Welcome to the final week of draft coverage.

It starts with an impressive seven-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft from Chad Reuter of NFL.com, and the Arizona Cardinals get a nice haul.

What do you think?

16. Arizona Cardinals
Greg Newsome II
Northwestern · CB

On the rise throughout the pre-draft process, Newsome might end up being the third cornerback selected, due to Caleb Farley’s health concerns. Arizona should appreciate the Northwestern product’s excellent overall skill set, making him a viable replacement for the departed Patrick Peterson.

49. Arizona Cardinals
Rondale Moore
Purdue · WR

160. Arizona Cardinals
Caden Sterns
Texas · S

223. Arizona Cardinals
Jonathon Cooper
Ohio State · Edge

243. Arizona Cardinals
Larry Borom
Mizzou · OG

247. Arizona Cardinals
Nate McCrary
Saginaw Valley State · RB

I think the first two picks would be nice additions to the team from day one. Sterns is an elite athlete, but I don’t see the Cardinals going safety at all, but who knows.

Cooper is a good short area athlete with some pass rush ability, someone who could become a productive secondary pass rusher.

Borom is not someone I would draft just due to his over 8 second three-cone drill.

McCrary is a nice sized, small school running back who allegedly put up a sub 4.4 forty (4.37) and 4.42. At 6-0 213lbs that is moving.

Overall, this draft without a trade would be about the first two picks... So, what do you think?
