3. How will Andre Ellington ease into the starting RB roll? 

Last season Rashard Mendenhall was the guy coming out of the backfield. Mendenhall has since departed and now it looks like the RB job is Andre Ellington’s to lose. Ellington, in the time he played last season, played extremely well averaging 5.5 yards per carry on 118 attempts. The Cardinals have some younger guys in Stephan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer who could also see some playing time but, for the most part, the RB will revolve around Andre Ellington.
