2016 NFL Mock Draft 7.0: Surprise at Number Nine
30 of 34
The Cardinals had zero organic pass rush, yet were able to make it to the NFC Championship game. Now they have Chandler Jones on the roster and the opportunity to add a talent like Vernon Butler from Louisiana Tech.
Butler’s speed and athleticism make him a true pass rushing interior lineman who can play effectively and help Arizona get away from the over-blitzing system they relied on last season.
With the ability to get pressure on the quarterback without depleting their coverage, the Cardinals will create more turnovers and help the team get back to a top level of play.
