Despite many big-name tackles being available in free agency, the Cardinals neglected to bring one of them in. This may be a good thing, though, as a lineman can be had at a much cheaper rate in the draft.
Levi Brown returning from injury will provide a pretty big boost for the offensive line. Whether he is at guard or tackle, he will be an upgrade over what we saw last year.
I currently have him slated as the starting left tackle, but if right guard is not addressed in the draft, he should move there. This would mean Nate Potter would get the nod at left tackle.
One of the better linemen the Cardinals have had over the past couple of years has been Daryn Colledge. That is not saying much, though.
Unless major changes are made, he will continue to be the starting left guard. There is not much depth behind him either.
Let’s hope his play improves between a healthy Levi Brown and Lyle Sendlein.
With Rich Ohrnberger going to San Diego, Lyle Sendlein pretty much has the starting center job locked up.
After missing five games with an injury in 2012, the 29-year-old should be coming into camp with a bit of a chip on his shoulder.
He is another player that could potentially be replaced through the draft. With a few other needs to address, though, his job should be safe this year.
It baffles me that Arizona has not talked to any guards in free agency. There are several men out there who are not only upgrades over Adam Snyder, but affordable as well.
Snyder should not and hopefully will not be the starter come Week 1, but he is really the only option they have right now.
Senio Kelemete is still raw, but may be able to start somewhere a few years down the road. The new offensive line coaches will greatly benefit him.
Whether it is Jake Scott, Chance Warmack or even Larry Warford, someone must be brought in to replace Snyder.
Levi Brown, Bobby Massie and Nate Potter are currently the only three tackles on the roster. All three men are capable of starting, but a bit of depth behind them would not be a bad thing.
Based on who they have now, Brown and Massie are the starters. Nate Potter is right behind them and will be ready to fill in if there is an injury.
Although Massie struggled early on, he was great during the second half of the season. He was one of only two right tackles to not allow a sack over the final eight games.
If the Cardinals draft a tackle or Potter continues to improve, this team will have the position set for the next decade.
