The Arizona Cardinals have struck gold in the sixth round in each of the last two NFL drafts. They hit it big with running back Andre Ellington last year and cornerback Justin Bethel two years ago. Ellington shows plenty of speed and promise while Bethel is coming off his first Pro Bowl berth.
The Cardinals don’t have a seventh-round pick as of now. That pick belongs to Oakland as part of the Carson Palmer trade from last April. This means Arizona is going to have a different draft strategy, as they’re done after the sixth round.
We’ll take a look at six players who could be a great fit for the team and fill needs that may still be left over after the earlier rounds.
