Arizona Cardinals get top offensive line prospect in Todd McShay's 2-Round 2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Combine - Day 3

Mock drafts are coming in hot right now.

The first wave of free agency has come and gone, now the experts are ramping up their drafts to try and play GM for every team.

One of the most well-known NFL Draft analyst is Todd McShay of ESPN.

On Tuesday he gave us his first two-round 2020 NFL Mock Draft of the year.

Of course, the Arizona Cardinals do not have a 2020 second round pick, they instead have an All Pro wide receiver in his prime on a nice cost controlled contract.

For their first round pick, McShay keeps it about the offense after a defense heavy free agency for the Arizona Cardinals.

8. Arizona Cardinals

Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa

Wide receiver had long been discussed here, but the addition of DeAndre Hopkins makes protecting quarterback Kyler Murray the key priority for this pick. The Cardinals just can’t allow Murray to be sacked as much as he was last season (50), and Wirfs is an extremely athletic big man with great potential.

Wirfs is one of the mainstays we see mocked to the Arizona Cardinals, and it make sense.

Wirfs is the best athlete of any draft eligible offensive lineman and profiles as an immediate impact tackle or guard in the NFL.

In fact, his profile puts him on footing with some of the best offensive linemen in the NFL.

With Wirfs, the Cardinals would have a young potential offensive tackle to bookend with D.J. Humphries or their own version of Brandon Scherff at guard.

What would you think of Wirfs in the first?
