|Player||Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee State|
|Pick||Round 1, Selection 16 (16 Overall)|
|Stats||Ht: 6-1.5 Wt: 183 40: 4.47|
|The Cardinals selected Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie with the 16th overall pick. The Cardinals opted to go with the best ball-hawker on the board. He will replace Antrel Rolle who Arizona announced will move to safety next season. The Cardinals corners combined for just 11 interceptions last season and five were Rolle's. If Rodgers-Cromartie plays anything like his cousin he should be able to match that number by himself. - Amberly Richardson - AzRedReport.com|
|Arizona was going to select either a running back or cornerback with this selection. With the team moving Antrel Rolle to safety, cornerback became a major need for the defense. Rodgers-Cromartie has a ton of upside but is also a bit raw while still being very athletic.|
