Arizona Cardinals roster the worst in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus

The Arizona Cardinals have fallen along way in the Steve Keim era.

In 2015 and 2016 they were considered some of the most talented teams in the NFL.

However, as former head coach Bruce Arians so eloquently put it...

That is why it is so... impressive, that the Cardinals find themselves in such a bad spot. They have fallen quite a bit.

PFF ranked all 32 rosters in the NFL for ESPN and our Arizona Cardinals find themselves as the worst roster in the NFL.

From PFF:

32. Arizona Cardinals

Biggest strength: The Cardinals didn’t have many strengths last season, but they did tackle well...

Biggest weakness: The Cardinals ranked 32nd in pass blocking (55.8) last season and allowed a whopping 218 total pressures (34 sacks, 42 hits and 142 hurries) on 563 pass-blocking snaps. In the past eight seasons, only two teams have had a worse single-season pass-blocking grade than the Cardinals did in 2018: Arizona (55.4) and Houston (54.8) in 2017.

X factor for 2019: Kyler Murray enters a difficult situation in Arizona, but he has the talent to help remedy the situation...

When you look at the grades from PFF you see that the Cardinals lack high end talent. They have one player considered good/high quality, Patrick Peterson.

They have eight players considered average, Terrell Suggs, Rodney Gunter, Chandler Jones, Jordan Hicks, D.J. Swearinger, and on offense it is Maxx Williams, Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald.

It is why PFF has the Cardinals as the worst roster in the NFL. They just lack talent, especially on offense.

We will see if this draft and the offseason begins to produce a bit more production and talent from the team.

Where do you think you’d rank the Arizona Cardinals roster?
