The Arizona Cardinals were one of the surprise teams last year in the NFL as they finished 10-6 overall. Despite missing  the playoffs due to a highly competitive NFC, head coach Bruce Arians showed that he was the right coach for the team and that the Cardinals could win with their tough defense and solid run game.

Carson Palmer was efficient when protected by his offensive line, but he was under duress far too often last season. The Cardinals addressed the situation by signing left tackle Jared Veldheer, as well as banking on last year’s eighth overall pick, Jonathan Cooper, who is returning from injury to start at right guard. The Cardinals are a highly talented team that's only a few picks away from being a powerhouse in the NFC.

The Cardinals are On The Clock.
