As the 2020 NFL season goes into the rear view mirror, we finally have the full idea of what the 2021 NFL Draft will look like.
That means a ton of new 2021 NFL Mock Drafts will be dropping in the next several days. We start with a new Pro Football Focus Mock Draft that has the Arizona Cardinals getting help on the offensive line.
16. ARIZONA CARDINALS: T CHRISTIAN DARRISAW, VIRGINIA TECH
With the top-three receivers and Kyle Pitts off the board, the Cardinals can go a number of different ways. Darrisaw could not only protect their franchise quarterback, but he can also take their running game to the next level given his 94.5 run-blocking grade in 2019. With Kelvin Beachum on a one-year deal and never being much a run-blocker, this could be the best long-term option.
I have talked about Christian Darrisaw and I am always good with beefing up the offensive line. I just want to make sure there is a plan in place for Josh Jones moving forward and we don’t see another day two draft pick fail.
Darrisaw is a people mover. He is massive and he moves well. He would be a great bookend opposite D.J. Humphries and give the Cardinals much needed flexibility in the coming season when they have to make a decision on Humphries.
Again, as long as this is to play with Josh Jones and not to play instead of Jones, I like beefing up the offensive line.
