2014 NFL Draft: Arizona Cardinals appear likely to draft a receiver in middle rounds

Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

The team wants more speed.

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim addressed the media on Thursday, talking about the NFL Draft that starts next Thursday. He talked about the depth that will be available at many positions.

"This year we feel pretty good about the tackle draft, obviously," he said. "There's a lot of depth at receiver. We've talked about several of the receivers that are intriguing prospects in the middle rounds that not only have the measurables, but have that element of speed that we're looking for, so that's a position we're excited about."

Yes, the Cards already signed Ted Ginn to a three-year contract, but if there is one thing that head coach Bruce Arians is always looking for, it is a speedy receiver who can stretch the field.

Based on some research that Seth Cox did before the NFL Combine, some players that match the types of receivers that Bruce Arians' teams have drafted include these names, all who will be mid-round, late-round or might even go undrafted.

They include:

Some fans and analysts are also intrigued by Bruce Ellington. What do you think of these players? Are there other middle round prospects you would like to see the Cardinals target or even actually take next week?
