The Arizona Cardinals have the potential to select a high-level player with their second round pick.
One of the great things about going 3-13 and finishing last in the NFL is the draft picks. Heading into the 2019 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals will have three picks in the first 65 selections and a second round pick that sits at No. 33.
Projecting who the Cardinals might draft in the second round is tough, because, on draft night, nobody knows what will happen. A freakish player with red-flags like D.K. Metcalf may fall to the second, or a team may reach for a prospect that most view as a later pick. If history tells us anything, we can’t predict what will happen on draft night.
However, I’m willing to bet that one of these five mentioned players will be available when the Cardinals pick at No. 33. While each has been seen plenty of times mocked in the first, they’ve also seen plenty of mocks with them falling to the second. But, just to be sure, these five players rarely are shown being selected in the top half of the first.
But that doesn’t mean they are talented in their own rights. The Cardinals have the luxury of having top picks in a deep draft that realistically has 50 players with the potential to be first round picks. Now, let’s get to who they may select with their second selection.
