NFL Mock Draft 2012: Arizona Cardinals Select Jonathan Martin From Stanford

The 2012 NFL Draft is just three months away and it seems like a new mock draft comes out every single day. While the Arizona Cardinals have multiple areas of their team that they would like to improve through the draft, one area that will certainly be addressed is the offensive line. Arizona has the No. 13 pick this year and the most recent update from Russ Lande of Sporting News has OT Jonathan Martin heading to Phoenix.

13. Arizona Cardinals: Jonathan Martin*, OT, Stanford. Arizona's offensive line has had big problems protecting the quarterback in recent seasons, and Martin would give them a strong left tackle to protect the blind side of their quarterback.

Martin was a standout with the Stanford Cardinal the last few seasons and operated in a pro-style offense as he protected Andrew Luck on a weekly basis. Blessed with incredible size, athleticism and a knowledge of the game, some have Martin projected as high as the top-10. If the Cardinals decide to look elsewhere with their first round pick, they could potentially add a wide receiver or pass rusher.
