Arizona fills another need with their fourth round selection.

Glenn Andrews-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals have added a center to their team. Long expected to address the position in this year's NFL Draft, the team has made Missouri center Evan Boehm their pick in the fourth round.

Boehm was a four-year starter at center at Missouri. He is 6-2 and 302 pounds.

He made 52 starts in his college career. He is not considered a great athlete, but comes from a program with a history of producing NFL talent.He is the only player in team history to play in every game for four years as a starter, beginning as a true freshman. As with many other of the Cardinals' draft picks since Steve Keim became general manager, Boehm was a team captain.

Will he be a starter in 2016? That will be determined in camp. Arizona has A.Q. Shipley now as the starter.

So far in this draft the Cardinals now have selected:

Rd. 1: DT Robert Nkemdiche 
Rd. 3: CB Brandon Williams
Rd. 4: C Evan Boehm

They still have three picks remaining.

Round 5, pick 30 (167th overall)
Round 5, pick 33 (170th overall -- compensatory pick)
Round 6, pick 30 (205th overall)

What do you think of the pick?
