The Arizona Cardinals enter the 2020 NFL Draft with six picks, including the eighth overall pick. Arizona traded away its second round pick in a deal that netted them DeAndre Hopkins, which still seems like a steal. Their final pick is in the seventh round at No. 222 overall.
The Cardinals took a step forward in 2019 with new coach Kliff Kingsbury and new quarterback Kyler Murray. Their fast-paced offense impressed, and while their win-loss record was not great, the Cardinals are in position to take a big step forward with Hopkins and Kenyan Drake complementing Murray. They are likely to beef up their defensive line early in this week’s draft.
