As every Arizona fan knows, the Cardinals are set at the starting WR job, with superstar Larry Fitzgerald highly regarded as one of the best in the business. But since 2010, when Anquan Boldin left to take his talents to the Baltimore Ravens, the Cardinals have been searching for a #2 WR to help take pressure off Fitz, and create a threat similar to what Fitzgerald and Boldin were.

Right now, the Cardinals have three candidates for that job: Rookie Michael Floyd, Early Doucet, and Andre Roberts. All are young, all are talented, and all have a fair shot at the job. Who will take home the crown?

The first option for the Cardinals is Michael Floyd. A recent 1st Round pick, and regarded as one of the best WR's in the 2012 NFL Draft (right after Justin Blackmon), Floyd seems to have the upper hand in this competition, just based on his draft position alone.

Next is Early Doucet. Doucet has been with the team since being selected in the 3rd Round of the 2008 Draft. Drawing comparisons to WR's like Reggie Wayne and Anquan Boldin, Doucet certainly has shown the Cardinals flashes of brilliance, specifically in the 2009 postseason, when he scored two TD's against the Green Bay Packers. Unfortunately, Doucet has also been plagued with inconsistency, though he may be ready to break out of this.

Finally, there's Andre Roberts. Another 3rd Round pick, this time in the 2010 NFL Draft, most fans remember him for his 74 yard TD against the Dallas Cowboys on Christmas Eve, back in 2010. But like Doucet, Roberts has also been widely inconsistent. But, he's young (24), and has speed, so he could very well be an above-average WR in the future.

What do you think will happen? Will the rookie win out, or will he give way to one of the veterans? Vote in the poll and leave a comment to tell us what you think!
