After analyzing the Arizona Cardinals’ new top trio of offensive players compared to the field, Arizona Sports’ Doug & Wolf move to the defensive side of the ball.

The rules this time around: The trio must include a player on the line of scrimmage, another from the second-level and a third from the secondary.

That means outside linebacker Chandler Jones, inside linebacker Jordan Hicks and cornerback Patrick Peterson represent the Cardinals.
