NFL Draft 2012: Arizona Cardinals Might Need WR, RT

The Arizona Cardinals don't have too many pressing concerns in the 2012 NFL Draft, but they could shore things up at certain places. There's no real second wide receiver to really give Larry Fitzgerald multiple options. There's a need for another offensive tackle to protect their quarterback. With a mid-range first round pick, it's no guarantee they can find the players they want.

The Cardinals do have multiple things they would need, and they wouldn't necessarily have to be satisfied with a right tackle or a wide receiver. Other possibilities include a guard, a linebacker or a safety. Chad Reuter of NFL.com reports.

Re-signing Levi Brown to a more cap-friendly deal settled the left tackle spot, and snapping up 49ers starter Adam Snyder should plug a hole in the interior. But additional upgrades on the offensive line would help prevent Kolb from missing significant time again in 2012 due to injury. Early Doucet and Andre Roberts flash at times for the Cardinals, but finding a true No. 2 receiver to play across from Larry Fitzgerald would amp up the passing game.
