The Arizona Cardinals announced their initial 53-man roster on Tuesday.

Six wide receivers were listed on the team's initial roster. Receivers Marquise Brown, Zach Pascal and Rondale Moore took starting spots on the Cardinals' depth chart. Brown, a former three-year veteran for the Baltimore Ravens, took second place on Arizona's roster with 709 receiving yards in 2022. Pascal signed a two-year contract with the Cardinals in March after playing for four years with the Indianapolis Colts and one with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Cardinals landed six players off the waiver wire on Wednesday, including safety K'Von Wallace, tight end Elijah Higgins and cornerback Starling Thomas.

“The roster is in flux all of the time,” Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon said, via a Wednesday article from Arizona Cardinals staff writer Zach Gershman. “We're going to try to do what's best for the team, always.

“I think the main thing to note of that is pieces get shuffled around, and pieces move up on game day. It's not just the 53 (active players), it's the practice squad, how many guys are going to get a jersey in Washington, the roles that they serve. There's a lot of things that go into that and our guys know that.”

Who is one sneaky roster cut survivor who could impact the Cardinals in 2023?

Kei'Trel Clark

Clark was selected with the 180th pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Louisville cornerback joined Syracuse cornerback Garrett Williams, LSU edge rusher BJ Ojulari, Auburn linebacker Owen Pappoe and West Virginia defensive tackle Dante Stills in Arizona's 2023 NFL Draft class. Clark ended the 2022 season with 51 tackles, five pass deflections, one interception, four tackles for loss and one sack in the 12 games he played.

Clark played in two games for the Cardinals during the 2023 NFL preseason. He performed well during an 18-17 preseason win over the Denver Broncos, recording three tackles and one pass deflection as the Cardinals took the victory in State Farm Stadium.

“I thought he competed,” Gannon said, via Cardinals Director of Editorial Content Darren Urban. “He was in the right spots with the right technique most of the time that's a tough position out there, that's why those guys get paid a lot of money. It's a hard position. You have heard me say, a 3-technique (lineman) gets cut out, a run goes for 10 yards, no one knows. But if a DB is not perfect, he's on ESPN.”

Clark would play in a total of 73 snaps during the NFL preseason, according to Pro Football Focus. He played in 55 snaps as a wide corner and nine in the box.

Clark joined four other cornerbacks on the Cardinals' initial roster. Cornerbacks Marco Wilson and Antonio Hamilton took starting roles on the team's depth chart. Cornerbacks Christian Matthew and Kris Boyd were also listed on the team's initial roster. Hamilton, a seven-year NFL veteran with four different NFL teams, played in 10 games and started in five for Arizona in 2022. Wilson has played in 28 games and started in 26 for the Cardinals since he was selected with the 136th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Safeties Budda Baker, Jalen Thompson and Jovante Moffatt rounded out the team's options in the secondary. Baker and Thompson led the Cardinals in total tackles with 111 and 110 in 2022, respectively.

Clark will need to carry over the success he saw at Louisville and in the preseason to stand out among the rest of Arizona's cornerback options. If he can, he may have the opportunity to make an early impact for a Cardinals defense that took 24th place in the NFL with 3,915 passing yards allowed, according to
