Arizona Sports NFL Mock Draft Tracker: Who’s next for the Cardinals?

We’re looking ahead to the 2019 NFL season — which is a moral imperative for fans of the Arizona Cardinals based on how the 2018 season went. The Cardinals figure to have a top-five pick in the first round for the first time since 2011 — the year they landed cornerback Patrick Peterson out of LSU with the fifth overall selection. With so many areas of need, the draft process should be an interesting one for the Arizona front office from now until April 25th when the proceedings get...

What does the future hold for Markus Golden?

Coming off an ACL injury, defensive end Markus Golden has not been very productive in the final year of his rookie contract.

One of the more underspoken storylines of this grueling Arizona Cardinals season has been the lack of pass rush the Cardinals have manufactured. Minus Chandler Jones, no one on the Cardinals defensive line in Coach Wilks’ 4-3 scheme has been able to generate consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks, which has put a lot of strain on what is already a perilously...

ESPN’s Barnwell: Cardinals QB Rosen might deserve a mulligan

The numbers rarely look good for a rookie quarterback. It’s hard to project players by looking at their first season on the job, which is why the Arizona Cardinals have hardly felt the need to criticize or nitpick Josh Rosen, the No. 10 selection in the 2018 draft. They know he has enough pressure on him. And he knows on-paper improvement will come as he gains experience and comfort. “I definitely need to throw to our team a lot more, in all facets,” Rosen said with a no-duh tone this...

With the Cardinals officially eliminated from the playoffs, the final few games are all about player development. Let’s check in with a few players we’ve been tracking. How did they do in Week 14?

Sunday’s depressing loss to the Lions officially eliminated the Cardinals from playoff contention, removing any pretense that the final few games are about anything other than player development/evaluation. With that in mind, we’ve been tracking several young Cardinals players the past...

A look around the web at the Arizona Cardinals.

Happy Thursday one and all, hope your week is going by swimmingly.

The Arizona Cardinals are getting closer to taking on one of, if not the most disappointing teams in the NFL in 2018... the Atlanta Falcons.

We are creeping closer and closer to the next games, so let’s get ready with a look around the web at the Arizona Cardinals.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon stays in the moment as free agency looms

TEMPE, Ariz. — Deone Bucannon sounds the same as he did when he was benched earlier this season. He hasn’t lost focus or been a pill. After all, what would that add? It’s been a rough year for everyone in the Arizona Cardinals’ locker room through a 3-10 season. For Bucannon, the remaining three games present a chance to fight not only for pride but next year’s paycheck. Unlike anyone else on the roster, though, his career arc already includes a pronounced peak. But he’ll leave...

Cardinals DT Robert Nkemdiche suffered torn ACL

The Cardinals placed defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche on injured reserve earlier this week, but declined to give details on the nature of his injury. Today, Arizona head coach Steve Wilks announced that Nkemdiche actually suffered a torn ACL against the Lions (Twitter link via Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com) The revelation of Nkemdiche’s ACL tear has numerous implications, beginning with his availability for the 2019 campaign. ACL recovery times can vary in length, with most players...

Wilks and Rosen clash … over who has the best holiday decorations

Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks has a quarterback controversy. He created this all his own. That’s because Wilks is backing Arizona’s offensive linemen rather than their rookie signal-caller. The topic: Which position group has the best holiday decorations in their meeting room? Rosen showed off the work put in by he and fellow rookie Chad Kanoff with a short video of the decorations in the QB room at Cardinals headquarters. The door is wrapped. A wreath hung.

Robert Nkemdiche to have ACL surgery per team

The worst possible scenario for the Cardinals came true with Robert Nkemdiche.

For the Arizona Cardinals, the only news lately is bad news.

The team announced today that the injury that forced defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche onto injured reserve and will require surgery, is in fact an ACL tear.

That was always the fear when the news of an IR stint and surgery, but it makes the sting even worse knowing how important explosiveness is to Nkemdiche’s game.

The team announced on Tuesday that Nkemdiche would be sent to the injured reserve and that surgery would be necessary. A timeline for the surgery and confirmation of an ACL tear was affirmed the next day.

Arizona Cardinals pick first, take elite talent in Todd McShay’s first Mock 2019 NFL Draft

The Arizona Cardinals get the best player in the 2019 NFL Draft.

With three games to go in the 2018 NFL season, we are onto the 2019 NFL Draft.

Oh sure, we’ll cover the team and the goings on, but the focus of the rest of the season will be mostly on debating the merits of Steve Keim and Steve Wilks keeping their jobs, who the Cardinals should hire if they fire their GM, head coach or just one or the other and of course, who they should draft.

That’s where we come in.

Finding the right players to move forward with is the most important aspect of the Arizona Cardinals season

The Cardinals need to find the right mix of players to move forward with in 2019 and beyond.

When you have a season like the one the Arizona Cardinals have had, where the best thing that comes of it may be the opportunity to hold the top pick in the upcoming draft, there is not much to look forward to week-to-week.

One of the most important things they can do for the final three games of the season is see what they have to look forward to and who can contribute in 2019.

Vegas Called Cardinals’ Bluff

Steve Keim tried to assure Cardinals’ fans and loyal season ticket holders that the 2018 season was an exciting “retool” and not a rebuild.

He gushed about having Sam Bradford and his “elite skillset” behind center, coached by the venerable, time-tested Mike McCoy.

He gushed about having David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald back with a revamped offensive line comprised of 4 former 1st round picks.

He was so confident about the defensive personnel that he only took one defensive...

Arizona Cardinals need to use the top pick if they get it

Trading back is good in theory, but the Cardinals lack high end talent and need to start stacking it.

With the Arizona Cardinals three games away from locking up a top two pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, there are plenty of questions that will be asked over the next five months.

The biggest question is should the Arizona Cardinals trade back if they land a top two or three pick?

The easy answer is no.

The longer answer is simply, it would have to guarantee them one of the top four players in the...
