Cardinals general manager Monti Ossenfort’s first pick of his Arizona tenure was Ohio State offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. after a pair of draft-day trades on Thursday.

Arizona dealt No. 3 to the Houston Texans for No. 12 and more assets, including a 2024 first-rounder. The Cardinals used No. 12 and a second-rounder to move back up to No. 6 in a deal with the Detroit Lions.

The Cardinals entered the draft with eight at their disposal with five in Rounds 1-4. They had seven after the trade with Detroit but kept the deals coming, ending with nine selections and more picks in 2024

Arizona picked up an additional first-round pick and two third-round picks for next year.

Before the draft started, the Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles swapped third-round picks in a tampering settlement after Ossenfort contacted new head coach Jonathan Gannon following the NFC Championship Game, according to a joint statement.

Arizona went down from No. 66 to No. 94 but added a 2024 fifth-rounder.
