first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires My rankings are specifically for the Cardinals — so if you are worried why I have Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert ranked lower than most, it’s simply because his position doesn’t lend itself to the Cardinals’ needs as much as maybe FIU safety Jonathan Cyprien.Tier One1. Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama2. Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU3. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia4. Eric Fisher, LT, Central Michigan5. Luke Joeckel, LT, Texas A&M6. Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah7. Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia8. Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon9. Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina10. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYUThese are the ten players I would be comfortable with the Cardinals taking with the seventh pick in the draft. I know, no Lane Johnson, that’s unfortunately how I feel about Johnson.Tier Two11. Lane Johnson, LT, Oklahoma12. Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State13. Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia14. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee15. Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State16. Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International17. Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State18. Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame19.

Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern MississippiThese are guys I don’t know how they may fit with Arizona or where they’ll be drafted, but I like them as football players.They make plays, help their teams win games and most of them have a reason for why they are in this tier of players.These would be third or fourth round targets if I was running Cardinals draft.Tier Six68.
