2013 NFL Draft order: Arizona Cardinals could go QB, OL

Several projections for the Arizona Cardinals have them taking a quarterback or an offensive lineman.

The Arizona Cardinals are projected to have the No. 7 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft after the team's victory against the Detroit Lions this week, and whether they end the season with that selection or not, they'll likely be looking to go with a quarterback or an offensive lineman.

Several mock drafts predict the Cardinals will give strong looks toward West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, who threw for 4,004 yards, 40 touchdowns and just six interceptions in his senior season. Arizona could also give USC Trojans' quarterback Matt Barkley a look at No. 7. Barkley threw for 3,273 yards, 36 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2012.

The Cardinals could also fix up the offensive line. Guard Chance Warmack out of Alabama could be gone by the Cardinals' No. 7 pick, but he's an option if they slip in the remaining games this year. Another prospect could be offensive tackle Luke Joeckel out of Texas A&M.
