Mel Kiper releases mock draft 2.0, has Arizona Cardinals adding wide receiver and defensive lineman

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports The Arizona Cardinals consider moving down, but take Marvin Harrison Jr with first pick in round one. For the Arizona Cardinals, it seems like there are a couple of choices they can make, and one of the biggest questions is what they do with the fourth overall pick. Mel Kiper Jr. released his 2024 NFL Mock Draft 2.0 today on E$PN, and pondered the same a little bit: But unlike in usual drafts, when most trades up into the top five are for quarterbacks, I wonder if teams might try to trade up for Harrison. Would Arizona be able to pass up,...

2024 NFLPA report card sees Arizona Cardinals make slight improvements

Rob Schumacher/The Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK Things are getting better, except for a couple of spots for the Arizona Cardinals in the new NFLPA report card. Last year was bad. We knew things were bad, but last year was eye-openingly bad in terms of how badly the players thought of the Arizona Cardinals in the first ever publicly released NFLPA report card. If the goal was to improve things for the players within the Arizona Cardinals facility, then it has worked. Here are some highlights: Treatment of Families: D+ (19th) There have been improvements since last year....

The only way to play in a Super Bowl is to make the playoffs. So, yeah, I’m talkin’ bout playoffs. Context: For quite some time now here at ROTB and on Red Rain Podcast, I have been talking about how “attacking the middle of the field with success” is the key to winning NFL football games. Conversely, this is why you have been hearing me implore the Cardinals year after year to acquire slot CBs who can mirror the...

Have a look: QB tier list. tiers are mostly in order. pic.twitter.com/YoxEUALi3m— markeith (@markeithaha) February 25, 2024 Right off the bat, what issues do you have with some of the QBs in these grade tiers? For example, while it’s pretty much a slam dunk to place Patrick Mahomes in a category all his own (especially when one factors in his elite post-season QBRs), do you believe that Josh Allen has...

NFL salary cap comes in even higher than expected for 2024 NFL season

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports The Arizona Cardinals will have almost $60 million in cap space before making any moves.

The NFL just announced the salary cap for the 2024 season will be $255.4 million.

Red Rain Podcast: Why Monti Will Trade Down from Pick #4

The more that I look at the number of Top 15 2024 NFL Draft prospects whom I believe are likely to be rated very highly by the Cardinals (article coming tomorrow), the more convinced I am that if Monti Ossenfort gets an offer he likes, the Cardinals will trade down from #4. Kyle and I discuss this, as well as what we believe the Bears, Commanders and Patriots could do —- including the rumors today out of New England about a UFA QB in whom they are interested in offering a 3-year contract —- and how that could affect their draft plans at #3.
