With the lockout over and the beginning of the offseason underway, undrafted rookies are beginning to find themselves NFL homes, at least for now until most of them get cut. However, these players are the ones that make great stories in the preseason. Just last year we had Stephen Williams, Max Komar and Max Hall, all who made the team and got playing time. Lyle Sendlein and Ali Highsmith are guys that made the Cardinals without the benefit of being drafted.
Monday night reportedly there were a few players that have agreed to come to Cardinals camp.
The first we heard about was Daiveun Curry-Chapman, a receiver from Northern Arizona University. He caught 69 passes and six TDs for the Lumberjacks. He is 6-1, 209 lbs and not super fast. His 40 time was in the 4.6 range.
Next is USC center Kris O'Dowd. He is 6-4, 309 lbs. Undoubtedly, he will be equated with Lyle Sendlein, as Sendlein was an undrafted rookie to make the team and later become the most consistent player on the Arizona offensive line.
It seems that Max Hall and Richard Bartel will have some competition. Pat Devlin, a QB out of Delaware is also joining the team. He is a 6-4, 222 lb guy who succeeded Joe Flacco as a starter. He is a mobile guy with decent arm strength.
There were reports, unconfirmed by local media that BYU safety Andrew Rich will also be added to the training camp roster.
The final player that has been reportedly set to join Arizona is Michigan State offensive tackle D.J. Young. Young is a 6-5, 307 lb tackle that was projected to go in the late rounds of the draft. He was an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention in 2010.
I'm sure there will be more, but that is the info we have so far.
