Even the Cardinals mock draft.
It comes at the tail end of their draft meetings, after they set their top 120 board. They’ll go through as many scenarios as they can to try and guesstimate what will happen (although in the end, it’s impossible to really know; as coach Ken Whisenhunt said Thursday, “the only time you really know is when (a team) makes that pick.”
“We go through a mock draft exercise every year and I think that it is a good exercise,” general manager Rod Graves said. “It is not totally worthless.”
“It is always interesting,” Whisenhunt said. “Listen, there is nothing wrong with information. There are enough people that don’t agree with what we do, or the calls that I make, so it is my chance to look at something you guys do and disagree with you. ‘God, that wasn’t a very good pick.’ Although I just don’t have the forum to put it out there that you do. So yeah, it’s interesting. I do (look at them). It is kind of a guilty pleasure for me to go and look at what different guys put for their picks or their analysis of the draft.”
