    Is it possible that some of the guys on the roster now might be better in that sort of passing game than with what Wilks was wanting to run?

    Maybe not Chad Williams, but it seems to me that guys like JJ Nelson and Pharaoh Cooper, who may not necessarily have great hands on 50-50 balls, might do a lot better getting short screens with room to run.

    Thoughts?

    I thought the same thing. Another thought I had is kingsbury had been around college talent for his entire career. You got to think “everybody” is going to look good to him so he will have to depend on his coordinators to sift through the roster.

    I think Cristian Kirk will love this offense and really shine.

    Kirk's going to be a sleeper FF pick next year.

    I also think DJ will excel in this system as a dual threat RB with an emphasis on more recieving yds.

    It's funny, I was thinking the same.

    1. Will Fitzgerald come back? If so, he fits the TE kind of receiving role at this point in his career.

    2. Christian Kirk should really take off in this offense. He should get multiple wide open receptions in space per game.

    3. Just like this past season, the receiving corps gets dicey after these two. I want to see more of Sherfield. This will probably be the year that the team has seen enough of Williams and Nelson...both should probably not be back. Cooper was a big time YAC guy at South Carolina and also fits this offense much like Kirk does.

    4. I think the team should sign Tyrell Williams. He'll probably take an overpay, but he fits the big, fast outside receiver mold. Adding a veteran who is proven is important, so if you don't get Williams, sign someone who has been productive in the past.

    5. Draft a young guy. If you bring in Tyrell Williams, the Cardinals don't have to spend a higher pick and instead can focus on using a mid rounder on a guy who fits the KK mold.

    Air Raid uses the HB as a receiver often.

    I think that last year's offense and coaching staff made everyone look significantly worse. Will this turn the guys we have into stars? I'd be surprised. I think that Fitz is still a fine starting wideout, and I think that Kirk can be, also. I saw good stuff from Chad Williams.

    I expect J.J. Nelson to go to Cleveland or Tampa Bay. Hard to see him coming back here.

    As for Cooper, he has 0 receptions in 3 NFL seasons. I'm guessing he's almost completely useless in an offense.

    Draft the Oklahoma WR in R2. Perfect for this offense. Cardinal version of Tyreek Hill

    Williams is only 26 . His best football could be in front of him.

    As mentioned above, I think a guy like Tyrell Williams gives us a bigger wr if and when fitz leaves. I also think some quick wr like Beasley, humphrie, or maybe a robby Anderson ( off field issues). Anderson can fly.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if we take a flier on Kevin White, Chicago’s 1st round bust WR.

    He played in a similar offense to KK’s in college under Dana Holgorsen at West Virginia.

    Any interest in Jalen Strong? Big 6'2 wide out. He killed at ASU but never really hung on in NFL. He was released from Jacksonville last April. A bit of a knucklehead (pot arrest) but Id take a flyer for the practice team to see how he does?
