Boise State linebacker and first round draft prospect Leighton Vander Esch is visiting the Arizona Cardinals, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Vander Esch is currently the No. 21 pick in ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr.’s latest NFL mock draft.

While he would be a reach at 15, Vander Esch could be a potential fit for Arizona if it trades down from the No. 15 spot.

The three-year Boise State linebacker had a career total of 188 tackles, five sacks and three interceptions.

Last season, Vander Esch had 141 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions and four forced fumbles.
