Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine on Thursday, Cardinals G.M. Steve Keim identified the secondary and offensive line as areas the club could be looking to address.
Keim indicated covering tight ends better than a season ago would be a priority, with “longer, athletic cover guys” the sort of players the Cardinals’ G.M. believes would help the team “address” that issue.
Of the offensive line, Keim noted that the club must “strengthen it and create more depth there.”
Overall, Keim said the Cardinals, whose 10-6 record was good for only third place in the ultra-tough NFC West, need to add more talent to take the next step.
“Moving forward, I felt like probably on each side of the ball, we were at least 2-3 players away from being an upper-echelon team,” Keim said. “Obviously, going to Seattle and beating them up there showed signs that we were headed in the right direction.”
