It is full-on mock draft season so we will see projections from all over the Internet. The way things now look, cornerback is a popular selection for the Arizona Cardinals with the 16th overall pick in the draft.

In a new mock draft from CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson, the Cardinals land South Carolina corner Jaycee Horn.

Patrick Peterson, Dre Kirkpatrick and Johnathan Joseph will be free agents this spring, and Horn is a physical, athletic playmaking cornerback who would add depth at the position.

It is a major position of need. There is no doubting that. And based on the players still available at No. 16 in this mock draft, the selection makes sense.

A cornerback has a good chance of playing this season. A pass rusher would be able to contribute. An offensive lineman might sit for a year, depending on how things play out in training camp.

Horn feels like a good match, at least early in the draft process.
