The Arizona Cardinals are in a prime position to be able to trade down in the draft, if they choose to do so. It seems evident now that the Minnesota Vikings are looking to trade up into that top 5 to grab a quarterback.

The Cardinals sit with the 4th and 27th pick in the first round of the draft. If they do decide to trade down with the Vikings, they could likely have three first-round picks. In a class that is as top-heavy as this one is, it may be a great move for the Cardinals.

By “top-heavy” I mean that the class is filled with superstar quality players at the very top of the draft, but overall the class is not as deep in most position groups to be able to bargain shop efficiently in the later rounds. Offensive tackle and wide receiver would be the exception to the shallow claim. 

However, wide receiver is a position the Cardinals are likely targeting, and in a class as deep as this one, it would make sense for them to try and trade out and get a haul for that fourth pick. Especially when you consider that a quality receiver will likely be available with their 27th pick.
