Cardinals likely to focus on late-round DEs
Jabaal Sheard, Pittsburgh
Notes: Effective pass rusher with good length as a strongside end in college, but may need to transition to linebacker at the next level.
Projection: 2nd round.
Allen Bailey, Miami (FL)
Notes: Mostly a bull rusher that struggles to generate pressure off the edge and will be a better fit as a 3-4 defensive end or 4-3 defensive tackle.
Projection: 2nd-3rd round.
Pernell McPhee, Mississippi State
Notes: Entered the season as one of the most highly regarded prospects at the position, but a lackluster performances in his senior season and at the Senior Bowl have his stock on the decline.
Projection: 4th round.
Greg Romeus, Pittsburgh
Notes: Gifted pass rusher with outstanding size, but suffered major back and knee injuries that nearly cost him his entire senior season.
Projection: 4th-5th round.
