2013 NFL Mock Draft: Arizona Cardinals Select Jarvis Jones

The Arizona Cardinals tried to fix a lot of their most pressing issues on the offensive line and in the receiving game in the 2012 NFL Draft by selecting players like Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd, Ole Miss offensive tackle Bobby Massie, and Washington offensive guard Senio Kelemete. One place where they still need to shore things up is in the pass rushing game. The Cardinals have a decent front but not one that moves worlsd.

Ryan Van Bibber released his first mock for the 2013 NFL Draft, and it has the Cardinals drafting fairly high, meaning that improvement is probably not expected next season. With the fifth overall pick, they take a big-time pass rusher.

Jones looks like the top pure rushing linebacker in the draft. The Cardinals cannot pass on him.
