The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly looking at making a potential move up in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft. 

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cardinals are "making a lot of noise" about trading up from the No. 15 pick.

Rapoport added the Cardinals' discussions are "about possibly moving up for a quarterback," with the Denver Broncos at No. 5 or Indianapolis Colts at No. 6 as potential trade partners. 

After Carson Palmer retired in January, the Cardinals signed Sam Bradford to a one-year deal as his replacement. 

The oft-injured Bradford is trying to rebuild his value in Arizona. The 30-year-old appeared in just two games last season with the Minnesota Vikings. He set an NFL record with a 71.6 completion percentage in 2016, which New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (72.0) subsequently broke last season. 

The Cardinals are beginning their first season under head coach Steve Wilks. They missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons under Bruce Arians after reaching the NFC Championship Game in 2015.
