Every time you see 'mock draft,' you have to click. Here's seven rounds worth of projections right before the draft begins.

Josh Cribbs is scheduled to re-take a physical with the Arizona Cardinals “in a few weeks,” a source told The Cardinals are expected to sign Cribbs if satisfied with the condition of his surgically repaired knee.

Cribbs initially met with the Cardinals in mid-March shortly after the free-agent signing period opened. He was still recovering from a torn meniscus after completing his eighth NFL season with the Cleveland Browns.

Cribbs, 29, was named to the NFL’s All-Decade team in the 2000s as a kickoff returner and is the all-time leader in Browns history in that role. Cribbs also is tied for the NFL all-time record in kickoff returns for touchdowns, with eight.

The Cardinals already upgraded their special-teams unit in the offseason with the free-agent signing of Washington Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander. He was the NFC’s Pro Bowl selection on special teams last season and finished with an NFL-high 19 special teams tackles during the 2012 campaign.

If signed, Cribbs also would be expected to play a role on offense at wide receiver. He was used in multiple roles by the Browns.
