The expectations for double-digit wins certainly are not there for the Arizona Cardinals this season.

There is some positive buzz surrounding the team locally, but nothing that would suggest any indication a playoff run is coming, as they are tabbed at an over/under win total in Vegas of 5.5.

The NFL, though, can be fairly unpredictable, and there is a case for the Cardinals to have a season that shocks many.

That’s what ESPN’s Mike Clay looked into, making the case for each team to win at least 10 games.

Despite the Cardinals ranking No. 31 in Clay’s win projections at 5.6, the case isn’t completely illogical.

David Johnson scored 20 touchdowns in 2016, and if he’s back to form after last season’s wrist injury, the Cardinals’ offense will make a big push forward. The offense also will need competent quarterback play from Sam Bradford or Josh Rosen and another year of production from 35-year-old Larry Fitzgerald. Chandler Jones and Patrick Peterson will need to hold down the fort defensively, and the unit will need breakout campaigns from youngsters Budda Baker, Haasan Reddick, Robert Nkemdiche and Markus Golden.

As Clay outlines, the talent is there.

Johnson is one of the league’s best running backs, and a season where he is the league’s best running back is a big wining step for Arizona. Bradford has established himself as a competent NFL quarterback when healthy and no one can discount the talent Rosen has. Add in the consistency of Fitzgerald and that could be enough for a sustainable offense.

Defensively is where there’s the most optimism. Jones and Peterson are two of the best players at their positions, but this is not a duo of stars relying on iffy contributions from others like the offense will. Baker, Reddick, Nkemdiche and Golden all have the potential to be game-changers at their position. The chance for big years from those four, as Clay notes, could make Arizona a dominant defense, one that would be good enough for 10 wins.

Most importantly, the Cardinals have high-level players across the field. But that, actually, is where Clay pauses for a second and sends us back to reality.

The Cardinals have a few stars in the form of Johnson, Fitzgerald, Peterson and Jones, but there are significant problem areas across the starting 22. Quarterback is obviously a gigantic question mark, wide receiver and tight end lack firepower, and the offensive line is average at best. Aside of a strong safety trio, the defense has major concerns at every level.

That reality on offense is overly relying on Bradford’s knee or a rookie quarterback and a receiving group beyond Fitzgerald that lacks any sort of reliability at the moment. The offensive line will be hoping for a resurgence from Andre Smith and Mike Iupati or breakout seasons for the younger Mason Cole and D.J. Humphries in order to make a real impact.

On defense, the defensive line is without Golden for the time being. At linebacker, a bounce-back year from Deone Bucannon would be a big boost, as would Reddick looking like the player general manager Steve Keim selected at No. 13 overall in last year’s draft. Lastly, it’s no surprise to see the cornerback on the opposite side of Patrick Peterson as a question mark.

Authentic Cheap NFL Cardinals Black Dorian Johnson Jerseys 2017

An early look at the depth chart spots
Posted by Darren Urban on July 23, 2017 – 9:34 am

There is no official depth chart until right before the first game of the preseason (which, given that the Cardinals play Aug. 3 in Canton against the Cowboys, is sooner than normal anyway), but after the first practice of training camp, we get an idea at least of how the players are stacked for now.
Among the areas to note: The base defense and the offensive line.
On the line, the first unit was pretty plain during offseason work:
LT D.J. Humphries
LG Mike Iupati
C A.Q. Shipley
RG Evan Boehm
RT Jared Veldheer
The second unit lined up this way:
LT Ulrick John
LG Kaleb Johnson
C Cole Toner
RG Tony Bergstrom
RT John Wetzel
Interesting to see that rookie guard Dorian Johnson is not even second unit right now, considering so many have talked about him challenging Boehm for a starting spot. But realistically, it’s not a surprise. A lot can change over the five weeks of camp, but this is where they are right now.
Defensively, here’s how they lined up in base (first-second unit)
DT Josh Mauro Robert Nkemdiche
NT Corey Peters Rodney Gunter
DT Frostee Rucker Olsen Pierre
OLB Markus Golden Kareem Martin
ILB Haason Reddick Gabe Martin
ILB Karlos Dansby Scooby Wright
OLB Chandler Jones Alani Fua
CB Patrick Peterson Jumal Rolle
CB Justin Bethel Brandon Williams
S Tyrann Mathieu Budda Baker
S Tyvon Branch Antoine Bethea
Things change in sub-packages — Bethea, for instance, is ahead of Baker at this point, on the first unit — but again, this will ebb and flow to a certain degree.
