PFF ranks Cardinals’ wide receiver corps 24th in NFL

Aug 1, 2019, 6:00 AM

Over the past few weeks, Pro Football Focus has released a number of offensive and defensive unit rankings.

Their lists include offensive line rankings, pass-rush, run defense and the secondary.

The Cardinals have not been ranked particularly well in the first three categories but were placed as the 6th best secondary in the league.

On Wednesday, the website released its receiving corps rankings heading into 2019. As opposed to a stellar secondary ranking, the Cards’ wide receivers were not ranked as favorably as their secondary defense.

The teams’ receivers were tabbed at 24th on the list.

Despite drafting PFF favorites, the football site doesn’t think the Cardinals can be placed any higher because their young receivers haven’t proved anything at the NFL level yet.

Arizona selected a PFF favorite in the second round of this year’s draft in wide receiver Andy Isabella and also got a steal in the fourth-round in Hakeem Butler, who was pegged as the 42nd-best prospect in this class on the PFF Big Board. Butler and Isabella finished first and second in this year’s class in deep receiving yards, but until their superb college play is seen at the NFL level, the Cardinals receiving unit will remain in the lower tier with veteran Larry Fitzgerald as their only option.

The Philadelphia Eagles received the top spot on PFF’s wide receivers corps ranking.
