A flair for the dramatics.

After cruising through the Titans in week 1 on the back of Chandler Jones' five-sack game, the Cardinals scraped by to their second win of the season on a comeback effort capped off by a missed game-winning field goal by the Vikings. I love the classics.


Despite his nearly record-setting start, Jones and the Cardinals remain at odds with the premier pass rusher wanting more than the one-year deal the team is offering. Right now, Jones holds all the leverage with his performance, and a time will come where Steve Keim will have no other choice but to cough up the dough for Jones, and it will be well worth it.

Cards go on the road against the 0-2 Jaguars to have a chance for their first 3-0 start since 2015. They won't need anything special to get it done, but they will need to stay out of their own way.

For this mock draft, we're sticking with Josh Jobe because the loss of Malcolm Butler hurts - whether it shows yet or now - and Jobe has shown early this season that he's ready to step in at the next level and contribute early.

CARDINALS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
