The Arizona Cardinals have made it through the draft season and free agency.

It was an offseason that not many saw coming and was orchestrated in a way that only Steve Keim could do. The Cardinals did not use their first-round pick on a rookie but instead sent it to the Baltimore Ravens for Marquise Brown.

Whether pre-planned or not, that move saved face when DeAndre Hopkins got suspended for six games. So now there are more questions than ever surrounding the wide receiver depth chart and offense.

The defensive line also saw a revamp, with three defensive linemen taken in the draft. With the anticipated and much-needed return of J.J. Watt, who will play on the defensive line in the Cardinals 3-4 defense is anyone’s guess.

Facing a critical offseason where the Arizona Cardinals are trying to catch the defending Super Bowl Champion L.A. Rams, an analysis of the biggest strength and weakness of the team is needed. This way, fans of the team can be ready to expect good (or not-so-good) things from these areas.

Let’s start with the strongest.
