The Cardinals didn’t play and still fell down the draft order for 2018.

The 2018 NFL Draft is 178 days away.

The Arizona Cardinals were on a bye week this week, sitting at 3-4 with the seventh pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Well, after week eight in the NFL, the Cardinals fell to the 10th pick in the draft.

Let’s take a look, thanks to

  1. Cleveland Browns (0-8) (Browns strength of schedule = 0.508)
  2. San Francisco 49ers (0-8) (0.576)
  3. New York Giants (1-6)
  4. Indianapolis Colts (2-6)
  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-5)
  6. New York Jets (3-5) (0.508)
  7. Oakland Raiders (3-5) (0.517)
  8. Los Angeles Chargers (3-5) (0.55)
  9. Chicago Bears (3-5) (0.6)
  10. Arizona Cardinals (3-4) (0.442)
  11. Cincinnati Bengals (3-4) (0.453)
  12. Denver Broncos (3-4) (0.472)
  13. Cleveland Browns via Houston Texans (3-4) (0.538)
  14. Detroit Lions (3-4) (0.577)
  15. Washington Redskins (3-4) (0.593)
  16. Baltimore Ravens (4-4)
  17. Dallas Cowboys (4-3) (0.38)
  18. Tennessee Titans (4-3) (0.404)
  19. Atlanta Falcons (4-3) (0.538)
  20. Green Bay Packers (4-3) (0.588)

The Cardinals falling to 10 is a bit of bad fortune, but they have a host of competition for that 10 spot right now. The sixth pick to the 15th pick all have three wins, so the end of the season will have an interesting fallout on the draft, but we still have a long way to go.

For me, that is a nice spot to get a player like Maurice Hurst or Christian Wilkins. They are not the elite interior pass rushers we have seen in the past, but they are needs and top end talents in this draft.

The two names that also interest me, even though I am anti-wide receiver are Courtland Sutton and Calvin Ridley.

The first choice, for me is Quenton Nelson.
