Robert Nkemdiche dominating OTA's until hamstring strain

The second year DT is setting the tone in OTA's.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The offseason workouts have been going great for Robert Nkemdiche.

After a rookie season that saw more learning about how to be a professional off the field, rather than how to make an impact on the field, Nkemdiche has been gearing​ up to replace the great Calais Campbell.

There has never been a question about Nkemdiche’s talent, he was the nation's top recruit as a high schooler, but he has never shown out like was expected.

So, when all you have heard from OTA’s from the Arizona Cardinals is how dominant he has been, you get excited.

That is, until you hear his OTA's are now over, as Nkemdiche strained a hamstring.

While the strain is nothing serious, he will likely miss the rest of minicamp.

It is an exciting time, with a lot of anticipation coming from not only the team, but the fanbase. Let's hope that the anticipation is not killed by nagging injuries and a banged up team like 2016.
