As per last year, I’ll be sharing projections for every team in the NFL. I use past production in specific roles for each team’s scheme to work out realistic production profiles. You can see how accurate I was in 2017 in my IDP Projection Marking series.
The Cardinals have undergone an off-season of transition. Carson Palmer and Bruce Arians are gone with Steve Wilks taking over as head coach. He’s brought Al Holcomb along with him and it seems like we’ll see a wholesale transplant of the Panthers’ defensive scheme in the desert.
That scheme has been very effective in recent years (including a Super Bowl visit after a 15-1 season) so hopefully the defense won’t suffer too much. It will look extremely different after years of blitz-heavy Todd Bowles and James Bettcher schemes but with a period of adjustment and adaptation, it should still be high quality.
