The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly shown interest in trading down in the 2020 NFL Draft.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Cardinals represent one of the teams expressing interest in trading down from No. 8.

Pelissero added teams in need of an offensive lineman or quarterback could be the ones moving up the draft.

As it stands, the Cardinals possess six picks in this year’s draft.

They have one in the first, third, fifth and sixth rounds. Arizona also has two picks in the fourth round.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim has shown he isn’t afraid to make a deal when it comes to draft picks.

In six of his seven drafts, Keim has made a move. Of those 10 moves made, he’s traded down five times.

With the Cardinals needing to fill more holes, and the price tag for the No. 8 pick could be just what Arizona needs to be more structurally sound throughout.
