Kyle @marblekyle started these rankings on Twitter. So often these rankings come down to apples and oranges, based on how the prospects fit teams’ systems and their positional photo-types.

Conclusion:

  • Any of the top 5 here is worthy of the #16 pick.
  • Bateman, R. Moore, Toney and E. Moore would make sense if the Cardinals trade down into the 20s or early 30s.
  • Would be a bonus to see R. Moore, Toney or E. Moore at #49.
  • Wallace and Eskridge are Round 3 or 4 picks.

Conclusion:

  • Harris and Etienne are worthy of the #16 pick, although one or both might be available if the Cardinals trade down into the 20s. Williams is worthy of a pick in the 20s.
  • The drop-off after the first 3 is such that it’s possible the next RB taken could be in Round 4.
  • It’s possible that Felton, Patterson, Hawkins and Herbert will be available at pick #160 (R5).

Conclusion:

  • Any of the top 5 are worthy of the #16 pick or a pick in the 20s if the Cardinals trade down.
  • It’s possible that all of the cover men 6-10 on this list could be available for the Cardinals at pick #49.
  • Any of these top 10 cover men would be an excellent addition. Many of them have impressive versatility.

Conclusion:

  • Any of the top 4 are worthy of the #16 pick.
  • Bolton, Ojulari, Owusu-Karamoah and Oweh would be good picks in the 20s or early 30s.
  • Werner and Davis are likely Round 3 picks.
