The Arizona Cardinals have drafted Stanford running back Stepfan (Stef-FON) Taylor in the fifth round.

A hard-running tailback, Taylor left Stanford as the school's all-time leading rusher with 4,300 yards and in total touchdowns with 45.

The 5-foot-9, 216-pound Taylor never missed a game due to injury and rushed for 1,530 yards last season, second-most in school history.

Taylor should provide depth for the Cardinals, who signed Rashard Mendenhall as a free agent after releasing Beanie Wells and have injury-plagued Ryan Williams coming back.
