TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals addressed a need to improve their pass rush on Saturday by selecting outside linebacker Sam Acho from Texas in the fourth round.

They also nabbed inside linebacker Quan Sturdivant after the North Carolina inside linebacker slipped to the sixth round.

In the fifth round, Arizona looked to fill a role at fullback and special teams by selecting Connecticut's Anthony Sherman. The Cardinals are among a handful of NFL teams that still use a fullback in their offense.

With their final pick, the Cardinals chose San Diego State wide receiver DeMarco Sampson. The compensatory pick in the seventh round was the 249th selection overall.
