TEMPE, Ariz. -- With one week left in the regular season and still a lot to be determined in the playoff picture, there’s one area that’s starting to come into focus: the draft order.
If the season ended after Week 16, the Arizona Cardinals would select 25th in the first round.
The last time Arizona chose that high was in 2010 when it selected nose tackle Dan Williams out of Tennessee. The Cardinals have never chosen at 25th in the first round, according to the team’s media guide.
According to NFL draft Insider Todd McShay’s Mock Draft 1.0, he has Virginia tackle Morgan Moses going to the Cardinals. Moses has experience at both tackle positions, which would come in handy for Arizona, depending on if right tackle Eric Winston returns, which is unlikely, and if the Cardinals stick with Bradley Sowell at left tackle. Free agency will determine the latter.
