Arizona Cardinals nab Dee Ford with 23rd pick

The Arizona Cardinals tabbed Auburn defensive end/outside linebacker Dee Ford as their first-round pick.

Ford was a terror off the edge for a resurgent Tigers team that won 12 games after winning just 3 in 2012. That was the same year Ford was on his was to having a great season. He started 7 of 11 games at DE, totaling 34 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and six sacks with a batted pass and forced fumble and blocked a field goal, but suffered an abdominal injury that hindered him the second-half of the season.

Ford exploded in 2013 with 10.5 sacks to go with 14.5 tackles-for-loss.
