QBs (3):

  • Kyler Murray
  • Colt McCoy
  • Chris Streveler

RBs (3):

  • Chase Edmonds
  • James Conner
  • Jonathan Ward

WRs (6):

TEs (2):

  • Maxx Williams
  • Darrell Daniels

OL (10):

  • Justin Murray
  • Brian Winters
  • Kelvin Beachum
  • Josh Jones
  • Rodney Hudson
  • Max Garcia
  • D.J. Humphries
  • Justin Pugh
  • Joshua Miles
  • Shaq Calhoun

The Cardinals likely will keep all three quarterbacks. Streveler should be the third guy and likely is inactive most weeks unless there is an injury. McCoy clearly outplayed him during the preseason.

The big question here is could Arizona expand this by one more tight end? Maybe one more receiver? Receiver Antonie Wesley deserves some consideration.

Certainly, the Cardinals will carry a minimum of 10 offensive linemen. Injuries happen often and Arizona has proven that in recent years.

One draft pick on the offensive side of the ball does not make this list. That is seventh-round offensive lineman Michal Menet. He is currently third on the depth chart at center.
