Kyler Murray is back at the team facility for the first time since the end of last season. With a lot of questions up in the air about the quarterback's future with the franchise, this is a good first step to getting almost the whole team back to the field for the first game of the season.

Another player who will be absent from the team for a much more tragic reason will be cornerback Jeff Gladney, who passed away earlier in the week in a car crash at the age of 25. The Cardinals signed the second-year cornerback in March of this year to help fill the hole at CB that Arizona has been searching for, as shown by this mock draft's selection of Mississippi State's Emmanuel Forbes. With a great mix of size, speed and instincts with the ball in the air that earned him a first-round selection in 2020, Gladney was sure to compete for serious playing time for the 2022 season with the Cardinals' CB room as thin as any in the NFL right now.

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.
