2023 NFL Mock Draft: Expert Picks & Analysis Post-Combine

3. Arizona Cardinals: DE Tyree Wilson — Texas Tech

After missing out on the postseason, the Cardinals could be looking at major changes in the coming months. In addition to replacing Steve Keim at General Manager, Arizona hired Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon to run the ream. Rebuilding an aging and stale roster is also of importance.

Needless to say, the Cardinals need talent everywhere — particularly on the defensive side of the ball. While Will Anderson had been pegged here for months, Tyree Wilson is rising on draft boards. He’s a freak, fast-twitch athlete in the mold of a Chase Young or Nick Bosa. The Cardinals desperately need to add some pop off the edge. Also — don’t be shocked if this pick is flipped somewhere else to a franchise wanting to move up and select a quarterback.
