Here are my predictions on the ones that will end up making the team.
I think these three are pretty self-explanatory. Richard Bartel is good, but didn't show as much as Lindley and the rookie has upside in his corner.
I thought Alfonso Smith would have a shot at making the roster, but Powell looked really good this preseason. I think he gets his shot.
Byrd was the clear standout among the undrafted wide receivers and I can't envision a scenario where he doesn't make this team.
This one could go a variety of ways. The team could retain D.J. Young due to their lack of talent at the tackle position, but I think they will try to sneak him and Nate Potter to the practice squad. Russ Hochstein is another option to make the team, but I don't see it.
This is a position that needs youth and speed. Clark Haggans no longer provides that, so I am not sure he makes the cut. I think it comes down to him and Williams. Haggans does have an advantage with knowing the scheme very well.
A.J. Jefferson has been a favorite of mine, but I am not sure if he offers more versatility than Adams. Those two are interchangeable for me. Toler, after being my choice to be a starter this season, might not even make the team, either. This will be something to look out for.
The thing to keep in mind is that although these are the final 53 Cardinals I project to make the team, I don't think this will be the 53 that starts the season. Arizona will look at other waiver options as other teams make their cuts.
Who's ready for some football?
