I was having a nice, calm day in my neighborhood. I’m taking my dog for a walk when my buddy texts me “Hopkins and a fourth to the Cardinals for David Johnson and a second!” My brain would not allow me to believe this was DeAndre Hopkins, so my first thought was actually Trey Hopkins, the Bengals’ center. My initial thoughts were that this was a massive overpay on Arizona’s end for a mediocre offensive lineman. Then I went on Twitter.
It’s been too long since I’ve done a mock draft! With the combine approaching, it is most certainly mock draft season. I’m back with a three-round draft this time. This is just the first round. Rounds two and three will be out later this week either Friday or Saturday. I tried to keep the trades at a minimum for this go around because my post-combine draft will be a bit more crazy.

The first year of the Kliff Kingsbury/Kyler Murray experience went about as well as you could expect. There were some flashes but there was an abundance of growing pains as well. The Cardinals were dreadful on defense and their offensive line was still abysmal. The team has the eighth pick in the first round and six picks overall.

The 2019 season was, for the most part, disappointing for Arizona Cardinals fans as the team found themselves tied with the Detroit Lions in week one leading to a 3-7-1 record going into their week 12 bye.

Kliff Kingsbury’s offense started to settle in and the team finished the year at a positive 5-10-1 record.
The football regular season is all but over. Welcome to the final week of the regular season where things get preseason-ish and downright wacky. The plan needs to be attacking players who we feel will have solidified roles, as many teams will be resting its starters for the postseason, or seeing what they have out of some of their youngsters for next year.

It’s early April of 2018, a few weeks before the NFL draft. Analysts are going back and forth between who the Browns should take with the first overall pick. Mocks have the Browns taking Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, and Baker Mayfield. Darnold and Rosen are the first two on most boards. With Baker having “character” concerns, Allen having severe accuracy problems, and Lamar Jackson haters aplenty, Darnold and Rosen seemed like the two safest bets at the quarterback position.
