Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 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 from recent NFL mock drafts for the Cardinals:
CBS Sports - Wilson (9/7)
16. Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina
14. Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina
You play in a high-flying division with a lot of great receivers. It's time to get the stopping power needed to compete.
Sporting News - Iyer (9/3)
15. Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina
SI - Hanson (8/31)
Smith-Nijgba would fit in nicely as a strong slot option for Kyler Murray. Though Smith-Njigba's No. 17 ranking on Dane's board might shock some because of his outstanding play in 2021, the NFL is all about traits. And despite his excellent hands and feel for coverages that project nicely into a productive NFL starter, his lack of overwhelming size and speed might hurt him in the eyes of a few teams. But pairing him with Murray would give Arizona's quarterback the type of player he trusts on every target. If Smith-Nijgba can show he can win from the outside, it'll be a bonus on top of what he's already able to do inside.
The Draft Network - Weissman (8/29)
At 6'3", Smith naturally wins leverage battles but will need to add weight (listed 235 pounds) to hold up in the NFL. Although there are some glaring issues with Smith's profile, I'd bank on the defensive tone-setter reaching new heights this season.
ESPN - Reid (8/25)
21. Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon
