Cards looking Golden

 TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals traded down three spots in the second round, then used the pick to select defensive end/outside linebacker Markus Golden of Missouri.

The Cardinals moved from 55th to 58th overall in a trade with Baltimore, acquiring a fifth-round draft pick from the Ravens (158th overall) in the deal.

The 6-foot-2, 260-pound Golden was a second-team all-SEC selection as a senior. He figures to play outside linebacker in the Cardinals' 3-4 scheme. Golden's fellow Missouri defensive end Shane Ray was drafted by Denver in the first round, the 23rd pick overall.

The trade gives Arizona consecutive picks in the fifth round.  It is the third year in a row that the Cardinals traded down to get an additional selection.
