With the presumed addition of Carson Palmer; the Cardinals should not need to use a DP this year on a QB. If one such as the player below becomes available after the draft; the Cards may consider a young QB that can be put on the practice squad especially since Lindley is not eligable and is of questionable talent.
Sean Renfree Duke 6'3" 219 QB
Safety is an area of weakness where the Cardinals may look to strengthen. With both Rhodes and Wilson gone and the unknown that exists with Rashard as a 1st time starter as well as Bell's age; it will be a good idea. The Cards may find room in the draft and use one of the seven picks on a Safetey yet there are plenty of potential candidates outside the top 225 that they may get a look at.
Zeke Motta Notre Dame 6'2" 213 S
Jordan Kovacs Michingan 5'11" 205 S
Duke Williams Nevada 6'0" 190 S
Keelan Johnson ASU 6'0" 210 S
Tight end is an area of serious need; not talked about much. BA's offense is especially dependent on two TE sets and I wouldn't be too surprised to see us pick one, even as high as 38th overall. A single added TE may not be enough though. There may be an opportunity to bring in a couple of potential UFDA's to help fill the void.
Mychal Rivera Tennessee 6'3" 242 TE
Zach Sudfeld Nevada 6'6" 255 TE
When you look at the running back depth in this class; it's no wonder why the Cards have been unwilling to shell out the dough to bring the Hyphen back assuming a healthy Mendenhall and Williams. If a talented running back slips far in this draft; the Cards may take a shot in rounds 4 plus area. If not, there may be some potential options in the UDFA market.
Onterio McCalebb Auburn 5'10" 168 RB
Zac Stacy Vanderbilt 5'8" 216 RB
Rex Burkhead Nebraska 5'10" 214 RB
Robbie Rouse Fresno St 5'6" 190 RB
Theo Riddick Notre Dame 5'10" 201 RB
Spencer Ware LSU 5'10" 228 RB
I know everyone thinks the Cards Oline is fine as it stands today. Awake now ? Even with spending one or two DP's on the Oline, there may still be some opportunity in the UDFA market. Plenty of good NFL offensive lineman have come from the UDFA class and here is a couple that may be available.
Omoregie Uzzi Georgia Tech 6'3" 305 OG
Braxston Cave Notre Dame 6'3" 303 OC
The Cards have a strong receiving core. Spending a draftpick on a WR is highly unlikeley, but they may want to survey the UDFA market which might be slim. Building some depth at the position with Doucet gone is allways a plus.
Dan Buckner Arizona 6'3" 220 WRP
Finally an opportunity to get younger in the special teams group where all three of the Cards main special teams players are getting a little long in the tooth. Here are a few players outside the top 225 that may be available.
Quinn Sharp Oklahoma State 6'1" 190 P
Caleb Sturgis Florida 5'10" 185 PK
