Arizona Cardinals 2018 Mock Draft Tracker

The 2017 season is in the books.

For the Arizona Cardinals, a late-season surge during which they won four of their last six games, saw them finish the campaign at 8-8. This means general manager Steve Keim is the owner of the 15th overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, which gets underway April 26 in Arlington, Tex.

The Cardinals have many needs, and most of them are on the offensive side of the football. In five years under head coach Bruce Arians, Arizona failed to identify or draft their quarterback of the future. Now with Carson Palmer announcing his retirement and Drew Stanton, Blaine Gabbert and Matt Barkley all free agents, the need to do so has never been greater.

The Cardinals also need help on the offensive line and in the wide receiver corps. Larry Fitzgerald finished second in the league with 109 catches, but nobody else in the group stepped up or was able to stay healthy. Jaron Brown’s 31 receptions were the second-most for any Arizona wideout.

Over the next four months, we’ll keep you updated on all the projections and predictions for what the Cardinals might do with their first-round pick.
