Draft offensive line

This is always a hit or miss situation.  The fact we are in year 5 of the D.J. Humphries era at tackle and we still have debates whether he should still be a Cardinal or not is quite frankly frustrating and ridiculous.

His holding penalties have become tiresome.  At the same time he does show moments why the Cardinals drafted him.  No consistency.

Overall though, there is little depth on the line.  The Cardinals need to build that through the draft.  Getting veteran help has been hit or miss as well.

The veterans can’t stay healthy enough.  Justin Pugh has been good when he has played but has had a couple of injuries.  What about guys like Marcus Gilbert and Max Garcia.  Both hurt and have not played a down for the team yet.

Drafting offensive linemen recently hasn’t been fruitful for the Cardinals.  Outside Mason Cole, it’s been mostly miss.

Getting decent offensive linemen may ultimately make or break the decision on whether the Cardinals keep Steve Keim as general manager or not.  Keep your eyes here.
