ROTB: Picking the Cardinals’ 53 Man Roster: QBs

What could the Arizona Cardinals initial 53-man roster look like for 2023? We start with a look at the quarterbacks.

Would like to give a shout out to ROTB’s very own RedRun who posted his 53 man roster prediction on the B.J. Ojulari analytics thread. He asked me if I would post one of my own. And while I intend to do so a few times between now and August 29th, I thought it would be cool for us to create the Cardinals’ 53 man roster as a team.

Today’s challenge: picking the QBs.

Guidelines:

  1. We are going to assume for now that Kyler Murray come Week 1 of the NFL season will still be on the team’s PUP list (thus, he does not count on the 53 man roster).
  2. With each position group, I am going to make the most educated guess I can as to how many players the Cardinals will keep. In terms of the QB’s, I firmly believe that they will keep 2 on the 53 man roster and 1 on the practice squad.
