The Arizona Cardinals have a top-10 draft class by draft grade GPA

The Arizona Cardinals had the largest class of the 2024 NFL Draft, selecting 12 players in total. They also had one of the top rated classes.

Based on a calculated grade point average for all NFL teams based on grades from 20 different writers and publications, the Cardinals' draft class is ranked in the top 10.

Ranking the “GPA” of all 32 NFL teams, the Cardinals ranked 6th overall with a GPA of 3.61.


Their grades ranged from A-plus to B-minus.

There's a lot that's good about the Cardinals' draft. Their first choice was receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., who is destined to be a star. Third-round running back Trey Benson is tipped to be a steal, while the third- and fourth-round selections of cornerbacks Max Melton and Elijah Jones prepare them for a starter with Garrett Williams and Sean Murphy-Bunting.

Tight End Pick Reiman looks set to play as the Cardinals' blocking tight end. Dadrion Taylor-Demerson should be their third safety for dime and big nickel defenses.

And that doesn't include their second first-round pick, defensive lineman Darius Robinson, who should be a rotation player on their new-look defensive line.

They still have to prove themselves over the next few months and seasons, but optimism is high for this new draft class.
