10 – Mike Gesicki, TE (Dolphins)
Gesicki’s production waned in 2022. And if the Arizona Cardinals move Zach Ertz, Gesicki is another tight end they could consider. His skills also don’t mesh well with Mike McDaniel’s system, noted by his drop off from 73 to just 32 receptions this season, so he will be in a new uniform next year. Gesicki, if he signs in the desert, could form multiple two tight end sets with Trey McBride.
11 – Jawaan Taylor, T (Jaguars)
Once again, if the Cardinals are looking to upgrade protection around Kyler Murray, Jawaan Taylor makes for an excellent fit. Like Ben Powers, he isn’t a run blocker, but Taylor is a remarkable pass blocker who could slide in at right tackle while Josh Jones can play guard.
12 – Germaine Pratt, LB (Bengals)
While the Arizona Cardinals have two up and coming linebackers in Isaiah Simmons and Zaven Collins, Simmons plays in multiple positions, most notably, in the secondary. Signing Pratt would free Simmons even more.
And with a coverage grade of 90.1 per PFF, expect Pratt to immediately upgrade the Cardinals pass defense across the middle. He is also a sure tackler, with a missed tackle rate of just 5.9%.
