With the 13th pick in the 2017 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select...
Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
The selection and write-up were made by Crawford_T:
For a team that made the NFC championship game in 2015, the Arizona Cardinals have quite a few holes. With the release of Michael Floyd last season, one of the most glaring is WR. On top of Floyd's release, the Cardinals longtime #1 WR, Larry Fitzgerald, is also getting older and has been hinting at retirement. After Fitzgerald, the Cardinals depth chart consists of John Brown (who struggles with injuries) and JJ Nelson. Both are nice complimentary players, but not a future #1 WR or even a #2.
Corey Davis does have what it takes to be a future #1 WR. Highly productive in college, Davis is a good route runner, has strong hands, and is a willing blocker. He can take the #2 spot in 2017, learning from Fitzgerald, before taking over as the #1 in 2018.
Pokorny: I know two quarterbacks are already off the board, but I think this is where Arizona has to take the best quarterback prospect they can get. Palmer still had a decent season last year, but it was a steep dropoff compared to what we’re accustom to and he’s 37 years of age. But it is true that Arizona needs a younger receiving talent too — their first two picks need to include QB, WR, but are they willing to wait for the QB until round two if there is a guy they covet?
The Philadelphia Eagles are up next, led by Gin_and_Tonic.
