Second Year — Michael Floyd, WR

Floyd had just 45 receptions for 562 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, but I think he can be an absolute stud in Bruce Arians’ offense.

Arians has praised Floyd, calling him a “bright young star” and it’s translated to the field. Floyd has jumped ahead of Andre Roberts as the #2 receiver opposite Larry Fitzgerald, which was the plan set in place all along from the day he was drafted in 2012.

With his size and playmaking ability, I think the new #2 in Arizona is going to benefit not just from the arrival of Bruce Arians, but a competent QB in Carson Palmer. Those two additions, along with improved pass protection up front, should allow the second year star to breakout and give the Cardinals another big time playmaker on the outside.
