Insider's NFL and draft experts have teamed up to give a full breakdown of all that should be considered for each team as it enters the 2013 NFL draft. Here we look at the Arizona Cardinals.

Major need: This entire offensive line needs a makeover to give whoever is at QB a chance to make plays and cut down on the 58 sacks the unit gave up last season (and to give the worst run game in the NFL a chance to be productive). Injuries were part of the problem, but individual deficiencies are really apparent. The Cardinals could use a new starting offensive tackle and an upgrade at all three interior positions.
