2023 NFL Mock Draft Tracker: What will the Cardinals do with 3rd pick?
The Arizona Cardinals enter the offseason looking to rebuild around the pieces they have in house after a 4-13 finish.
Last season was nowhere near where the team wanted to be, but its record did net the Cardinals the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft for new general manager Monti Ossenfort to work with.
With the third pick, Arizona is in a prime spot to nab a cornerstone-type talent. It could also trade the pick to one of the handful of teams looking for their next franchise QB, gathering additional compensation in the process.
A lot can happen between now and Day 1 of the NFL Draft on April 27. Draft stocks will fluctuate, leaks will come out and team needs will undoubtedly change.
To help keep you up to date on what draft analysts across the country are thinking when it comes to the Cardinals, our annual Arizona Sports Mock Draft Tracker is up and running.
We’ll gather all the mock drafts from the sources you’ve grown to trust over the years and put them all in one place. The most recent mocks will appear at the top of the post, which will be updated frequently up until draft day.
