The Arizona Cardinals are undergoing a roster transformation or a rebuild with younger players. However, their young talent of players who have not yet reached 25 years of age is not elite, according to Pro Football Focus.
PFF ranked the 25 best players in the NFL under 25 years old entering the season and Arizona did not have a single player mentioned.
Arizona’s best players, quarterback Kyler Murray and safety Budda Baker, are not included. Murray is now 25 and Baker 27.
Isaiah Simmons is 24 and is the team’s best under-25 player.
He has been good so far in his career, although he has not been great.
Both he and Zaven Collins could prove to be very good this season but both will be 25 next year.
Perhaps the best shot of a Cardinals player making this list in 2024 is rookie tackle Paris Johnson, who is 22 years old entering his first NFL season. The sixth overall pick hopefully makes that list in the next couple of years.
