Cardinals Look to O-Line in Draft

NFL teams can have official 'visits' with up to 30 players up to one week prior to the NFL draft. The Cardinals are making their interests known, and the interest in an offensive line to help protect Kurt Warner and open holes for Edgerrin James.

The Arizona Cardinals know that the offensive line is an issue, and they appear ready to address it again this season through the draft.  The Cardinals had a visit in March from Hofstra tackle Willie Colon.  The 6'3"/315lb player was a three year starter at Hofstra, earning All-Conference and All-American honors during his senior year.  A probable late round choice who will likely move to guard in the NFL, Colon would be a work in progress.

The Cardinals are not done though, having scheduled a visit with Chris Chester out of Oklahoma.  The fifth year senior is a converted tight end who will likely need to add weight to his 6'3.5" frame but has incredible athleticism and a ton of upside.  Currently ranked second in Scout.com's rankings at center, and could play guard as he adds weight and skill to his developing body.
