In Sunday’s 20-10 win over the 49ers, the star edge-rusher had plenty of company.

The Cardinals racked up five sacks and 16 quarterback hits in the victory, as San Francisco rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard was pressured from all angles.

On the flip-side, the Cardinals’ offensive line won their battle at the line of scrimmage, as quarterback Drew Stanton was hit seven times and wasn’t sacked.

QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma (picked by MMQB’s Peter King): There is growing buzz that Mayfield will go No. 1 overall to the Browns. If that happens, the Cardinals won’t have a shot at him. In King’s mock draft, he has the Cardinals trading up to grab the prolific Sooners signal-caller.

CB Josh Jackson, Iowa (picked by CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco): Another cornerback option to pair with Peterson. Jackson had a phenomenal season in 2017, finishing Sam Acho Jersey with eight interceptions and 27 passes defensed. He didn’t run as fast as Alexander at the combine, and teams must decide whether his strengths can mitigate average speed.

QB Sam Bradford We will see what happens Matt Bryant Jersey with both the Josh Rosen progress in camp and also how Bradford looks health-wise especially when he appears in preseason games. But it’s just hard to see anything but a Bradford-Alex Smith matchup opening day.

Some of the more notable players set to hit the open market include Ziggy Ansah, Adrian Clayborn and Dontari Poe. Muhammad Wilkerson was recently released by the Jets and can sign with a new team at any time. DeMarcus Lawrence is arguably the most talented defensive lineman with an expiring contract but the Cowboys seem likely to retain him.

General Manager Steve Keim has addressed the defensive line multiple times through free agency in past seasons, and there is room to add an impact piece if he desires. Since his arrival, Wilks has harped on the importance of offensive and defensive line strength, so the team figures to study the free agents closely. However, this group weathered the loss of Campbell a year ago and the potential of a step forward from Pierre and Nkemdiche doesn’t seem to make it the utmost priority.
