NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

There are plenty of questions for the Arizona Cardinals heading into the 2020 NFL season.

A number of those questions apply to how they will use their talent and in what order they will deploy that talent.

Pro Football Focus projected the Arizona Cardinals starting lineup, along with every other NFL team and it is interesting to look at:


QB: Kyler Murray

RB: Kenyan Drake

WR: Deandre Hopkins

WR: Christian Kirk

Slot: Larry Fitzgerald

TE: Maxx Williams

LT: D.J. Humphries

LG: Justin Pugh

C: Mason Cole

RG: J.R. Sweezy

RT: Marcus Gilbert


DI: Corey Peters

DI: Jordan Phillips

EDGE: Chandler Jones

EDGE: Devon Kennard

LB: Isaiah Simmons

LB: Jordan Hicks

CB: Patrick Peterson

CB: Robert Alford

CB: Byron Murphy

S: Budda Baker

S: Jalen Thompson

On offense, nothing surprising other than maybe Marcus Gilbert as the starting right tackle. However, you expect that to be the plan with him being brought back.

Defensively it is interesting to see only two down defensive lineman in Peter and Phillips, while rookie Isaiah Simmons gets the nos over veteran and newly signed and handsomely paid De’Vondre Campbell.

We’ll see how it shakes out in September.
