The Arizona Cardinals won 10 games last season and still missed the playoffs.
The defense is stout; how else can you explain Carson Palmer throwing four picks in a road game against the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona still winning? Palmer is 34 years old, so the team could look at a quarterback in the draft. But the Cardinals have only six picks. Other needs, including a receiver to pair with Larry Fitzgerald, could take precedence.
Needs: Pass rusher, receiver, free safety
