With the Arizona Cardinals having addressed a number of needs in the 2021 NFL Free Agency, meaning what they need in the 2021 NFL Draft has... Well not changed at all.

Pro Football Focus did a three-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft and with the Cardinals no longer having a third round pick, what would PFF have them doing?

Let’s take a look:

16. ARIZONA CARDINALS — WR JAYLEN WADDLE, ALABAMA

Just like last year, when both Jerry Jeudy (Pick 15) and CeeDee Lamb (Pick 17) unbelievably fell out of the top 10, Smith and Waddle fall to 13 and 16, respectively. Waddle brings the explosive threat they always wanted Andy Isabella to be in the offense.

49. ARIZONA CARDINALS — CB KELVIN JOSEPH, KENTUCKY

Getting a talent like Waddle at 16 could be a huge steal for the Cardinals, where some pundits believe Waddle could go in the top 10.

Waddle would give the Cardinals an unbelievable receiving unit on paper.

Joseph is an interesting prospect because there are few with his physical abilities, but he has had some off the field issues.

If the Cardinals are assured those problems are behind him, then the potential of Joseph looks tantalizing in round two.

What would you think of this draft for the Cardinals?
