An opposing scout's view
"This will be an ugly year for Arizona. The defensive line is weak. The tackles, Wendell Bryant and Russell Davis, shouldn't be starting in the NFL. Too much will be asked of Calvin Pace, a first-rounder most teams saw as a late second-rounder at best....
The Cardinals are solid at linebacker, but Ronald McKinnon was slipping by the end of last year....
The only bright spot will be the offensive line—Leonard Davis is a beast at right guard, and L.J. Shelton finally looked like a player last year at left tackle. At center, Frank Garcia will be an upgrade over Mike Gruttadauria....
They will regret letting all those wide receivers go, especially David Boston. He was their only real threat on offense. Taking Bryant Johnson in the first round was a real reach, and he might get beaten out by some guy named Jason McAddley....
Having to watch Emmitt Smith every week will be sad. You'll wonder: Why did he sign with this team?...
They're probably the worst team in pro football."
