For the Arizona Cardinals they have addressed some of their needs in free agency, but many of them are still the same.

When you look at the Cardinals offseason, it shows they still have immediate needs, but also long-term needs that were just addressed at center, defensive line and wide receiver two.

So, how would you draft now after week one of free agency?

Here's a new 2021 NFL Mock Draft for the Arizona Cardinals.

16. Trade down to 24 with Pittsburgh Steelers for 24 and 87 for rights to draft Trey Lance, QB North Dakota State

24. Jayson Oweh, Edge Penn State

Adding a third round pick back and getting perhaps the best edge in the class. Oweh is a freak of nature physically and will give the Cardinals a chance to work him in slowly.

49. Terrace Marshall Jr, WR, LSU

Getting an A.J. Green replacement ready and in the wings. Marshall has a chance to be a dominant wide receiver one type athletically, but profiles nicely as a great complimentary player to Hopkins.

87. Thomas Graham Jr., CB, Oregon

Graham has some questions about his recovery speed, but he is feisty, competitive and has some nasty to his game. He's a zone corner outside with ability to play immediately.

The top three corners were gone at 16, so a trade down felt like an easy call, especially when the Steelers were willing to give up a third round pick.

My choices at 24: Oweh, Rousseau, Ojulari, Phillips, Elijah Moore, Asante Samuel Jr, and Zaven Collins.

Oweh and Collins is what it came down too and I preferred Oweh's upside on the edge.

What would you have done?
