Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: S Rashad Johnson of Alabama was a surprise pick considering the Cardinals are deep at his position. But Johnson had 11 interceptions over the past two years. Free safety Antrel Rolle's contract could escalate next year by more than $5 million. It's good to have alternatives in the event the Cardinals can't re-sign him. A closer look at the Cardinals' picks: Round 3/95 -- Rashad Johnson, S, 5-11, 203, Alabama...A bit of a surprise pick because the Cardinals are deep at safety. But Johnson was too good to pass on. The Cardinals sometimes play three or four safeties in certain dime packages, and Aaron Francisco, the third safety, has struggled in pass coverage. Johnson has excellent ball skills and could contribute immediately. - by The Sports Xchange
