Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson’s mock draft correctly predicts six selections

Tony Jefferson, S
2015: 75 total tackles, 2 INT, 2 QB sacks, 5 PD, 4 TFL, 3 FF, 2 QB pressures, 1 QB hit
Few players have improved as much as Jefferson, who recorded his first two career interceptions and showed some solid coverage skills throughout the season. A big hitter who excels in the box, increased range and versatility makes the restricted free agent someone the Cardinals would be silly to let walk. However, they did extend the lowest tender offer they could, which makes you wonder how they feel about him.

Earlier this week Arizona Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson did his own 2016 NFL Mock Draft.

Jefferson admitted he’s just doing this for fun, but he dreams of being the next NFL draft expert.

So, how much of an expert was the Cardinals safety on Thursday night?

Well, like most mock draft experts, Jefferson struggled.

He got six picks right, including the San Francisco 49ers’ No. 7 overall selection of DeForest Buckner.

Jefferson did correctly predict a trade for the Cleveland Browns out of the No. 8 selection, but instead of the pick going to the New Orleans Saints, the selection was acquired by the Tennesee Titans.
