2011 NFL Draft Results: Arizona Cardinals Select Robert Housler

The Arizona Cardinals went with a tight end at No. 70, picking Florida Atlantic's Robert Housler in the third round. After taking Patrick Peterson in the first round, the Cardinals have gone with offense in the next two rounds. Ryan Williams was the second round choice, and joins a loaded backfield that includes Beanie Wells and Tim Hightower. Now Housler joins the mix as a safety valve and can provide a blocking presence in the run game.
