NFL Mock Draft 2013: With the seventh pick, the Cardinals select Tyler Wilson, Arkansas QB

SB Nation revealed its latest mock draft on Sunday, with Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson projected to go to the Cardinals.

SB Nation's Mocking The Draft published their latest mock draft on Monday morning. This draft has the Arizona Cardinals selecting QB Tyler Wilson out of Arkansas.

Wilson entered the 2012 season as one of the top QB prospects in the nation, but his star dimmed somewhat after a disappointing year at Arkansas. But the QB class is pretty thin this year, and the Cardinals may want to start the new coaching regime with a new QB to match.

Here's Dan Kador's reasoning for the pick:

Wilson is the draft's toughest quarterback, which he'll need to be behind Arizona's shoddy offensive line. Arizona has weapons at receiver but not a reliable player to get them the ball.

It's still too early to be making concrete predictions, but Wilson has a chance to reclaim his high preseason stock with strong showings at the Senior Bowl and Combine.

Another solid candidate at this spot is Alabama OG Chance Warmack. Warmack was the most dominant player on the field in the BCS Championship game and may be the safest pick in the entire class, particularly with Arizona's O-line woes.
