Slideshow: Potential Cardinals draft picks

The Cardinals are set to pick 13th in the first round of the
NFL Draft Thursday.

Selecting later in the draft means it’s tougher to trim down
the list of potential candidates, though we’ve done our

Below is a list of 10 players, one of whom is likely to be
an Arizona Cardinal Thursday evening.

Mike Adams, a 6-foot-8 offensive tackle from 
Ohio State, was named a first-team All-Big 
Ten as a junior. He had some trouble off the 
field and was suspended for the first five 
games last 
year for receiving improper benefits from 
selling collectibles at a tattoo parlor in 
Ohio, and then failed a drug test at the NFL 
Combine. Notre Dame wide receiver Michael 
Floyd had 100 catches and 1,147 yards his 
senior year. He also scored 37 touchdowns 
throughout his entire college career. David DeCastro, a guard from Stanford, 
spent three years protecting quarterback Andrew 
Luck and paving the way for one of the Pac-12's 
best rushing attacks. He started 39 games at 
right guard with an offensive line that allowed 
just 24 sacks in three years. Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw thrived 
under the guidance of Nick Saban. In the BCS 
Championship game, Upshaw had six tackles and 
one sack in the 21-0 win. He finished the 
season with 51 total tackles and 8.5 sacks. A defensive end from South Carolina, Melvin 
Ingram had two interceptions and 10 sacks his 
senior year. He also led the Gamecocks with 
13.5 tackles for loss in 2011. Another possible choice as wide receiver for 
the Cards, Justin Blackmon gained 1,522 yards 
off of 121 receptions in 2011. The Oklahoma 
State product also scored 18 touchdowns last 
season, three of which came in a Fiesta 
Bowl win over Stanford. Dontari Poe, a 6-foot-4, 346 pound defensive 
tackle out of Memphis, was credited with 33 
tackles and one sack in 2011. Cordy Glenn, a 6-5, 348-pound offensive tackle 
from Georgia, started 50 games at left guard, 
left tackle, and right guard. The versatile 
lineman was a driving force behind the 
Bulldogs' average of 413 offensive yards per 
game in 2011. Jonathan Martin, a senior offensive tackle from 
Stanford, could be on the radar for the Cards. 
The two-time first team all-conference 
selection started 27 games at left tackle, 
protecting future top pick Andrew Luck's 
blindside. Riley Reiff could be a Cardinal after three 
years at the University of Iowa. The offensive 
lineman helped the Hawkeyes make consecutive 
appearances in the Insight Bowl last year.
