The Cardinals have gone from drafting as early as 21st to drafting no earlier than 31st after advancing to the Super Bowl.
Consider it a small price to pay for the first Super Bowl berth in franchise history.
The chart shows the 2009 draft order and the criteria used to determine said order. In the case of trades, the criteria applies to teams that originally held the choice.
I'm listing the Cardinals at 31st instead of 32nd because their regular-season record would entitle them to draft higher than the Steelers.
