NFL Draft Picks Who Would Be Instant Starters for Arizona Cardinals
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
Will Luke Joeckel fall into the Arizona Cardinals' lap?

The 2013 NFL draft is deep with talent. That means the Arizona Cardinals should be able to improve anywhere from two to four positions from this rookie class alone.

Arizona’s depth-chart needs are no secret: left tackle, right guard, quarterback and pass-rusher.

Some starting positions, however, won't be able to be filled in this draft. The class of quarterbacks is deep only in number. The top-end talent just is not there. Will there be teams that reach in the first round for one of these quarterbacks?

Absolutely. Teams feel obligated to do so based on the high-octane, pass-heavy offenses that are in vogue. But it does not always work out the way franchises hope.

Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden, Blaine Gabbert and Tim Tebow all were first-round picks who should have been taken later in the draft.

What rookies will start from Day 1 for the Cardinals? Some answers may surprise you.
