The Cardinals didn’t get the quarterback they wanted.

But they found a guy with the 13th pick who could make an immediate impact on their defense.

The Cardinals watched three passers go before them, and selected Temple linebacker Haason Reddick.

Reddick was a fast-riser late in the draft process, and his ability as a pass-rusher will help a defense which needed reinforcements after losing five starters in free agency, including defensive end Calais Campbell, safety Tony Jefferson and linebacker Kevin Minter.
