Cardinals Wide Receiver unit analysis

Starters - Larry Fitzgerald, Brice Butler. Backups - J.J. Nelson, Christian Kirk, Chad Williams, Greg Little, Carlton Agudosi, Rashad Ross, Corey Willis, C.J. Duncan, Jalen Tolliver, Trent Sherfield.

Unlike the tight ends, there is plenty of depth to like among Arizona's receiving corps. The problem is, there isn't really a trusted, signature-type player the team can truly count upon beyond Fitzgerald, who turns 35 in the fall and could be playing his last season. Butler and Little could provide some veteran stability, but neither has shined for any sort of length of time at any point in their careers. Kirk could be the ultimate target, based on his skills and potential. Nelson has the chops, but needs to prove he's more than just a deep threat who can catch half the passes thrown his way. Williams is the real wild-card here, but he'll have to up his game and his commitment significantly to get a legitimate shot.
