The Cardinals will have some wide receiver options in the 2017 NFL Draft
A once strong wide receiver corps has become one of the big question marks for the Arizona Cardinals. Certainly, the issues with receivers have contributed to the disappointing season. The Cardinals will miss the playoffs in a season where most experts thought they’d contend for a Super Bowl win, and as the off-season approaches, attention shifts to improving the team. Receiver will certainly be addressed.
Larry Fitzgerald may, or may not, be back. Assuming he returns, he gives the Cardinals a savvy veteran presence who is still a solid number one receiver. He catches everything, and has to be accounted for. After him, things get murky.
Michael Floyd is gone, John Brown is dealing with a sickle cell trait that has limited him, and JJ Nelson is more of a specialty third or fourth receiver. They could look to address it in free agency, but there are going to have some options in the 2017 NFL Draft.
They seem destined to add a receiver this off-season, and there are talented guys available. Here is a look at five draft-eligible players who could be targeted in the coming selection process. This is assuming they all leave school.
