Since training camp started, there has been plenty of talk about the depth the Arizona Cardinals possess at the wide receiver position.
The 2014 Cardinals pass-catching corps features a probable Hall-of-Famer in Larry Fitzgerald, a former first-round pick in Michael Floyd and a rookie who caught four game-winning touchdown passes in John Brown.
Few teams can boast that type of top-line depth in three-wide receiver sets.
Pro Football Focus agrees. The popular analytics website ranked the NFL’s top ten receiving corps, accounting for the top three receivers and the top tight end. The Cardinals ranked eighth on their list.
Now that Larry Fitzgerald is about to celebrate his 32nd birthday, the Cardinals don’t have one clear No. 1 wide receiver, but they have more depth than most teams. Michael Floyd had 482 deep receiving yards and five deep touchdowns which were both among the top eight for wide receivers. John Brown had 696 receiving yards, which was second-most of all receivers who were third on the depth chart last year.
The Indianapolis Colts topped the website’s rankings, followed by the Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots. The Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks trailed the Cardinals on the list.
