The Cardinals, for the first time in a few seasons, won't be picking in the top 10. But choosing in the dead center of the first round doesn't mean a good player can't be found -- the last time, in fact, the Cardinals had the 16th pick of the first round, they selected future Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
The top wide receiver in NFL history, Jerry Rice, was also the 16th pick of the first round, back in 1985. In 1982, the Cardinals selected three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Luis Sharpe at that spot.
With the Cardinals scheduled to pick 16th in the opening round of the draft on April 29, here's a look back at the players who were chosen No. 16 overall in the last 20 years.
Just last year, No. 16 was spent on a cornerback. Terrell had a solid rookie season and posted an interception, although he was targeted often (no surprise for a first-year player) and has room to improve.
Burns has emerged as a rising pass rushing star, totaling 10 sacks for Carolina in 2020.
As well as Buffalo played in 2020, Edmunds' play dropped from his sophomore season as he struggled against both run and pass.
Another cornerback at 16, Humphrey has emerged as one of the best in the NFL.
Decker has been a fixture at left tackle for the Lions for a few years and has played well during his time.
Johnson had injuries to end his time in Houston and has bounced from Buffalo to Cleveland to now Tennessee since.
Martin has proved to be a perennial all pro-level lineman since the day he was selected. Six All-Pro selections in eight seasons makes for a spectacular No. 16 pick.
A reach when he was selected, Manuel never found his footing and was out of football by 2018.
Coples had 16.5 sacks his first three seasons but never fulfilled his promise as a pass rusher and was out of the league after just four years.
Kerrigan has 95.5 sacks in his career and missed only four games in his 10 seasons, reaching four Pro Bowls.
Morgan never was a star, but he lasted nine years with the Titans coming off the edge as both end and outside linebacker, totaling 44.5 sacks.
Injuries and lack of production submarined English, who only played double-digit games three times in six season and only had 12 sacks as a pass rusher.
The last time the Cardinals were at No. 16 they took a cornerback, getting a hit with DRC -- who had 13 interceptions and made a Pro Bowl in three Arizona seasons before being traded for QB Kevin Kolb. DRC played 12 seasons with 30 picks.
Harrell was a complete bust, playing only 14 games in three seasons and never notching a sack.
Playing both safety and cornerback, Allen had 15 interceptions in 98 games for three NFL teams.
Johnson never quite found the groove, serving as depth most of his career with three sacks in 76 games over six seasons.
Andrews was named All-Pro one season and got to two Pro Bowls, but injuries derailed his career after just six seasons.
Hall of Famer who reached eight Pro Bowls and made All-Pro four times, with 32 interceptions, 12 sacks and a way of influencing every game with which he was involved.
Decent rookie year (887 yards, 6 TDs) but it was downhill from there and he was out of the league after four seasons.
Four times a 1,000-yard receiver, he fully blossomed after moving to Washington after his first four Jets seasons, he had 732 catches for 10,283 yards and 66 touchdowns over 14 years.
