Draft week is upon us in the National Football League. The most talked about happening in the sports world will unfold over a three-day period in New York this weekend.
Once again, the Arizona Cardinals find themselves drafting in the top ten. This year’s seventh overall selection marks the 16th time in their 26 drafts that they’re selecting in the top ten. And yes, if you’re wondering, that’s the most in the league since 1988.
There have been some forgettable top ten selections made by the Cardinals, as my colleague Dave Dulberg has pointed out. But the Cards deserve some credit as well — they’ve made some pretty good top ten picks too.
Here’s my list of the top 5 best Cardinals’ top ten draft picks of all-time (say that five times fast!)
