What do the Arizona Cardinals need to address to build off of a strong season with Kyler Murray?

The Arizona Cardinals are now one season removed from the takeover of the new regime. After rookie quarterback, Kyler Murray, put together a strong season, he came home with rookie of the year after the NFL Honors. Now that the Cardinals got the guy to lead the team for the foreseeable future, there are some key positions that need to be addressed to make his life easier as the starting quarterback.

Whether it’s protecting Kyler Murray, giving him some more weapons to increase the lethality of the new air raid system, or bolstering the defensive line, the Cardinals have a multitude of directions they could head on draft weekend in April.

The positions the Cardinals should be prioritizing in April are great at the top and have great depth. Whatever direction the Cardinals end up going, they should have no issue addressing other positions later in the draft while still getting starting-caliber players. As the new regime is entering a second year, things look good for the Cardinals.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury and general manager Steve Keim are going to want to build off the year of improvement that was the 2019 season, and one of the best ways to do that is through the draft.

This year, the Arizona Cardinals have a prime draft pick, No. 8 overall. As we see every year, quarterbacks dominate the top of the draft, meaning some darn good players will fall to the Cardinals at number eight. Follow along as we look at some of the positions the Arizona Cardinals should target in the 2020 NFL Draft, along with some specific players they could be targeting.
