With the 20th pick in the NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select…

Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State

Selection made by Scott Allen, Raising Zona

Here is the analysis on the selection:

There are a number of ways the Cards could go here at 20, however one of the areas of need is at linebacker. Shazier has explosiveness and good field vision. Combine that with great character and I like Shazier to go to the Cards at a position that had a revolving door in 2013 thanks to injuries. Shazier will add depth and should make an immediate impact to the team.
