The latest edition of the Cincy Jungle Writer's Mock Draft is here. Be sure to keep up with all of the picks in a out stream page.
Next up are the Arizona Cardinals, who barely missed the playoffs after winning 10 games in 2013. Who will they take with their first pick to help them ascend to the level of the Seahawks and 49ers atop the AFC West?
Jason: Cardinals take C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
With the departure of Karlos Dansby, the cards have a big hole in the middle they need to fill, and CJ Mosley is the man to fill it.
Mosley was arguably the best LB in college football in 2013, as he won the Butkus Award (nation's top linebacker) and was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year. He was Alabama's leading tackler for the second consecutive season, racking up 108 stops with five pass breakups and a forced fumble.
He can play any of the four LB spots in the Cards' 3-4 defense, and could be a darkhorse candidate for the NFL Rookie of the Year Award.
Anthony: BROWNS TRADE with Cardinals (formerly pick #26) to take Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
The Browns were patient at the first part of the draft in bypassing a quarterback in favor of grabbing Watkins, but with Bridgewater taking a tumble, they leap at the chance to get him and trade up to get him.
Bridgewater has taken hits to his stock of late, but he is talented. The Browns need a quarterback of some kind to develop behind Brian Hoyer and Bridgewater is that guy. With Watkins, Bridgewater, Josh Gordon, Jordan Cameron and Andrew Hawkins, the Browns could end up being a very scary team in the future.
Mickey: Cardinals take Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
If Lewan falls this far the Cardinals would be insane to pass on him. Lewan is a huge lineman that has been described as a leader and nasty in his blocks. Looks to be able to handle the transition to tackle in the NFL easily. The Cardinals have many pieces in place to be competitive, but need better line play and Lewan would make a lot of sense here.
