Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Arizona Cardinals fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.
After their surprising third win of the season, let’s be honest no one saw the Arizona Cardinals beating either the Pittsburgh Steelers or Dallas Cowboys this season, the Cardinals sit with the third pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
That begs the question, do they end up with a top five pick in the 2024 NFL Draft?
Now, before semantics come into play, the question really is, will the Arizona Cardinals own draft pick be in the top five or out of the top five when the draft order is set after the season. Not will they trade in or out of the top five.
So, so you think the Arizona Cardinals end up with a top five pick after the 2023 season is over?
This question really boils down to, will the Arizona Cardinals beat the Chicago Bears in a head-to-head matchup in two and a half weeks time?
If the Cardinals win, they will almost certainly be picking outside the top five, with how bad the other teams with four wins have been playing. The Cardinals would be one of six teams with four wins and their strength of schedule would be the highest, meaning they are penalized for playing the hardest schedule in the league.
If they lose, they may be able to beat the Seattle Seahawks, but it seems likely they’ll end up picking third with three wins.
So, what do you say, Arizona Cardinals fans?
