Cardinals select Temple linebacker Haason Reddick with 13th pick

The Arizona Cardinals selected Temple linebacker Haason Reddick with the 13th pick in Thursday's NFL draft.

The former walk-on rose from obscurity to become one of the most coveted defensive players in the draft. He would bring his aggressiveness and quickness to an inside linebacker spot in Arizona 3-4 defense.

At 6-foot-1, 237 pounds, Reddick is undersized by NFL standards but not for Arizona's system.
