Arizona Cardinals Draft Needs: Cornerback Preview

The Arizona Cardinals have a lot of needs come NFL Draft time, one of them being in the defensive secondary at the cornerback position.  Here is a look at what they have now and why they need help at the position.

What they have now:  Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Greg Toler, Trumaine McBride, A.J. Jefferson, Marshay Green, Michael Adams

Why they need change and/or addition: Well other than Patrick Peterson from LSU is available, Rodgers-Cromartie, Toler, McBride, and Adams are as about as inconsistent as they come.  They all look spectacular on one play and like UFL rejects the next.  Granted Rodgers-Cromartie and Toler have had their moments, but they need to be pushed in preseason.  Adams definitely has shown improvement and is an asset on special teams, however he got burned quite a bit in 2010.

Possible top draftees: Patrick Peterson, LSU, Prince Amukamara, Nebraska

What will happen: The quarterback position will be the tell tale.  All depends on what is available at number five.  If Blaine Gabbert is still there, I can't imagine them passing on him.  However, these are the Cardinals and anything can happen.
