Kyle’s Pick: Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn
The Cardinals need to bolster their outside linebackers in an attempt to pressure Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson. Dee Ford has shown that he is an explosive pass rusher who is relentless in his disruption.

Dan’s Pick: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
I may have Manziel fall later in the first round than most, but I’m just not sold that Manziel’s skills will translate well to the NFL. The Cardinals may take a chance on Manziel and let him learn and develop behind Carson Palmer.
