Most of the NFL universe is fixated on what the Arizona Cardinals will do with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, but Arizona has 10 total picks in the draft and it has been active on figuring out who to take with those selections.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that the Cardinals will visit with Penn State defensive end Shareef Miller.

Miller was a third-team All-Big Ten selection in 2017 and selected as the Penn State defensive MVP in 2018.

He performed at the NFL Combine, coming in a 6-foot-4, 254 pounds and ran the 40 in 4.69 seconds.

He could fill a depth role for the Cardinals behind Chandler Jones and newly acquired Terrell Suggs.

Arizona is expected to transition from a 4-3 defense back to the 3-4. Last season, the Cardinals made the opposite switch from a 3-4 to a 4-3, but did not select any defensive front-seen players in the draft to disastrous results.

The 26.6 points per game allowed by the Cardinals ranked No. 26 in the NFL last season.

Arizona was also reportedly linked to a work out with Texas A&M All-American tight end Jace Sternberger.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Sternberger worked out with the Cardinals and Bengals and is set to meet with several other NFL teams.

The Cardinals lacked a real pass catching threat last season and acquired former Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay to help sure up the position this offseason.
