Cardinals selected Alabama DL Ed Stinson with the No. 160 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Stinson (6-foot-3 1/4, 287) was a two-year starter at five technique in Nick Saban's 3-4, tallying 15.5 career tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. He was voted second-team All-SEC by the conference's coaches as a senior. Stinson ran 4.98 at Alabama's Pro day with an 8-foot-7 broad jump and 27 reps on the bench. Although Stinson's body type is smallish for a defensive lineman, he has lengthy 33 3/4-inch arms and plays with power. He won't be a high-impact interior rusher, but is hard to move and should be a strong run defender. Sat, May 10, 2014 03:03:00 PM

Alabama DE Ed Stinson (groin) won't participate in the Senior Bowl.

Also pulling out of the game late were Fresno State TE Marcus Jensen (abdominal strain) and Tennessee T Ja'Wuan James (knee). Stinson, who ended his Alabama career with 27 consecutive starts, has been suffering from a lingering groin strain for some time now. "I didn't want to risk it out here," Stinson said Monday. "I could get it better. In the season, I didn't have enough time to sit out." Stinson is likely to hear his name called in the middle rounds.

Draft insider Tony Pauline tagged Alabama senior DE Ed Stinson with a first- or second-round grade heading into the 2013 season.

Pauline says Stinson is a "developing two-gap end who flashes brilliance. Athletic, plays with great lean/leverage and easily makes plays in every direction. Has a burst and can run down tight ends in coverage. Comes with a huge upside." This makes Stinson sound like a more impressive player than former teammate Quinton Dial, who was selected in the fifth-round last April.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah ranked Alabama senior DL Ed Stinson the No. 50 overall player in college football.

"Stinson is blue-collar football player for the Crimson Tide," writes "He doesn't create any wow plays but he's a strong run defender that will appeal to 3-4 teams at the next level. He lacks initial hand and foot quickness but he successfully catches blockers and holds his ground at the point of attack... He is ideally suited as a two-down run defender." The Crimson Tide struggled to generate a pass rush last season, and Stinson would be wise to progress in that area.
