The Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings are playing Sunday for the fifth consecutive season.
Both teams have cycled through a few quarterbacks during that time. I covered that ground in the "Blogger Blitz" video.
Cardinals quarterback John Skelton will make his second start of the season and first against the Vikings. He's one of five current Arizona starters from the team's 2010 draft class. The first five players Arizona selected are starting. That includes second-round pick Daryl Washington, who has developed into an elite linebacker and recently signed a long-term extension.
The first chart shows the Cardinals' picks that year.
The second chart shows the Vikings' 2010 class. Minnesota has endured a coaching change since that 2010 draft. That can sometimes affect how players fit.
