Arizona Cardinals depth chart ranked outside Top 10 in running back rankings

Arizona Cardinals depth chart ranked outside Top 10 in running back rankings

Despite David Johnson’s presence on the depth chart, the Cardinals find themselves outside of the top 10 in the running back rankings. Lists and arguing about those lists consume the offseason, yet they sometimes sneak up on you. As I was trolling looking through different sites I came across this Bleacher Report article on the ranking of every NFL backfield. Naturally, with David Johnson being one of the five best running backs in the NFL, I expected to see the Cardinals maybe in the 7-10 range, with the unknowns behind Johnson, but with Johnson carrying the day. What I found was a bit...

2018 NFC West Pre-Season Position Rankings: Defense

Ranking the defenses in the NFC West. I appreciated and agreed with many of your comments about the offensive rankings. While I believe that RB David Johnson is as talented as any RB in the NFL, it was difficult to rank him ahead of RB Todd Gurley who had over 2,000 yards combined (rushing and receiving and 19 TDs in 2017---the kind of season Cardinals’ fans were hoping to get from David Johnson. A few of you were arguing that G D.J. Fluker (SEA) should be rated higher than G Jonathan Cooper (SF), and while I agree that Fluker might be more physcially talented, Fluker’s 2017 PFF grade...

Johnson and Johnson

The Auspicious Return of the Cardinals’ Dual-Threat RB/WR At the 2015 NFL Combine, David Johnson was the star performer of the RBs---posting a 4.5 40, 25 reps at 225, an eye-popping 41.5” vertical, 127” in the broad jump and a nifty 6.82 time in the 3 cone---all of this at 6-1, 225 pounds. As was well documented on All or Nothing, the Cardinals had their eyes set on taking Ameer Abdullah in round 2, but, after they were beat to the punch by the Lions, the Cardinals opted instead for David Johnson in round 3.
