Even after gaining just 78 yards, an NFL all-time worst in a playoff game, against the Panthers, the Arizona Cardinals will be focused primarily on defensive prospects in the upcoming draft in late-April.
Carson Palmer will be back at the helm of the offense to start the 2015 season after going down with a torn ACL this year. Palmer will also get Andre Ellington back who missed the last four games of this year with a sports-hernia.
With the quarterback and lead-running back cases solved the only impact position left up in the air is the wide receiver spot. Larry Fitzgerald is due upward of $15 million next season and all signs are pointing toward the fact that he has played his final game with the Cardinals.
That being said, Michael Floyd would then take over the top-wide receiver (he was already putting up No. 1 wide receiver numbers) and John Brown would slide into the No. 2 spot and Ted Ginn Jr. into the No. 3. If the Cardinals want to make a splash in the early rounds at an offensive position then they should go after one of the many highly-touted wide receivers.
