The Arizona Cardinals season ended early yet again in 2012. With not much more than pride to play for over the final few games, the Cardinals, like their fans, must have been looking ahead to the offseason for months.
There has been no shortage of moves thus far. Key players around the league have been cut or their contracts restructured.
One of the bigger events of the offseason is nearly upon us. The NFL Scouting Combine is right around the corner, and the discussion on whom the Cardinals should target will start to heat up.
Arizona general manager Steve Keim has been in the scouting industry for a while and will be no stranger to the events of the combine.
He will have a lot of decision-making to do between now and Feb. 23. From picking out players to watch to settling on questions for the interviews, his breaks will be few and far between over the next few weeks.
Here are seven scouting combine prospects who best fit the Arizona Cardinals' draft needs.
