Robert Nkemdiche Could See Snaps at Fullback for Arizona Cardinals

Nkemdiche has experience playing the fullback position and Coach Bruce Arians thinks he could see some snaps there.

There were a lot of moments to take from the opening of Arizona Cardinals training camp on Friday, but some were a little more... fun than others.

Bruce Arians spoke about the utilization of rookie Robert Nkemdiche as a potential goal line full back in 2016, and I for one could not be more excited about the idea.

In 2015, with the Ole Miss Rebels, Nkemdiche scored three touchdowns, two rushing and a beautiful 31 yard touchdown reception that showed off soft hands and some impressive open field speed for a nearly 300lbs man.

Check out his first touchdown against UT Martin, with the 31 yard catch and run.

His second touchdown, a goal line carry in a blowout of Fresno State.

Finally, his third touchdown showed his ability to push the pile.

Nkemdiche will make his name on the defensive line as an interior presence, but the ability to flex to fullback on offense is... Wildly entertaining.
