Five best Cards' picks: 2nd round

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.

5. Frank Sanders, WR, 1995 -- One of the best receivers in team history, Sanders set the table as the standard for Larry Fitzgerald.
