Look for Cardinals to address RB, LB in 2nd day

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals could use a power running back and some help at linebacker, so expect them to look in that direction in the second day of the NFL draft.

Arizona used the No. 24 overall pick to select offensive tackle D.J. Humphries of Florida on Thursday. The Cardinals had the worst rushing statistics in the league last year, with Andre Ellington struggling with a season-long foot injury. The team needs someone who can hit hard between the tackles.

Arizona also could use some help with its outside pass rush. Inside linebacker also could use some depth, especially with the uncertainty surrounding Daryl Washington, who was suspended all of last season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
