With NFL training camps going on throughout the league, you will find that there are particular storylines that happen. Ryan Van Bibber from SB Nation's NFL page happened to discover them. Believe it or not, the Cardinals have guys that fit the roles.

What are these common storylines?

According to RVB, they are the player with the rebound season, the position battle that really isn't, the stud rookie and the guy that is in the best shape of his life.

Who are the Cards that fit these roles?

Rebound season:

There are two here -- Kevin Kolb and Stew Bradley. people talk about how Kolb did not have the time to learn the offense and Bradley the same on defense.

Fake positional battles:

Some believe the QB battle is a hoax. I don't though. But for this I say David Carter fits the profile. Dan Williams is going to start if he shows anything at all. Carter may push him, but on the bench he will go and will back up all three defensive line positions.

Stud rookie:

The easy answer is Michael Floyd, being the team's top draft pick. But actually the guy here is Ryan Williams (only a rookie because he did not play a season ago.

Best shape in his life:

Aside from hearing that Dan Williams is lighter, this storyline has not been heard. It's not necessarily anything worth mentioning if a player says he's more in shape than before.

What do the rest of you think? Anybody else fit these roles?
