The Arizona Cardinals have a bunch of team needs and only six picks in May’s NFL draft to try to fill them. Arizona has a pressing need at both offensive tackle positions. Bradley Sowell looks to be more of a backup at left tackle and right tackle Eric Winston is set to be a free agent in March.
The outside linebacker spot is going to be an area of focus as well. Arizona needs to find a young edge rusher who can bring pressure on opposing quarterbacks. It would be the perfect complement to the strength of the middle linebackers.
Tight end will be another area to watch. The Cardinals haven’t utilized the tight end much as a part of the offense. A solid tight end could open the field up for the wide receivers and running backs.
The cornerback position needs to be addressed as Arizona is scheduled to have three cornerbacks become free agents in a few weeks. The team needs to find a long-term starter opposite Patrick Peterson.
The kicker spot will also merit a couple glances in the later rounds. Jay Feely is set to be a free agent, and the Cardinals don’t have a kicker on the roster.
Arizona’s seventh-round pick went to Oakland as part of the Carson Palmer deal.
