Arizona continues to address offseason goals.

The Arizona Cardinals, who surprised many with the selection of quarterback Logan Thomas in the forth round, made their pick for the fifth round. They added depth to the defensive line, selecting defensive end Ed Stinson, who played at Alabama.

At 6-3, 287, he is a guy that can play any position along the defensive line, giving the team depth and versatility.

As has been the trend with this draft, the Cardinals have been taking players that fit the offseason goals they had set. General manager Steve Keim discussed wanting to upgrade at safety and tight end, get speed at receiver and add depth to the offensive and defensive line. They have gotten a safety, a tight end, a fast receiver, a quarterback, a pass rusher and now a defensive lineman.

In 2013, he had 41 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and two tackles for losses.

Arizona has one pick remaining in the draft -- the 196th pick overall, the 20th pick in the sixth round.
