Cardinals' Rudy Ford: Beginning career as outside corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford is expected to begin his career as an outside cornerback, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

A safety during his time at Auburn, Ford will work as an outside CB, with the versatility to log time at safety, nickel corner and as a special teamer. The Cardinals currently have a question mark opposite Patrick Peterson as the other starting cornerback, where veteran Justin Bethel is the leader in the clubhouse. However, injuries and circumstance haven't allowed Bethel consistent run in the role, affording Ford and 2016 third-round pick Brandon Williams an opportunity as well.

Cardinals' Rudy Ford: Headed to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals selected Ford in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 208th overall.

The former Auburn Tiger was the team's leading tackler in 2014 and 2015 and will bring toughness to the back end of the Cardinal defense. He also has the athleticism to return kicks, but the Cardinals' addition of T.J. Logan likely nixes that possibility. Arizona's depth in the secondary, including the addition of Budda Baker in the draft, makes Ford a long shot to see regular playing time as a rookie.
