Five Arizona Cardinals draft picks who excelled in other cities: Player #5: Ken Harvey, LB
And finally, we got Ken Harvey, who the Phoenix Cardinals drafted 12th overall in 1988. Harvey played in the desert for six seasons and was no bust. In three of his six seasons with the team, he logged at least nine sacks and tallied 99 or more tackles twice. But, his career took off when he signed with Washington in 1994.
During his time in D.C., Harvey earned four Pro Bowl selections and was twice voted Second Team All-Pro. However, his first season in Washington was perhaps his most memorable, as he compiled 13.5 sacks and 98 tackles. And despite the team’s struggles in the mid and late 1990s, the artists now known as the Commanders did have one bright spot in Harvey.
