Matt Leinart/QB/USC – A great value at No.2 overall, Leinart will challenge for the backup job this season and will be the full time starter by year number three.
Deuce Lutui/G/USC – He should win a backup job this season and then be a starter down the line.
Leonard Pope/TE/Georgia – He's one of six tight ends on the roster but he's the best athlete of all of them and is actually the only one that the Cardinals drafted.
Gabe Watson/DT/Michigan – He'll compete for the No.3 job and should see a lot of playing time as a rookie.
Brandon Johnson/LB/Louisville – Likely a practice squad player.
Jon Lewis/DT/Virginia Tech – Has a shot to win the No.4 defensive tackle job in training camp.
Todd Watkins/WR/BYU – A great value where they got him and should compete for the No.4 or No.5 job in training camp.
San Francisco 49ers
Vernon Davis/TE/Maryland – He'll share time this season with veteran TE Eric Johnson but should see most of the snaps in year two as Johnson is set to become a free agent after this season. Davis will be used inside and outside as a receiver at times to take advantage of matchups and he'll really help their passing game.
Manny Lawson/DE-OLB/North Carolina St. – He should be an immediate starter at outside linebacker and will help their less than stellar pass rush.
Brandon Williams/WR/Wisconsin – Should compete for playing time as their fourth receiver and will add speed to their passing game.
Michael Robinson/QB-RB-WR/Penn St. – He's expected to start out as a running back but could see a variety of roles as the season progresses.
Parys Haralson/DE-OLB/Tennessee – He's expected to see time as a backup at outside linebacker.
Delanie Walker/WR/Central Missouri St. – A long-shot to make the team but could gain a spot on the practice squad.
Marcus Hudson/S/North Carolina St. – Could make the team as a fourth safety.
Melvin Oliver/DE/Louisiana St. – Practice squad candidate.
Vickiel Vaughn/S/Arkansas - Practice squad candidate.
Kelly Jennings/CB/Miami-Fla. – Pretty good shot to start in year one and should be no worse than their nickel back.
Darryl Tapp/DE/Virginia Tech – Will compete for a job as a situational pass rusher. The high-energy end will give them badly needed youth and depth at the position.
Rob Smith/G/Ohio St. – They need some depth at guard so he should make the final roster and be active on game day.
David Kirtman/FB/USC – If they decide to keep two fullbacks on the active roster, he'll make the team.
Ryan Plackemeier/P/Wake Forrest – Will compete for a job against two other punters.
Ben Obomanu/WR/Auburn – Practice squad candidate.
St. Louis Rams
Tye Hill/CB/Clemson – Should compete for a starting job as a rookie and is already the best cover cornerback on their roster.
Joe Klopfenstein/TE/Colorado –Expected to compete for a strong job right away and should win it. He's a pretty good fit for their offense.
Claude Wroten/DT/LSU – While he needs to stay clean off of the field, Wroten could see significant playing time as a rookie and could develop in to a starter down the line.
Jon Alston/LB/Stanford – Could be the successor to veteran WLB Dexter Coakley.
Dominque Byrd/TE/USC – Should back up Klopfenstein and will give them a chance to take advantage of matchups in two tight end sets.
Victor Adeyanju/DE/Indiana – Should see time as their third or fourth end this season and could start down the line.
Marques Hagans/WR/Virginia – Will see time at least as their punt returner but has little chance to play initially at receiver as they're very deep at the position.
Tim McGarigle/LB/Northwestern – Has a chance to win a backup job but most likely will be on the practice squad this season.
Mark Setterstom/G/Minnesota - Has a chance to win a backup job but most likely will be on the practice squad this season.
Tony Palmer/G/Missouri – Practice squad candidate.
