The Arizona Cardinals followed Larry Fitzgerald’s wishes and drafted fellow Minnesotan Michael Floyd in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Floyd should make an instant impact as a strong, big bodied number two receiver facing single coverage across from Fitzgerald.
One of the knocks on Floyd is his route running skills but he is going to the desert to learn under one of the best route runners in the NFL.

A quick note to members of the class asking them to fire over a heads up upon their arrival in Pullman has yielded an outpouring of missives as the young guns descend on Pullman for the start of summer class and...
The Cardinals have never been ones to focus on the tight end in their offense, but times are changing. The tight end has become a focal point of offenses all across the league and the Cardinals no longer have quite the outside wide receiver talent that they had in years past when they had Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin in their primes. They used a 3rd round pick on a tight end...
