in 2017 for the Arizona Cardinals.

Earlier today I brought you a mock draft I really like. Sure I am probably higher on Jabrill Peppers than most, but I think his style and ability would blend well in the Arizona Cardinals defense.

Then another mock draft dropped and I saw the juxtaposition of thoughts and wanted to share both .

Dan Kadar published his two round mock draft yesterday and it was… not one I am a fan of.

From Kadar:

13. Arizona Cardinals: Deshaun Watson, QB, ClemsonAt some point the Cardinals need to find a successor to Carson Palmer and get it with the national title winner.

45. Arizona Cardinals: Sidney Jones, CB, WashingtonJones has first-round talent but could slip to this point because of the injury he suffered at his pro day.

First off, I love both players, Watson is my QB1 in the draft, Jones was my CB2 pre-injury.

However, this would be a massive gut punch if the Cardinals took not only a QB who we all hope sits 2017, but a cornerback who is likely not going to see any action in 2017.

Two great names, two fits I'd heavily question on draft day.

What do you think?
