Mel Kiper Has Arizona Cardinals Selecting D'Brickashaw Ferguson In 2006 NFL Re-Draft

Everyone's been looking forward toward the 2012 NFL Draft. Mel Kiper has been moving back to look at the 2006 NFL Draft and seeing who each team should've drafted based on their level of performance since arriving in the league. Obviously there are a lot of under-the-radar guys that probably ended up being drafted a lot higher than their original picks, but there's also plenty of first round blue chip talent that panned out quite alright.

The Arizona Cardinals end up with a conventional pick as they take someone who had originally been taken much higher in their draft. D'Brickashaw Ferguson was an offensive tackle tackle that was drafted with the 4th pick, and there's no doubt he's done well with the New York Jets, but he apparently falls down to the 10th pick here as there were nine other players who've outperformed him in the pros. The Jets end up taking Tamba Hali instead as a game-changer on defense.
