For the seven days leading up to Thursday's first round of the NFL draft, ESPN Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss will rank the team's five best draft picks from each round -- seventh to first -- dating back 1994, when the NFL draft went to its current seven-round format.
1. Jake Plummer, QB, 1997 -- A hometown favorite, Plummer started his pro career in his collegiate stadium all while leading the Cards to the playoffs for the first time in Arizona.
2. Anquan Boldin, WR, 2003 -- One of the most important pieces to the Cardinals' run to Super Bowl XLIII, Boldin established himself as a tough, gritty receiver.
3. Karlos Dansby, LB, 2004 -- Dansby progressively improved throughout his career and was a major cog on the Cards' defense during its Super Bowl run.
4. Calais Campbell, DE, 2008 -- Quickly emerging as the future of the Cardinals' defensive line, Campbell has emerged as one of the elite yet underappreciated run stoppers in the game.
