Here is 2014 NFL Mock Draft for the Arizona Cardinals, including a few surprise picks up top.
#20 – Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
The Cardinals have a major mess on their hands in the back end of their secondary, and I wouldn’t be shocked to see them address the need more than once. Pryor is a guy that I think will fall to them, and if that’s the case, this pick is a perfect one.
#52 – Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State
Outside of the top-50, I’d be very pleased with this pick if I was a Cardinals fan. Mewhort has tremendous talent, and I think he’ll be drafted before the second round ends. This helps Carson Palmer’s offense tremendously.
#84 – Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
Abbrederis is a playmaker, and the Cardinals need just that. There are other needs here, but Abbrederis seems to be a perfect fit. The Cardinals grabbed Ted Ginn this off-season, but they could use a legitimate deep-threat like the former Badger.
#120 – Jordan Zumwalt, LB, UCLA
With this pick, Arizona has a chance to establish themselves as the team with the best front-seven in the NFC. Zumwalt can compete for a starting job immediately.
#160 – Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
Carson Palmer can’t start forever, and Murray needs a red-shirt year anyway. This would be a perfect fit outside of the top-150. Arizona needs to think long-term. With this pick, they can do just that.
#196 – Brandon Linder, OG, Miami
The offensive line needs to continue to improve, and bringing in a guy like Linder can only help the chances of improvement. Linder is an underrated interior prospect that has the ability to improve with solid NFL coaching.
What do you think, Arizona Cardinals fans? Would you be happy with this draft?
