The Arizona Cardinals have a new coach and the first-overall pick in the draft. In a very important offseason, what are the team’s five biggest needs?
Steve Wilks only lasted one season in the desert as the Arizona Cardinals’ head coach. After a 3-13 season, he was fired.
General Manager Steve Keim and owner Bill Bidwill then had to find the team’s next head coach. Rather than hiring a veteran, they landed on Kliff Kingsbury. He played briefly in the early to mid-2000’s, but he made his name as the head coach of the Texas Tech football team.
There is a freshness in the air surrounding the Cardinals. Kingsbury is a young mind, the team has about $38 million in available cap space and they will also be drafting with the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. However, that fresh scent can quickly become sour if they do too little this offseason.
Josh Rosen appears to be the quarterback of the future for the Cardinals as of right now, but that may change come draft night. Outside of that position, the Cardinals have a much more concrete idea of what they need to address in order to be better in 2019.
So, what are the positions the team should focus on?
