6th - Kei’Trel Clark, CB

Kei’Trel Clark started part-time in 2023 and he also saw a lot of time on special teams, the latter of which may be his niche in the NFL. As with Pappoe, contributions on special teams isn’t the worst result in the world for a late-round selection, so he at least brings value.

5th - Garrett Williams, CB

Garrett Williams receives a middle-of-the-road ranking because he missed a significant portion of the season. But when he was healthy enough to play, he showed sound potential as a CB2, allowing an average 85.7 quarterback rating and 8.7 yards per reception. 

4th - BJ Ojulari, EDGE

While BJ Ojulari didn’t impress in the sack column, logging just 4.0 this season, he still had 20 total pressures with 11 hurries and five hits to go with his number of sacks. He did more than enough to show that he can be a mainstay in the Arizona Cardinals brewing pass rush rotation.
