Arizona Cardinals 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 4.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Arizona Cardinals Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Arizona Cardinals from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Cardinals:

EDSFootball - Kevin Hanson (1/15)

12. Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State

While Jimmy Garoppolo has two years remaining on his contract, there is no guaranteed money left on his deal. Durability has been an issue with Garoppolo, but he has been little more than a "game manager" when on the field. Given the pandemic, NDSU played only one game in Lance's redshirt sophomore season, but he has an intriguing set of dual-threat skills. Over 17 career games, Lance has accounted for 48 touchdowns -- 30 passing and 18 rushing -- and thrown only one interception.

San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)

12. Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama

The 49ers currently don't have a corner under contract after this season. Surtain, a former five-star recruit, has NFL DNA (father was an All-Pro corner who played 11 seasons) and prototypical traits. He was recently named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year.

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/13)

12. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

Darrisaw reminds me a lot of Trent Williams, who is set to be a free agent after his one season in San Francisco.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Arizona Cardinals

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Arizona Cardinals rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 17 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Cardinals in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 14

Haason Reddick, edge: They have bigger free-agent names like Patrick Peterson, Kenyan Drake and Larry Fitzgerald, but given how well Reddick has played in the second half of the season, he gets the nod. Reddick is tied for third league-wide with 12.5 sacks. Reddick has been shuffled in and out of different roles during his time in Arizona, but for a team looking for a young pass rusher with upside, he could be really attractive.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 14

That was a major choke job against the 49ers. It's not a good look going into the playoffs. Kyler Murray is dinged up, but should play against the Rams.
