Latest Arizona Cardinals mock draft for 1st round after big free agency period
For the Arizona Cardinals latest mock draft, many factors will need to be considered.
Will Steve Keim stay put and try to pick the player that will be top on their draft board? Is there any chance that the team moves up to get one of the highly coveted corners in this years’ draft? Guys like Patrick Surtain II and Caleb Farley are some of the hyped draft prospects this year. Additionally, with the teams draft capital very limited this year (5 total picks) will Keim be willing to pick up the phone and trade back for the first time in his tenure?
All are viable options that would suit the team. No matter which option Keim chooses, he will be working with limited cap space. After releasing kicker Brett Maher, the team now has just around $2 million to work with headed into the draft and offseason/OTA’s. In such a make or break year for the team, this draft will be vital to sustain the success (hopefully) that the team has and continue to re-take the division into their own hands.
With Larry Fitzgerald most likely gone, the wide receiver position still has some holes that need to be addressed. Running back is still a need after the walking of Kenyan Drake. We’ll take a look at each of these scenarios and what position should be picked with each move.
