While the Cardinals lack tremendous depth and a few positions across their defense they definitely possess some star power with Campbell and Peterson headlining the defensive unit.

Campbell is an absolute monster. None of his skills highlighted are below tremendous. Sure, 71 speed doesn’t look like the greatest thing on paper, but just take into account that Campbell is 6’8″ and 300 pounds. Yeah, I wouldn’t want a guy of his stature running at, near, or around me. No thanks.

When I look at Peterson’s ratings, I’m not sure if I am reading off the ratings of an All-Pro cornerback or an All-Pro wide receiver. 93 speed to go with 97 agility and 97 jumping? You have to be kidding me. In “Connected Franchise” mode I will be having Peterson play both sides of the ball as both a cornerback and a wide receiver because, well, why not.
