Talib's troubles make Cardinals appear wise - NFC West Blog - ESPN
The Arizona Cardinals went into the 2008 NFL draft needing a cornerback. It's increasingly clear they made the right choice in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie even though the one-time Pro Bowl choice is coming off a disappointing 2010 season.

Former Bulldogs star Andre Roberts paves way for Citadel prospects | The Post and Courier, Charleston SC - News, Sports, Entertainment
Andre Roberts was not in attendance Monday at The Citadel's pro day for NFL scouts, but his presence was definitely felt. The success of the ex-Bulldogs standout, who just finished his rookie season as a wide receiver with the Arizona Cardinals, was one reason scouts from 15 NFL teams turned out on a cold, rainy day to watch some of Roberts' former Citadel teammates go through their paces.

More evidence Cards not taking QB early - NFC West Blog - ESPN
The Arizona Cardinals could be blowing smoke when they suggest the 2011 NFL draft lacks elite, well-rounded quarterback prospects at the top. I think they're being honest. There isn't a quarterback generating the feelings Sam Bradford generated as the No. 1 overall choice last year.
