NFL Mock Draft 2012: The Arizona Cardinals Bolster Offensive Line

With the 13th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select Jonathan Martin, OT Stanford.

The offensive line is the Cardinals' greatest need. They would have considered other positions, but with Ingram off the board just before their pick, they go with the tackle they need. Martin protected Andrew Luck's blind side at Stanfoard and has long arms and good athleticism. There are concerns with his strength, but that will be easily taken care of while working with the Cardinals' strength and conditioning coach John Lott.

Bringing him in will allow the Cards to move Levi Brown back over to right tackle and overall strengthen a part of the Cardinals team that has been a problem for many years.

The Dallas Cowboys are now on the clock. Brad Denny will make the selection for them
