Golden burst onto the scene in 2016 with a team-leading 12.5 sacks, which is quite the feat on a defense that rosters premier pass rusher Chandler Jones. The follow-up was less than ideal, though. Golden didn't make a mark in the sack department through the first three games of last season before tearing his ACL in Week 4. In the aftermath of a lost campaign, he enters the final year of his rookie contract but is still contained to a running program as of mandatory minicamp in mid-June.

  2. Markus Golden 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Golden tapped into the potential that spurred the Cardinals to nab him in the second round of the 2015 draft, jumping from four sacks as a rookie to 12.5 sacks last season. The offseason addition of Chandler Jones aided Golden's cause, but he complemented a third-place finish in the sack department with four forced fumbles, which was good for a tie for seventh in the NFL. While the loss of Calais Campbell as a free agent removes a key piece of the pass rush, Golden will again have the newly-minted Jones operating on the other side as the unit attempts a repeat performance in the fall.
  3. Markus Golden 2015 Preseason Outlook
    The Cardinals struck for Golden in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft with notable 3-4 outside linebackers Randy Gregory and Owamagbe Odighizuwa still on the board, surprising talking heads and viewers alike. Golden has responded by climbing the depth chart throughout the offseason and even logging first-team reps at weak-side linebacker early in training camp. If the trend continues, he could usurp the role intended for Lorenzo Alexander, which isn't a hit to the veteran due to his ability to play all four LB spots as well as his special teams prowess. In his final season at the pass-rush factory that is Missouri, Golden notched 78 tackles (43 solo) and 10 sacks in 13 games.
