Arizona Cardinals 7-Round Mock Draft

Coming off a 10-6 season, the Arizona Cardinals are in better shape as a team than they've been since Kurt Warner retired. Going into the 2014-15 season, Arizona is great shape to improve -- that is, if they can nail the 2014 NFL Draft. With that in mind, here's a full seven-round mock draft for the Arizona Cardinals.

Note: The Cardinals do not possess a seventh-round pick.

Round One: Kony Ealy

Darnell Dockett isn’t getting any younger for the Cardinals, and with a pass rush that can only be described as questionable, it’s imperative that Arizona picks up a player with great pass-rushing potential. Kony Ealy is raw right now, but there is no denying his natural talent.

Round 2: Pierre Desir

Although the Cardinals have Patrick Patterson in the secondary, the other corner spot is a question mark. Pierre Desir out of Lindenwood is a raw prospect, but with his size and speed, he has some of the best potential in this draft.

Round 3: Shayne Skov

With the loss of Karlos Dansby in free agency, the Cardinals now have quite the hole to fill in the middle of their defense. Shayne Skov is an excellent tackler, and has the potential to become just as good as Dansby.

Round 4: Cyril Richardson

Although last year's first rounder Jonathan Cooper will be returning, the Cardinals still need help on the other side of the line. Cyril Richardson is a big, powerful lineman with loads of potential.

Round 5: Arthur Lynch

Although the Cardinals signed John Carlson in free agency, the team still needs help at the tight end position. Arthur Lynch has talent, and could help the Cardinals solidify the position.

Round 6: Michael Scholfield

The left tackle is set for the future, but the right side is a different story. Michael Schofield isn't a perfect prospect by any means, but he could become a solid right tackle.
