Cardinals Fielding Offers for No. 4 Pick in 2024 NFL Draft

With the 2024 NFL draft just over one month away, rumors and reports about potential trades are ramping up. One team at the center of such conversations is the Arizona Cardinals, who possess the No. 4 pick in April’s draft.

Arizona general manager Monti Ossenfort confirmed the team is “open for business” in terms of fielding offers for its first-round pick, and he expects trade conversations to pick up at the annual league meetings, which take place March 24-27.

“I think we’ll always have the conversation,” Ossenfort said, via NFL Network’s Grant Gordon. “We may not get to a point where a deal makes sense, whether it’s at [No.] 4 or anywhere we’re picking, but we’re always going to have the conversation, and if it makes sense, if it’s attractive to building our team, then it’s something that we’ll certainly consider no matter where we’re at in the draft.”

Ossenfort said trade inquiries have started to pick up recently, but he doesn’t believe conversations will intensify until the week of the draft.

Arizona was extremely active in last year’s draft, making five deals, and currently sits in one of the most intriguing positions based on the incoming draft class. There’s a realistic scenario where the top three players selected are all quarterbacks, with USC’s Caleb Williams, LSU’s Jayden Daniels, and UNC’s Drake Maye all drawing considerable interest.

If the top three picks feature three signal-callers, the Cardinals’ pick could attract a high level of trade interest. Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy’s stock has been on the rise, and this scenario also could drive interest from teams targeting a top wide receiver, such as Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr. and LSU’s Malik Nabers.
