The Arizona Cardinals next stop in offseason scouting is the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine

It’s February, so you know what that means.  It’s time for the Arizona Cardinals and rest of the NFL to head to the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

The Scouting Combine starts in two weeks on February 24th.  Here are 10 players the Cardinals should keep their eye on as they march on towards the NFL Draft in April.

Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State

There is no doubt Benjamin is a great athlete.  How his game will translate to the NFL we shall see but best guesses are that he will do just fine.

Reasons why the Cardinals should be interested:

He has versatility.  He is a back that can a little bit of everything.  He can run and catch.  That is something the Cardinals have gotten out of David Johnson in the past.

With Johnson’s status up in the air for 2020, Benjamin would make a nice addition whether the Cardinals decide to keep Kenyan Drake or not.

Benjamin ran for 1,083-yards in 2019 and caught 42 passes for 347-yards and 2 touchdowns in the air.  He had 10 rushing touchdowns.  Combine that with his 2018 numbers of 1,642-yards and 16 rushing touchdowns and 35 receptions and 2 receiving touchdowns he could be welcome addition.

Reasons why the Cardinals would not be interested:

A lot will depend on how the Cardinals fare in free agency with Drake and what they decide to do with Johnson.  Cardinals also have Chase Edmonds and another ASU product in D.J. Foster.  Likely the Cardinals would have to be without Drake or Johnson to consider drafting Benjamin.
