08:05 AM ET 03.29 | After Larry Fitzgerald, who's the No. 2 in Arizona? With WR Early Doucet recently signing a new two-year deal after a far more productive 2011 campaign than Andre Roberts, the Cardinals' designated No. 2 wide receiver, we hear it would be a mistake to automatically assume Doucet is the early favorite for the No. 2 role next season over Roberts. "Formation-wise, he's still a No. 3," a daily team observer said of Doucet. ... As for Roberts, despite struggling early and being very sporadic in 2011, word is he remains the Cardinals' No. 2 WR, at least for the time being. "I think the coaches feel the quarterbacks last season just didn't look Andre's way enough, especially (Kevin) Kolb," the observer said.

None of the receivers are in a good position considering who is throwing the ball.
