Arizona Cardinals will play their 89th season with the NFL this year, along with its 21st season in Arizona. The Cardinals finished their 2007 season with a score of 8-8. Far from transcendence but actually a noticeable improvement from 2006 as they finished last place in NFC West with a 5-11 record. This will be the second year of key manager Ken Wisenhunt who began training in 2007. Although last year was not a winning season, management was likely influenced by the speed with which the team improved. Whisenhunt is known for his great offensive games as well as his success at Pittsburgh as an offensive coordinator for this team.
Choosing team drafts will be an important part of predicting the season. Early on, the team was looking to hold some key positions, including offensive tackle, due to the impressive results of Oliver Ross and the loss of Leonard Davis. The midfielder was another important position, as most of the team members playing so far have not been prepared for this role. Cornback was another position the team had to contemplate entering into the 2008 draft. In addition to these needs, the team felt the pressure of history, as the last four drafts were rated excellent and allowed many high-quality beginners and backups.
The team's draft began with Dominic Rodgers-Cromarty, a cornerstone of Tennessee State University. Followed by the defensive end of Calis Campbell of the University of Miami, the early early Doucet of Louisiana State University and Kenny Iwebima were widely received, the defensive end of the University of Iowa. Off the list, Tim Hittower of the University of Richmond was run, defensive finish Chris Harrington of the University of Texas A&M and offensive processing Brandon Keith of the University of Northern Iowa.
What did the media react to Dominique Rodgers Cromarty? Not sure, although he announced the potential of stocks in the first round because of his performance at Senior Paul. Of course, some argue that most of the receivers at Senior Powell miss them. Experts agree that if Rodgers-Cromarty will help the team, he really needs to develop at a rapid pace. At least Rodgers-Cromarty was a popular choice – Campbell was not well tolerated, as he seems to not fit well with Whisenhunt's defense strategies so far. The bottom line is that many drafts of team options must be submitted quickly and quickly developed if they hope to make a difference in Arizona.
The biggest problem is that of these draft options, there are no sure playmakers and this could be a risk the team cannot afford. In addition, they have some intense competition this season against St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks. It should be noted that under the management of Ken Wishnent, the cardinals have already improved their scores; it may not be 8-8 major leagues yet, but it's the team's best record since 1998. Whisenhunt clearly has a strategy in 2008 and the resurrection of the cardinals may begin slowly but surely .
