After analyzing the Arizona Cardinals’ new top trio of offensive players compared to the field, Arizona Sports’ Doug & Wolf move to the defensive side of the ball.

The rules this time around: The trio must include a player on the line of scrimmage, another from the second-level and a third from the secondary.

That means outside linebacker Chandler Jones, inside linebacker Jordan Hicks and cornerback Patrick Peterson represent the Cardinals.

So did Arizona make the top-5 cuts for Doug Franz, Ron Wolfley and Paul Calvisi? Listen to the trio’s pick of trios and see which teams made their lists below.

Doug

5. Bears (Khalil Mack, Roquan Smith, Kyle Fuller)
4. Vikings (Danielle Hunter, Eric Kendricks, Anthony Harris)
3. Saints (Cam Jordan, Demario Davis, Marshon Lattimore)
2. Cardinals (Chandler Jones, Patrick Peterson, Jordan Hicks)
1. Rams (Aaron Donald, Leonard Floyd, Jalen Ramsey)

Wolf
5. Rams (Aaron Donald, Leonard Floyd, Jalen Ramsey)
4. Saints (Cam Jordan, Demario Davis, Marshon Lattimore)
3. Eagles (Fletcher Cox, Nathan Gerry, Darius Slay)
2. Bears (Khalil Mack, Roquan Smith, Kyler Fuller)
1. 49ers (Fred Warner, Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman)

Paul
5. Seahawks (Bobby Wagner, Bruce Irvin, Shaquill Griffin)
4. Cardinals (Chandler Jones, Patrick Peterson, Jordan Hicks)
3. 49ers (Fred Warner, Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman)
2. Bears (Khalil Mack, Roquan Smith, Kyler Fuller)
1. Rams (Aaron Donald, Leonard Floyd, Jalen Ramsey)
