45. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
The Cardinals first round draft pick in 2008 didn’t stay around long. He was expected to be better than what he did but he still was a good choice for the Cardinals during their Super Bowl run. He had 13 interceptions and four touchdowns in his three seasons in Arizona from 2008-2010.
44. Seth Joyner
Here is an other guy that only lasted three seasons in Arizona from 1994-1996. However short his time was here, he sure made an impact. He had 12 sacks and seven interceptions during his time with the Cardinals.
43. Stump Mitchell
He did most of his damage in St. Louis but he still was a force in the Cardinals initial season in Arizona in 1988. He rushed for 726 yards that season and four touchdowns. He also caught 25 passes and one touchdown that season as well. He finished his career in 1989 in Arizona, playing just three games. He came back to the Cardinals in 2013 as an assistant coach under Bruce Arians.
42. Al Del Greco
He played for the Cardinals for three seasons in Arizona from 1988-1990. During that time he was 47-74 in field goals and 98-101 in extra points. He may be best remembered in Arizona for his Monday Night Football failed fake field goal against the Dallas Cowboys though in the season and franchise opener for the Cardinals in Arizona.
41. Tim Hightower
He played for the Cardinals for three seasons from 2008-2010. He gained just 1,734 yards in those three seasons but he was mainly known as a goal-line specialist. He scored 23 touchdowns as a Cardinals running back in those three seasons. Pretty impressive for someone not many people knew about before he came to Arizona.
