The Arizona Cardinals are picking 13th in the 2012 NFL Draft, which starts on Thursday. SB Nation's Cardinals blog, Revenge of the Birds, listed the Cardinals needs entering Thursday's draft and it starts with offensive tackle, despite bringing back Levi Brown in free agency. Riley Reiff or Jonathan Martin could be a consideration with the 13th pick.

Other needs, according to Revenge of the Birds, include:

The Cardinals desperately need an offensive tackle. They could use a number two receiver, one that can stretch the field. The third biggest need could either be at outside linebacker or at safety (more for depth and the future).
