2012 NFL Draft Results: With Floyd Take In 1st Round, Expect OL Focus

The Arizona Cardinals came in to the draft with two big priorities and one lesser priority. The two biggest positions to address were the offensive line -- specifically at tackle -- and receiver. There is some need to find more pass rushing talent, but not as urgent as the other two.

With the selection of Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd, the Cardinals potentially took care of the receiver need, selecting a guy that Larry Fitzgerald knows personally and endorsed entering the draft. They also found a player that reminds many of Anquan Boldin.

With a receiver taken and young receivers Andre Roberts and DeMarco Sampson already in the fold, don't expect to see another one taken on Friday or Saturday.

What we can probably see is a lineman taken on Friday with the team's third round pick. It would not be surprising to see a second lineman taken on Saturday as well.

Somewhere along the line, there will likely be a pass rusher taken as well and perhaps a safety, as neither Adrian Wilson nor Kerry Rhodes are getting younger.

Where do you see the Cardinals going in the third round?
