A lot has been made about the Arizona Cardinals’ No. 4 overall pick this NFL Draft.

With a top five pick, Arizona can add a generational talent like Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. or any of the other top pass-catching prospects. It could also move off the pick completely to stockpile additional picks.

But while fourth pick is getting a lot of the attention, the Cardinals have another chance at altering the franchise with the 27th overall pick acquired last draft in a trade with the Houston Texans.

A look at what draft analysts are thinking when it comes to Arizona’s second first-round lottery ticket:
