20. Arizona Cardinals

A draft-day trade brought Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals and they’re going to need him with DeAndre Hopkins starting the season suspended. Brown did catch passes from Kyler Murray at Oklahoma, which will help, and Murray is happy after a drama-filled weekend led to him getting a massive contract.

Now, he has to prove he’s worth the $230 million he landed, and there are questions about that exact topic. Murray has been good but consistency has been a concern and he has yet to top 4,000 yards passing in a single season.

They’ll also be relying heavily on Murray and the offense after Chandler Jones left and they did very little to replace his production.

19. Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings are one of those teams that are just on the cusp. They were 7-9 two years ago followed by 8-9 in 2021. They seem like a team that should have been better with stars such as Justin Jefferson, Dalvin Cook, and Daniele Hunter under contract.

Of course, many will blame Kirk Cousins, but he’s been solid with 16,387 yards and an impressive 124-to-36 touchdown-to-interception ratio over the past four seasons for Minnesota.

With a new coaching staff, they hope to finally reach their potential. They have the talent to be a winning team, but we need to see it all put together.
