The Arizona Cardinals feel like they drafted the best receiver in the draft. The Cardinals used the No. 4 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft on former Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr.

He is the son of Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison. The receiver played his entire career with the Indianapolis Colts from 1996 through 2008.

On the right side, the Cardinals will have Michael Wilson and Daniel Arias.

The Cardinals only had three receivers, who surpassed 500 receiving yards on the season. Tight end Trey McBride led the team with 825 receiving yards.

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown led the wide receivers with 574 yards. Wilson had 565 yards.

The Cardinals hope that Harrison Jr. and the rest of the draft class will snap the streak of back-to-back 4-13 records. Kyler Murray will get a full season in 2024.

Murray returned late in the season after suffering a torn ACL in December 2022 on Monday Night Football against the New England Patriots.

He played in just eight games. He went 3-5 as a starter. Murray had 1,799 passing yards on the season.

He had 10 touchdown passes and five interceptions.

Harrison Jr. had 67 receptions in his final season at Ohio State in 12 games. He had 1,211 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.

The Cardinals have not had a wide receiver surpass 1,000 receiving yards since the 2020 season. That’s when former Cardinals player DeAndre Hopkins had 1,407 receiving yards in 16 games.
