1. Offensive Line While the Arizona Cardinals obviously need a quarterback, it would be foolish to bring anyone in before the offensive line is fixed.  Former 1st-round pick Levi Brown returns from injury, but he has been playing out of position at left tackle for years. 2012 4th-round pick Bobby Massie is coming off a season in which he led the league with 13 sacks allowed and may be better suited to play guard. Brown may be the only lineman whose job is relatively safe. 2. Quarterback The Cardinals could be competitive with Kevin Kolb if the offensive talent, especially the line, were upgraded around him. But it has become clear that the quarterback of the future is not on the roster. Arizona may consider a quarterback in the first round, but the safer route would be wait until the second or third round and bring in a developmental prospect such as Ryan Nassib or Tyler Wilson. 3. Linebacker Daryl Washington has emerged as one of the league’s premier inside linebackers, but there should be a competition for the other three linebacker positions in training camp. Paris Lenon is an unrestricted free agent, and the Cardinals don’t have an adequate replacement on the roster. Bruce Arians and Todd Bowles’ decision about sticking with the 3-4 or shifting to a 4-3 scheme will have a significant impact on how the front office approaches the linebacker position this offseason.

  • It's time to give Larry Fitzgerald a chance to play with the second best wide-out in the NFL . Trade Larry to the Texans for J.J.
    This move would solidify the Cardinals defensive line , move Dockett to the outside , and send the Texans to the Super Bowl .
