The Cardinals struggled to get viable play from their quarterbacks in 2012, but that wasn't their only offensive problem.
As a team, Arizona compiled a league-low 1,204 rushing yards at a 3.4 yards-per-carry clip, the worst average in football.
In an attempt to alleviate the ground-game issue, the Cardinals snagged free-agent Rashard Mendenhall.
At 5'11'' and a rocked-up 210 pounds with deceptive speed and agility, the former Pittsburgh Steelers runner has a feature-back skill set.
If Mendenhall can stay healthy, he should shoulder the lions share of the carries for the Cardinals.
Beyond him, Stepfan Taylor, a rugged, between-the-tackles back from Stanford was added in Round 5 of the draft.
Speedy scat back Andre Ellington was selected in Round 7, much later than many expected him to be picked.
With three new runners in the backfield, the Cardinals greatly improved the skill aspect of their running game.
