Arizona Cardinals needs post free agency

After the first wave of free agency, where do the Arizona Cardinals needs lie?

With the first wave of free agency in the rear view mirror, and the NFL Draft about a month away, what is next for the Arizona Cardinals in the upcoming weeks and months?

As all Cardinals fans know the Cardinals have lost a lot of key contributors: Calais Campbell, Tony Jefferson, Kevin Minter, Marcus Cooper among others, while they have only obtained a handful of older players: Karlos Dansby, Phil Dawson, Jarvis Jones and Antoine Bethea, while re-signing some of their own free agents.

The glaring hole that concerns most Cardinals fans is the lack of talented options at cornerback, young, healthy depth at WR and as always, offensive line.

The Cardinals have always been patient when it comes to the second wave of free agency and I don't think this will be different.

I believe after the draft they will sign older vets to one year deals to round out their roster.

What does that leave the Cardinals biggest needs heading into the draft?

The Cardinals could be looking at WR, CB, OL, LB and of course a QB for the post Palmer era.

It will be interesting to see how the Cardinals draft in their first 3 rounds and who will be there with the 13th, 45th, 77th.

With these first three rounds I believe the Cardinals could look for their number two CB, possibly a future number 1 WR, a QB of the future, not to mention looking at a starting guard or inside linebacker.

With a lot of holes to fill hopefully the Cardinals can draft some impact rookies and fill the rest of the roster with veterans who can help the Cardinals out in the positions of need after the draft.

So this leads to the question of who would you like the Cardinals to go after in the draft and/or the second wave of free agency?

Only time will tell what the Cardinals thoughts and plans are for the upcoming months.
