NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2021 offseason in full swing lists and rankings will be the order of the time as we find ways to not only entertain, but to piss off.

That is why as PFF goes through each position it is interesting to see where the Arizona Cardinals fall.

For the running back rankings, you can look at it one of two ways:

  1. They made the right move in letting Kenyan Drake move on.
  2. Running back could be a position of concern.

From PFF:


Edmonds has been struggling for opportunities in Arizona but outperformed Kenyan Drake whenever he got the chance to. Edmonds was primarily used as the team’s receiving back, generating a passer rating of 112.9 when targeted, but he also averaged more per carry and more after contact per carry than Drake.

Chase Edmonds ranks 30th out of all NFL running backs, one spot ahead of former teammate Kenyan Drake.

The question is, will Edmonds be able to move up the rankings and into maybe a top 20 back this season in a contract year?

What do you think?
