With the Arizona Cardinals, each week brings a new belief in the team or dread of what the team has become.

It is an up week, as the Cardinals beat the San Francisco 49ers to move to 4-4 on the season.

With that win, the Cardinals have now fallen out of the top ten in the 2018 NFL Draft, let’s take a look.

  1. San Francisco 49ers (0-9)
  2. Cleveland Browns (0-8)
  3. New York Giants (1-7)
  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-6)
  5. Indianapolis Colts (3-6)
  6. Cincinnati Bengals (3-5)
  7. Cleveland Browns via Houston Texans (3-5)
  8. Los Angeles Chargers (3-5)
  9. Denver Broncos (3-5)
  10. Chicago Bears (3-5)
  11. Baltimore Ravens (4-5)
  12. New York Jets (4-5)
  13. Oakland Raiders (4-5)
  14. Arizona Cardinals (4-4)
  15. Miami Dolphins (4-4)
  16. Atlanta Falcons (4-4)
  17. Green Bay Packers (4-4)
  18. Detroit Lions (4-4)
  19. Washington Redskins (4-4)
  20. Seattle Seahawks (5-3)

With the Cardinals bad strength of schedule, they sit with the 14th pick, despite being one of six teams with a 4-4 record.

The Cardinals are close to being a top seven pick and also close to being a playoff team. That’s right where they want to be.

Where are the Cardinals next week? Their strength of schedule will still be low, they are third lowest behind Seattle and the Rams, so do they end up closer to the playoffs, or in the top ten picks for 2018?
