There are four particular seventh-round NFL Draft picks in Arizona Cardinals history who stand head and shoulders above the rest.

Last weekend, the Arizona Cardinals picked three times during the seventh round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Cornerback Christian Matthew and outside linebacker Jesse Luketa were taken with the first two selections, while guard Marquis Hayes was obtained with the Cards’ final choice.

For the most part, low expectations are placed on players who are drafted in the seventh round. In fact, a good number of those prospects never see action in a regular-season game.

Finding talented youngsters that late in the three-day event is not impossible, however. The following are the four best seventh-round NFL Draft choices in Cardinals history.
