For the Arizona Cardinals, one of the keys to the offseason will be to improve areas of weakness, while also getting their areas of strength to maintain or even take the next step.

That is why the offensive line will always be in play in the offseason, because while it is not the neon blinking light of the cornerback room, it can always be improved on.

Daniel Jeremiah took that into account when he dropped his second mock draft of the 2021 NFL Draft season.

Check it out:

16. Arizona Cardinals
Alijah Vera-Tucker · OG
School: USC | Year: Junior (RS)

Vera-Tucker has played tackle and guard, but I envision him sliding inside for the Cardinals. I’m sure USC offensive coordinator Graham Harrell would give his fellow former Texas Tech quarterback, Kliff Kingsbury, a glowing recommendation.

Vera-Tucker profiles as a possible All Pro in the mold of Marshal Yanda, who had a long, productive NFL career.

With positional versatility as the cherry on top.

What would you think of Vera-Tucker for the Cardinals?
