Quarterback: The level of need for this position depends upon negotiations for the CBA. If the lockout continues, then the Cardinals might have to take a quarterback higher than they want, just to cover themselves for 2011. Coaches like what they saw out of John Skelton as a rookie last year, and they think Rich Bartel can be a solid No. 3. What the team needs is a reliable starter, which it would prefer to find in free agency or via trade.
Inside linebacker: The team needs a thumper inside to bolster the run defense. Paris Lenon is a solid veteran but probably better on the weak side. Gerald Hayes, the starter for most of the past five seasons, probably will be released.
Guard: Left guard Alan Faneca is considering retirement and right guard Deuce Lutui is unsigned and could hit free agency. There are a couple of veterans who could step in, Jeremy Bridges and Rex Hadnot, but the team needs to begin developing some young inside linemen.
