With less than two weeks until the 2021 NFL Draft the mock drafts are revving up.

Scenarios are what are interesting at this point and The Draft Network’s Trevor Sikkema came up with quite a scenario for the Arizona Cardinals in his newest three-round mock draft.

TRADE: CLE trades No. 26, No. 89 (3rd round) & No. 134 (4th round) to ARI for No. 16

26. Cardinals

Asante Samuel Jr.

CB, Florida State

TRADE: CLE trades No. 26, No. 89 (3rd round) & No. 134 (4th round) to ARI for No. 16

After trading back 10 spots with Cleveland, the Cardinals still get an outside cornerback who can start for them early on. This would be the best-case scenario for Arizona.

Interesting to move back ten spots and end up with a third and fourth round pick. I am a Samuel fan, so this would be a nice move, but here are the names that went between 16 and 26:

16. Jaelen Phillips
17. Micah Parsons
18. Azeez Ojulari
19. Jayson Oweh
20. Christian Darrisaw
21. Teven Jenkins
22. Zaven Collins
23. Caleb Farley
24. Liam Eichenberg
25. Trevon Moehrig

While adding a third rounder is nice, would you rather have a potential blue chip in Parsons?

49. Javonte Williams, RB - North Carolina
89. Dylan Moses, LB - Alabama

So, Samuel and Moses. What do you think of this scenario for the Cardinals? Would you be okay with it?
