The Arizona Cardinals sit with the 16th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and we have seen a number of scenarios for them.

One we have not seen quite yet is the Cardinals taking an interior offensive linemen.

Sporting News changed that with their newest 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

16. Arizona Cardinals (8-8)

Alijah Vera-Tucker, G, USC (6-4, 300 pounds)

The Cardinals could use an interior line boost for Kyler Murray and their run-heavy attack. Vera-Tucker has separated from Ohio State’s now injured Wyatt Davis as the best such prospect in this class, as he can round out into a complete blocker, also capable of playing outside, with more polish.

I know this is a lot to expect, but if this was to happen are the Cardinals cutting Justin Pugh? Are they expecting Vera-Tucker, a very good prospect to sit behind Pugh and Justin Murray?

What are your thoughts on Vera-Tucker or Wyatt Davis and what would you expect the corresponding move to be?
