The Arizona Cardinals have a very talented receiving room coming into the 2022-2023 season. There are a lot of things that are up in the air with this team like if Kyler Murray will be their starting quarterback coming into the year. Whoever is under center for Arizona this year will have a plethora of weapons at their disposal at the wide receiver position.

Deandre Hopkins

Deandre Hopkins is by far the top receiver on the Cardinals and one of the best receivers of this era. Although he is beginning to regress due to age, he is still near the top of his position.

It is clear that he will be coming back with a vengeance once his suspension is up and could have an incredible tail end of the year. 

A.J. Green

A.J. Green is another player that is a bit past his prime on the Cardinals receiving core. Despite being a little over the hill, Green is still a very quality starting receiver. Green being a likely third option in the Cardinals receiving core once Hopkins returns speaks to the depth and quality they have at this suspension. He is still an elite vertical threat and a lethal weapon for a quarterback like Murray.

Marquise Brown

Marquise Brown is a new pickup for the Cardinals. He was acquired in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens during the draft. This could end up being a career year for Brown. Going from a run-heavy offense to a pass-centric gameplan in Arizona will do amazing things for his receiving stats. Along with this, Murray is a much better passer than Lamar Jackson. 

Rondale Moore

Rondale Moore is a player with a tremendous amount of upside. Barring any injuries, he will not see the field as much as he probably should once Hopkins returns to action. He only started in half of the games last season, however, when he was on the field he showed a lot of potential to be a great pass catcher for the Cardinals for years to come.

Antonie Wesley

Antonie Wesley is another receiver who will not get a chance to see the field much this season despite how bright at times his future looked with the team last season. Last year, he started in
