Four days before the regular-season opener, Andre Roberts remains listed as a starter on the outside. The Cardinals list Michael Floyd as a backup. Undrafted rookie LaRon Byrd has arguably outperformed Floyd to this point. It's early -- far too early to worry about Floyd -- but the Cardinals' plans for Floyd and Roberts might not take full effect in Week 1.
It's safe to say that the Cardinals were expecting more from a player they picked #13 overall. In the final 9 games of 2011, Roberts posted 38-453-2 which projects to 68-805-3.6 (WR33 numbers in PPR).
