The 2023 NFL Draft has come and gone, and each team has been given respective grades on their performances.
Many believe that the Philadelphia Eagles had the best draft, and other teams like the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts were also given high marks.
While the Arizona Cardinals didn’t necessarily make a splash on draft day, their 2024 picks appear to be a bit more promising.
As Sam Monson of PFF has recently highlighted, the Cardinals could have the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the 2024 draft, if things play out in their favor.

Due to trading the No. 3 pick to the Houston Texans this year, the Cardinals acquired the Texans’ 2024 first-rounder.
As Monson indicates, the Texans might not find instant success with C.J. Stroud in his rookie season.
With that in mind, paired with the current state of the Cardinals, they could find themselves with two top picks again in 2024.
If that happens, the Cardinals will be in a prime position to add two blue-chip prospects to their roster.
In the eyes of many analysts, the 2024 draft class is slated to be significantly better than the 2023 class, making the Cardinals’ picks that much more valuable.
The Cardinals haven’t added many big pieces to their roster during the offseason, and could be in line for another down year.
Will the Cardinals find themselves near the top of the draft again in 2024?
