NFL Mock Draft 2012: Arizona Cardinals Select Kendall Wright

The Arizona Cardinals are looking to get better and better as a team. However, many of the blue-chip players who are likely to be sure-fire contributors will probably be gone by the time the draft board rolls to the 13th pick. They won't have as much flexibility with their draft pick

Pick 256 had this board from Mocking The Draft, and he has the Cardinals dipping into the well and finding a partner in crime for Larry Fitzgerald. Fitz is beastly on his own, but having another player who's as capable as he is could be a step in the right direction for the team. Here is the explanation from Pick 256 about why Kendall Wright of the Baylor Bears is the perfect person to fit that description.

The Cardinals have been looking for a #2 WR since trading Anquan Boldin. Early Doucet is a free agent and might not return and Andre Roberts probably isn't the answer. The fleet of foot Wright has been rising up draft boards in the wake of an excellent 2011 season and would make an excellent option opposite Larry Fitzgerald.
