The Arizona Cardinals are entering an absolutely crucial season. They have one more season of quarterback Kyler Murray's rookie deal, which means general manager Steve Keim will have to shell out an absolutely huge amount of money soon. It's hard to win when a big percentage of the payroll is dedicated to one player, which is why 2022 is so important for the Cardinals. Arizona has made some moves to push its roster toward contention, but there's still plenty of work to do after the 2022 NFL Draft.


With that being said, here are two moves the Cardinals must make to complete their roster with the draft in the rearview mirror.

Cardinals Moves After 2022 NFL Draft

2. Sign Kevin King

While Kevin King isn't exactly the most popular cornerback in football, he would be a nice addition to the Cardinals. He's only 27 years old and his reputation was ruined by a couple of bad games. He's certainly not a top-tier guy at the position, but he's far from a terrible player. It helps that King is still relatively young. He has plenty of potential for improvement, especially if he's out of the spotlight that has torched him in the past.

Signing King also addresses a massive position of need. Arizona will likely start Byron Murphy Jr. and Marco Wilson at cornerback in 2022. Besides those guys, there's little on the depth chart to be excited about. Jeff Gladney is a first-round bust who hasn't played well in his entire career. Breon Borders is the other backup, and he doesn't exactly have an impressive body of work himself. Neither of those guys can be counted on to play well. Entering the season without decent backups at one of the most important positions on the field is a recipe for disaster.

King could also provide a potential future solution at the position. Murphy is the only established player Arizona has at cornerback right now. Wilson played fairly well in his rookie year, but there's no guarantee that he turns into a long-term solution. King is far from a sure thing, but he would provide another option at a position where you can never have enough of them.

1. Sign Daryl Williams

It's shocking that Williams is still on the market. The right tackle played fantastic football for the Buffalo Bills in 2021, as he only allowed three sacks on the season. He's a good offensive lineman in a league that has a scarcity of those. Arizona would be making a misstep if it continues its offseason without giving Williams a call.

Williams would also give the Cardinals depth at a crucial position. It's unlikely that he would unseat Kelvin Beachum as the starting right tackle, but it's not impossible. Even if he doesn't, Williams would still provide depth all across the offensive line. He has experience playing guard and could easily switch to left tackle if need be. Arizona has a distinct lack of depth at guard, so Williams would be huge in that regard. The former Bill could even give Will Hernandez some competition at right guard, as Williams has been a much better lineman over the last couple of seasons.

Overall, signing Williams seems like a slam dunk, especially if he's willing to cut the Cardinals a deal.
