No one is making the Arizona Cardinals 53 man roster right now.
However, many will be making an impression.
That is why mini-camp is so important for unknowns, you are not going to make the team with your work over this weekend, but you can put yourself in a position to at least have an opportunity to do so come July.
Who has impressed so far? That will be up for debate, but we have seen some names be singled out:
We'll see how he plays, but UDFA WR Krishawn Hogan looks the part. 6-3, 222.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) May 12, 2017
Budda Baker showed his skills on the first day. Fired into the backfield on a CB blitz which would have been a sack. Nabbed an INT later.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) May 12, 2017
BA impressed by tryout WR Larry Clark. Didn't know his last name but "I learned his first name already, and that's a really good thing."— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) May 12, 2017
Arians mentions tryout WR Larry Clark as someone who caught his eye first day, as well as UDFA signee WR Carlton Agudosi.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) May 12, 2017
IMO tryout WR Seth Coate made some nice plays. And #AZCardinals also brought back recently cut WRs Harvey Binford & Marvin Hall as tryouts.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) May 12, 2017
It is not surprising to see wide receivers as the standouts, mini-camp is glorified flag football work, meaning quarterbacks, wide receivers and defensive backs are the players who normally standout.
Seeing those players not only impressing the media, but being singled out by Arians is not completely shocking.
It is expected to see those positions playing well in the drills being ran.
Also of note, do not be concerned when draft picks are not among the standouts. They're likely working on specific things with position coaches, not trying to make early impressions.
