Happy Monday one and all.

With many people off today or those battling the winter storms we can hopefully give you a little bit of a break to talk Arizona Cardinals.

Pro Football Focus dropped a new 2021 NFL Mock Draft and it would be a great one for the Arizona Cardinals.

Check it out:

16. ARIZONA CARDINALS: CB PATRICK SURTAIN II, ALABAMA

Surtain is a big, instinctive outside cornerback prospect that should push Farley for CB1 in the 2021 class by the time April comes around. Surtain leads all college cornerbacks with at least 400 defensive snaps played in PFF grade (87.0) in 2020.

Surtain would give the Cardinals an alpha in the cornerback room and while he’ll definitely have some growing pains, he could be the perfect guy to take the mantle from Patrick Peterson.

Here were the first 15 picks:

  1. Trevor Lawrence
  2. Zach Wilson
  3. Justin Fields to Philadelphia Eagles
  4. Trey Lance
  5. Penei Sewell
  6. Ja’Marr Chase to Miami Dolphins
  7. Micah Parsons
  8. Kyle Pitts
  9. Kwity Paye
  10. Caleb Farley
  11. Jaylen Waddle
  12. DeVonta Smith
  13. Rashawn Slater
  14. Christian Darrisaw
  15. Christian Barmore
