Arizona Cardinals open OTA’s with a number of questions at cornerback

NFL: Arizona Cardinals Minicamp Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

For the Arizona Cardinals the cornerback position is the one so many have questions on.

With offseason workouts underway, we will begin to see the defense take shape as a whole, but the question is how do the corners take shape?

The assumption is that we will see third year cornerback Byron Murphy Jr and newly acquired veteran Malcolm Butler.

While that is the most likely, the real question becomes what do they do with their third cornerback position?

Will Robert Alford finally make it to a regular season with the Arizona Cardinals? If he does will he come in as the third cornerback allowing Murphy to flow between a boundary position and the slot?

Will newly signed Darqueze Dennard be the third cornerback and their slot guy leaving Murphy to the outside?

How the corner position unfolds is going to be fun to watch, not just who, but where everyone ends up.
