The Arizona Cardinals faced the Seattle Seahawks in Week 18 of the NFL season. With a good draft pick on the line, Arizona ended up winning X-X and earned the X pick in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. The Cardinals also own the Houston Texan’s first-round pick, but with the Texans winning the AFC South, that pick has yet to be determined but is guaranteed to be, at best, No. 19.
Cardinals draft order: 4th pick and a later 1st-round pick
Had Arizona beaten the Seattle Seahawks in Week 18, it likely would have been enough to drop them to the No. 5 pick. Veteran kicker Matt Prater happened to miss the game-winning field goal attempt that resulted in the Cardinals’ loss and clinching of the No. 4 overall pick.
Cardinals mock draft: Potential first-round pick
1.04 Marvin Harrison Jr, WR, Ohio State
It would not be surprising if the top of this draft order radically changes by the time draft day comes around. The Bears could hold tight at No. 1 and take a quarterback or they could move back and bulk up on more draft assets. For now, with no trades being made, Arizona is on the clock at No. 4.
It was reported in Week 18 that the franchise would be sticking with Kyler Murray under center moving forward. If that is indeed the case, the best decision would be to give Murray some extra weapons. Based on mock drafts and this quarterback class being top-heavy, Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. could fall into the laps of Arizona at No. 4. If he is gone ahead of them, LSU WR Malik Nabers is a heck of a consolation prize and would make plenty of sense going at No. 4 if MHJ is off the board.
