While Arizona Cardinals’ fans are focused on their team’s most recent draft, previous drafts make big impacts.

In 2010, the Cardinals drafted Pro Bowler Daryl Washington and speedy receiver Andre Roberts, in addition to starting nose tackle Dan Williams. FanSided’s With the First Pick graded Arizona’s 2010 draft with complex methods in a post grading the NFC West’s draft. The post used value to determine how much Arizona’s picks helped the team.

Recently, the Cardinals have done a fairly good job in the draft. In 2010, Arizona obtained two solid players in Washington and Roberts, two players who could become key cogs in Arizona for years to come. The Cardinals added some nice value picks in 2010, and they were recognized in this post with some good grades. Some players, such as John Skelton, haven’t performed as well as Arizona would have liked, but others have exceeded expectations.
