With the talk that the Chiefs are looking to a veteran passer, I changed my pick at the top from West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith to Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel. That led to Smith falling to the Arizona Cardinals in the seventh spot.
It could also lead to a team trading up to the second spot to get Smith, if they like him.
Check back after free agency starts. I think there will be changes in this mock. Until then, this is it:
7. Arizona Cardinals -- Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia -- They would be thrilled if he fell this far.
