The Arizona Cardinals had a cavalcade of issues along the defensive front last season. With no Darius Philon, injuries to Zach Allen, Jonathan Bullard, Clinton McDonald, and Rodney Gunter, things did not go as planned.

The Cardinals have a great opportunity to get the front line corrected in free agency, but also in the 2020 NFL Draft.

At the Senior Bowl there are four really intriguing prospects that could fit the Arizona Cardinals.

Neville Gallimore, DT, Oklahoma - Gallimore is a player that has gotten better every single year and played his best in his final season with Oklahoma. Gallimore is a 6-2 304lbs interior defensive lineman who does just as well against the run as he does rushing the passer and could be a day two prospect that fits what the Cardinals need.

Leki Fotu, DT, Utah - If the Cardinals want to get back to being a top five run defense, one way to do that is finding an anchor in the middle. Fotu is that. 6-5 335lbs of run stopping dynamo. He won’t be a guy who does much against the passing game, but as a 50% snaps guy, who should be a great contributor for any team that drafts him.

Raekwon Davis, DT, Alabama - Another dominant interior lineman, Davis is 6-7 312lbs of dynamic. He already has played in a 34 defense and has more than the requisite strength and length to be an immediate contributor as a defensive end, who can slide inside on passing downs.

Javon Kinlaw - Kinlaw is the best interior lineman at the Senior Bowl and he has shown why already. A 6-5 315lbs condor of a man, Kinlaw has the size and has shown the athleticism to be an impact interior player.
