The Arizona Cardinals got back into the fourth round on Saturday.

The team traded their fifth round selection (160) in the 2021 NFL Draft and next year’s fourth-rounder to the Ravens in exchange for Baltimore’s fourth- (136) and sixth-round (210) picks this year.

With the fourth-round pick, the Cardinals added Florida cornerback Marco Wilson.

The 6-foot, 191-pounder started eight games last season, recording 29 tackles and four pass deflections. In 2019, he was eighth in the SEC with three interceptions.

Listed as a defensive back the past three seasons, Wilson figures to play CB in Arizona.

At Florida’s pro day this offseason, the CB ran a 4.37-second 40-yard dash and a 6.80-second three-cone drill. He also posted 26 bench reps and had a 44-inch vertical.

The trade marks the first on draft-day since 2019 for general manager Steve Keim. He traded quarterback Josh Rosen to the Miami Dolphins for the 62nd overall pick and a 2020 fifth-rounder on Day 2 of that draft.

Keim has now made a trade in seven of his nine drafts as general manager of Arizona. The two exceptions of Keim standing pat came in 2016 and 2020.

As for the trades, five of Keim’s 11 total deals moved the Cardinals up in the order, while four moved them down. Another move was the aforementioned Rosen deal in 2019.

The Cardinals garnered the No. 16 pick after finishing the season 8-8 in Kliff Kingsbury’s second year as head coach.

Arizona now has four more picks remaining in the draft, two in the sixth and a pair in the seventh.
