NFL Draft Results: Arizona Cardinals Sneak Michael Floyd From St. Louis Rams, Score High Draft Grades

This one hurt: Let the 2012 NFL Draft results records show that the St. Louis Rams were pipped on not just one but two wide receiver prospects, losing out on Justin Blackmon at No. 6 and then, having traded down to No. 14, watching the Arizona Cardinals snag Michael Floyd at No. 13. Early draft grades show high marks for the Cardinals, who got Floyd and also managed to protect Kevin Kolb with Bobby Massie all the way down at No. 112, a pick WalterFootball loved.

Here's how the rest of their draft shook out:

No. 80: Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma
No. 151: Senio Kelemte, G, Washington
No. 177: Justin Bethel, S, Presbyterian
No. 185: Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State
No. 221: Nate Potter, OL, Boise State

Like the Rams, the Cardinals needed a lot of offensive line help. Unlike the Rams, they seem to have gotten a lot of it.
