Arizona Cardinals NFL Draft Watch

As we get ever closer to the NFL draft speculation is running ramped. Will the Arizona Cardinals find their ‘quarterback of the future’? Will they address their need at linebacker or will they completely shock the league and take a wide receiver?

While we won’t know the answers to those questions until draft day, we decided to give you the next best thing, the Arizona Cardinals Draft Watch. We’ll round up all the rumors and let you know who we think is most likely to have his name read when the commissioner steps to the podium to announce the No. 5 pick.

Rank Player Reason
#1 Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU Mel Kiper’s latest draft has the Cardinals picking the CB.
Rank Player Reason
#2 Trading Down Rumors are heating up that the Cardinals will look to move down.
Rank Player Reason
#3 A.J. Green, WR, Georgia Most mock drafts have him going to the Bengals at No.4.
Rank Player Reason
#4 Aldon Smith, DE/OLB, Missouri Up until today he wasn’t even on the radar but Todd McShay is saying he’ll be the pick.
Rank Player Reason
#5 Blaine Gabbert, QB, University of Missouri ESPN NFL Analyst Merril Hoge told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf that Gabbert is a second or third round pick ‘at best’.
Rank Player Reason
#6 Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M It’s looking less and less likely that he’ll get past the Denver Broncos at No. 2.
Rank Player Reason
#7 Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina If the Cardinals decide it’s pass rusher or bust, Quinn may be the guy. An athletic freak, he’s a good bet to be available when the Cardinals are up.
Rank Player Reason
#8 Da’Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson Bowers says he’s ‘the best pass rusher in the draft.’ If Coach Whiz is on board and they’re confident he’s healthy, you never know.
Rank Player Reason
#9 Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama Not exactly a need and not expected to be available at five, Dareus would be an enticing option for the Cardinals — or some other team to trade up for.
Rank Player Reason
#10 Cam Newton, University of Auburn Even if the Cardinals wanted him chances are good he’ll be off the board by the time the Broncos pick at 2. Even if the Cardinals wanted him are the operative words.
