For now, the Cards find themselves still in the top 10. The possible addition of one more player to this year’s class or the possible departure of Deng Adel could have an impact on the final preseason poll.

I was a little off. Here is a chart from NFL.com of the Cards drafted in the last 4 years. Read the rest of this entry
