ESPN -- Rank: 32
Cornerback was just one of many positions the Cardinals had to address this offseason, and, like some of the others, they did. Arizona signed new corners Rashad Fenton and Kris Boyd and drafted two more in Garrett Williams out of Syracuse and Kei'Trel Clark out of Louisville, while bringing back Antonio Hamilton.
Arizona had one of the worst defenses against the pass last season, giving up the highest completion percentage in the league, and was ranked 30th in completions allowed and 28th in touchdown passes allowed and touchdowns per attempt. The Cardinals added much-needed depth and, perhaps, a starter or two after losing Byron Murphy to the Minnesota Vikings in free agency to complement returners Marco Wilson and Christian Matthew.

Hype man: What a beautiful fall ahead in lovely Phoenix, where we can all watch USC games on Saturday and go hiking all day Sunday without any concern for knowing what's going on in the Cardinals game. Start printing those Caleb Williams jerseys.
DeAndre Downer: Does anyone have any good blackmail ideas to get Lincoln Riley to sit his quarterback for an entire season?
PFF -- Rank: 32
With J.J. Watt retiring, BJ Ojulari will look to follow in his massive footsteps and generate pressure on opposing quarterbacks. That's a mighty tall order for the rookie out of LSU, but Arizona added a lot of help on both sides of the ball, with a clear long-term vision for new general manager Monti Ossenfort and head coach Jonathan Gannon.
Fortunately for the Cardinals, according to 2024 Super Bowl odds, they're currently projected to have the following draft picks next year in the first three rounds: Nos. 1, 2, 33, 65, 66 and 68.
