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. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, 2004 -- A sure-fire Hall of Famer, Fitzgerald is widely considered the best player in franchise history.
2. Simeon Rice, DE, 1996 -- He quickly established himself as one of the top ends in the NFL and continued on a torrid pace throughout his career while taking home four All-Pro nods and three Pro Bowl selections.
3. Patrick Peterson, CB, 2011 -- In his first three seasons, Peterson has been named to the Pro Bowl all three years and an All-Pro twice, while becoming one of the best match-up corners in the league.
4. Michael Floyd, WR, 2012 -- In just his second season Floyd became a 1,000-yard receiver and a formidable option across from Larry Fitzgerald.
5. David Boston, WR, 1999 -- Boston's best years in the NFL were spent in Arizona, where he became a Pro Bowl receiver.
