One of the biggest set of decisions a front office has to make every offseason is in regards to who they want to place on their practice squad. They are able to choose eight players that can hopefully not only develop themselves, but also be called up to the main roster if ever need be.

So now that the Cardinals have chosen their eight guys, let's take a look at who has the best shot of being tagged to be on the 53-man roster at some point this season.

In case you missed it, here are the eight:

WR Isaiah Williams

WR Gerrell Robinson

DT Ricky Lumpkin

LB Colin Parker

DB Larry Parker

TE Steve Skelton

OLB Ricky Elmore

T Steven Baker

These are the eight that will participate in practices with the team this year, two of them (Robinson and C. Parker) being graduates from Arizona State University and one (Elmore) from U of A.

So if injuries occur, which they always do, which of these players could see time with the main team?

First, I would have to start with Isaiah Williams. He has been with the Cardinals since 2010 and will know the scheme as good as anybody. If a wide receiver unfortunately were to get injured, I think Williams would have the edge over Robinson.

Steven Baker is another guy that has more than a decent chance at making the roster. The Cards are already shorthanded at the tackle position as it is and if someone either gets hurt or underperforms, Baker could get the call. He is a big player that, with some development, could have an impact for Arizona.

Lastly, I could definitely see Lumpkin making his way back onto the team. If you recall, the team promoted Ronald Talley to the active roster last season when Dan Williams got hurt. The Cardinals are only one player deep at each position along the defensive line and given how much they work, they are rotated frequently. Having enough able bodies in that unit is crucial. Besides, he needs to pay off the $21,000 fine for hitting Matt Leinart. A couple of NFL game checks should help him along with that.

What do you think? Who are the players you could see making the active roster for the Arizona Cardinals? Tell us in the comments section below.
