Ranking each first round player the Arizona Cardinals have selected in the last 6 years.
The Arizona Cardinals have had varying amounts of success in the first round of the draft. Some picks were hits, while many picks were misses. Selections like wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in 2004, safety Antrel Rolle in 2005 and cornerback Dominique Rodger-Cromartie in 2008 have worked out well for the team.
Among the most noticeable misses in the last ten years include defensive tackle Wendell Bryant in 2002, quarterback Matt Leinart in 2006, tackle Levi Brown in 2007 and running back Beanie Wells in 2009. With the deviating degrees of success in mind, let’s rank the Cardinals’ last 5 first round picks.
Note: D.J. Humphries did not play in any regular season or playoff games this season, so he will not be featured on this list.
