The Cardinals decided to use their seventh round draft pick on Wide Receiver DeMarco Sampson from San Diego State. With the questionable future of Larry Fitzgerald who is entering the final year of his contract, along with Steve Breaston and Early Doucet who are currently Free Agents, you can see why the Cardinals decided to add another guy to their stable of Wide Receivers.DeMarco Sampson is a tall receiver at 6'2" and weighing 200 pounds who was also clocked at 4.41 during his Pro Day. Last season, he became a big play threat for the San Diego State Aztecs catching 67 passes for 1220 yards and eight Touchdowns. He is also thought of as a high character guy with a good work ethic and good football smarts like many of the other players the Cardinals drafted this year. But he has been criticized for having inconsistent hands, he also missed the 2006 and 2007 season in college due to a foot injury.
He probably won't be one of the main targets for the Cardinals, but he should help provide some depth to the receiving corps along with being a big target for whoever the Cardinals wind up playing at Quarterback this season.
Here is a scouting report from NFL.com
Sampson struggled with injuries early in his career, but had a very productive senior season. He has prototypical size and uses his body to effectively shield defenders to make catches even when he is covered. He also shows no hesitation working over the middle and usually finds open spots in zone coverage. He does not appear explosive enough to separate at the next level, as he struggled to get open against better competition in college. Sampson has worked extremely hard to overcome a foot injury that cost him two seasons and a team may take a chance on him for his size.
