TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals head into the final day of the NFL draft with six selections, with cornerback and inside linebacker among the areas they may look to address.

For the third year in a row, general manager Steve Keim engineered a trade to add a later-round selection. On Friday, the Cardinals traded down three spots in the second round, obtaining a fifth-round pick from Baltimore in the process.

So far, the team has drafted offensive tackle D.J. Humphries of Florida in the first round, defensive end/outside linebacker Markus Golden of Missouri in the second and running back David Johnson of Northern Iowa in the third.

The Cardinals' remaining picks include "Mr. Irrelevant," the final selection in the draft.
