The Arizona Cardinals have been around for 124 years. So who are the best 15 draft picks in team history?

Yes, the first NFL Draft wasn’t held until 1936. The Arizona Cardinals are the oldest team in the league, and despite their losing record as a franchise, they’ve had their share of great players.

One would think that a team that’s lost 200 more games than they’ve won wouldn’t work out as such. The exact opposite played out in the making of the list.

There have been many good players, and making this list was a challenging process. Trying to account for their own generations’ accomplishments while considering their impact when viewed today in an entirely different era.

These Cardinals players are remembered by fans of the team, but for some reason, they don’t come across the mind of other fans. Hopefully, this article will show just how good these former Cardinals were. Let’s start with the 15th-best draft pick in Arizona Cardinals history.
