Arizona Cardinals draft picks 2022: Round-by-round selections

USA TODAY

Here is a 2022 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Arizona Cardinals:

Round 2 (No. 55 overall) - Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State: The 2021 All-American and Mackey Award winner as college football’s top tight end is an exceptional possession receiver (91 catches for 1,125 yards last season) who’s also the increasingly rare dual threat able to serve as an effective blocker. Another gift for QB Kyler Murray, McBride will get to learn from vet Zach Ertz in 2022. Draft tracker

Round 3 (87) - Cameron Thomas, DE, San Diego State: Arizona needs to replace Chandler Jones' production, and Thomas (6-4, 267) offered up plenty in 2021 with 10½ sacks and 20½ TFLs. Draft tracker

Round 3 (100, special compensatory, from Ravens) - Myjai Sanders, DE, Cincinnati: More edge help for Arizona, Sanders will probably need to add bulk to his rail-thin 6-5, 228-pound build. Draft tracker
