As we get closer to the 2020 NFL Draft every analyst has their own rankings and ideals of what teams need.

Lance Zierlein and Chad Reuter of NFL.com gave two ideal picks for each team and here is what they had with the Arizona Cardinals.

ARIZONA CARDINALS

» Round 1: No. 8 overall — Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

» Round 3: No. 72 — Zack Moss, RB, Utah

Re-signing former first-round pick D.J. Humphries secured the left tackle spot for the Cardinals. Picking Thomas (or Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs if he’s available) gives Kyler Murray a worthy strong-side bookend, as the former Georgia Bulldog played right tackle his true freshman season. With their second-round pick dealt away in the DeAndre Hopkins trade, the Cards will have to wait until the third round to make their next selection. Look for them to possibly take a power back like Moss to complement the transition tagged Kenyan Drake.

Thomas is a nice player, but his upside may be a bit lower than other tackles in the draft.

While Moss is a consistent runner with good power, but is a guy who has had knee concerns and didn’t test well at the combine.

While it would be a solid draft, it would likely be two players who we don’t see a lot of production from in year one for the Cardinals.
