It is Monday which means another 2020 NFL Mock Draft to take a look at for the Arizona Cardinals.

To start this week, it is from Josh Norris of Rotoworld who has the protection of Kyler Murray as the biggest need for the team:

8. ARIZONA CARDINALS – OT JEDRICK WILLS, ALABAMA

Kyler Murray constantly elevated the players around him. Kliff Kingsbury’s running game elevated the blockers that performed it. The Cardinals No. 1 goal should be to identify and acquire players of equal talent to Kyler Murray. A rising tide lifts all boats.

While this receiver class has been termed historic, I’d argue the top of the tackle group is even more impressive. Wills immediately steps up on the right side and improves the quality of the line. The left and right side are of equal importance. Wills possesses the athleticism needed in Kliff’s offense.

We’ve talked about Jedrick Wills and his talent.

He is as close to a sure thing as you can get in the NFL Draft, with a high end comp of Trent Williams and a low end comp of Anthony Davis, he seems like a natural fit at right tackle for the Cardinals.

Getting Wills would mean that the Cardinals offensive line has 3/5 of the unit set for the next three seasons with D.J. Humphries, Justin Pugh and Wills.

The Cardinals get Wills after an interesting and unique top seven:

  1. Joe Burrow
  2. Tua Tagovailoa
  3. Chase Young
  4. Mekhi Becton
  5. Isaiah Simmons
  6. Justin Herbert
  7. Tristan Wirfs

What would you think of Wills with the eighth pick in this scenario?
