TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have selected versatile offensive tackle D.J. Humphries of Florida with the 24th overall pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-5, 307-pound Humphries would slide in to the right tackle spot, where Bobby Massie struggled at times last season. Massie has a year left on his contract.

Any hopes the Cardinals may have had of landing a running back ended much earlier in the evening when Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon were selected far ahead of their pick.

General manager Steve Keim has steadily upgraded the offensive line, signing free agent left tackle Jared Veldheer before last season, then adding free agent left guard Mike Iupati this offseason.

Humphries left Florida after his junior season.
