The Arizona Cardinals have focused on offense in free agency thus far, signing Tedd Ginn Jr., John Carlson and Jonathan Dwyer, but there are many ways the Cardinals could go in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Here are five guys who should be available when the No. 20 overall pick comes around, and could end up standing next to Roger Goodell, holding a Cardinals jersey on draft day.

Cyrus Kouandjio is perhaps the most natural right tackle in the draft, and with the Cardinals signing Jared Veldheer to protect Carson Palmer's blindside, Kouandjio could be a perfect fit on the right side of the line.

One of the inconsistencies the Cardinals had last season was their pass rush. Dee Ford can bring a fresh face into the linebacking core that is currently led by an aging John Abraham. If I was a betting man, I would say that Ford is the guy most likely to be selected with the No. 20 overall pick.

The Cardinals are very deep at wide receiver with Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and now Tedd Ginn Jr., but adding in a young wide receiver to this core could help him develop into an elite receiver in only a few seasons. When it gets to the 20th overall pick, Marqise Lee is very likely to be the best skilled player available, which is always difficult to pass on.

The biggest loss for the Cardinals in free agency is without a doubt linebacker Karlos Dansby. C.J. Mosley is the most talented inside linebacker in the draft, and while he may not start as a rookie, he could definitely be the eventual guy to fill the huge void left by Dansby's departure.

Xavier Su'a-Filo is the highest rated offensive guard in the 2014 NFL Draft, and although guard isn't one of the top needs for the Cardinals, he has experience playing tackle as well, starting all 13 games as a true freshman at left tackle for UCLA. Some experts have him as more of a late-round selection, but his versatility and athleticism could make him a surprise pickup at the 20th overall spot.
