Based on the current drop of the quarterback position seemingly from the first ten picks,  we have come up with a last minute mock for the Arizona Cardinals.

Round one: Blake Bortles Qb Central Florida: After all the talk of not going after a quarterback in the first round, it appears it will be first choice after Johnny Manziel is gone.  Cards can get the best QB  on the board that projects to be a good NFL ready quarterback.  The first round may not even have more than one or two QB’s come off the board, so this would be opportunity knocking.

Round Two: Austin Seferian-Jenkins TE ,Washignton: This may turn out to be the diamond in the rough and be the next Jimmy Grahm, the Cards brought in a veteran TE in John Carlson and still has not got production desired from Rob Housler. This pick could give them a weapon that makes this offense super in a few years.

Round three: Weston Richburg, C ,Colorado State: This is a good pick for depth at the center position for the future, Sendlein may not have to much longer to go with the team and this would cement the front line and the team would not have to use someone out of position.

Round Four: Will Sutton, DT, Arizona State: Here is a pick that would make since for the team, seeing that Darnell Dockett may just get his chance to prove us wrong about being loyal, or perhaps the team will part ways with him after this season and Sutton would be a perfect replacement.

Round Five: Shaquil Barrett, OLB, Colorado State: Well no need explain this pick , it would be for depth in case of injury or new one deal Larry Foote dent work out, or Kevin Minter does not progress.

Round six : DeRon Furr, SS, Fort Valley State:at this point in the draft it becomes a stretch on any prospect and these usually yeiild a luck pick or two and this one could add to the Cardinals depth for special teams or practice squad or perhaps in a few years replace an old vet.

Round seven: this one we know we will get correct, the Cardinals will not have a number seven pick, it was given away in the Carson Palmer trade.
