Day 3 wish list for Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals enter Day 3 of the NFL draft with five selections. There are a number of players who would make nice fits for them.
At the time of publication, a couple players who would have been on my wish list for Arizona got drafted right at the top of the fourth round — Old Dominion OL Nick Saldiveri, Georgia CB Kelee Ringo, Maryland CB Jakorian Bennett.
Below are the players I hope the Cardinals get on Day 3.
