It is a big year for the Arizona Cardinals and especially their 2018 draft class.
Edmonds as a fourth round pick has his niche and role. He is the lead backup running back and a key component to the teams dynamic rushing attack.
Kirk has been steady but injury plagued in his two seasons.
He had 590 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie in only 13 games (7 starts) and three touchdowns.
It was the six sub-40 yard games that were the issue and where you want to see maybe the growth to become potentially a number two receiver.
Cole is slotted in tentatively as the starting center. After a steady yet underwhelming 16 games as a rookie, he has been in the Kingsbury system for a year and in an NFL weight training program for two. That should mean improvement in his ability to anchor and get a push in the run game, something that A.Q. Shipley did well.
It may be a make or break year for the 2018 draft class, let’s hope they prove their worth.
