NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Clemson vs Alabama Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With only 10 days until the 2017 NFL Draft we are on our way to having the Revenge of the Birds Big Board for the Arizona Cardinals.

Through seven votes, we have:

Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama
Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State
Jamal Adams, S, LSU
Patrick Mahomes II, QB, Texas Tech
Malik McDowell, DL, Michigan State

Honestly, I am pretty happy with the board so far.

We have one matchup that I can call already, likely, as Haason Reddick is trouncing Tre’Davious White in an elimination match.

Both of these matches end tonight at 11:59pm PST.

Today, we have two defensive backs who pretty much split the draft community.

Marlon Humphrey, CB, Michigan - With Humphrey you get one of the youngest, most athletic players at the corner position to ever come out. I do mean ever, as Humphrey is not even 21 years old yet.

What he could be is tantalizing, at 6-0 200lbs, Humphrey ran a 4.41 forty and turned in one of the fastest three cone times at the combine. He is a dynamic, young player, but he needs time.

Can the Cardinals afford to have two young, athletic corners who need time to learn to play the position in man coverage?

Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan - One of the most polarizing prospects in the draft, Peppers offers an amazing combination of positional flexibility with to go with a fantastic combination of size and speed.

Is he the answer to the question of who replaces players like Tony Jefferson and D.J. Swearinger in the back end of the defense?

Peppers would also be an immediate upgrade as a return man.

Who would you rather have at 13?
