After Josh Rosen, the signings of the rookie class gets less and less exciting, but it doesn’t mean that it happening at a breakneck pace isn’t a good thing.
In fact, Friday evening the Arizona Cardinals announced the signing of all three of their day three picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.
They announced the signings of running back Chase Edmonds, cornerback Christian Campbell and offensive tackle Korey Cunningham.
From the team:
Edmonds (5-9, 210) was a three-time All-American selection who started all 44 games he appeared in and set school and Patriot League records with 5,862 rushing yards (fifth in FCS history), 74 career touchdowns, 67 career rushing touchdowns and 7,374 all-purpose yards. A Harrisburg, PA native, Edmonds set a school rushing record with 1,838 yards as a freshman in 2014 and followed that up with 1,648 rushing yards in 2015 and 1,799 rushing yards in 2016. He was an all-conference selection in each of his four seasons at Fordham and finished his career with 5,862 rushing yards and 67 touchdowns on 938 carries (6.2 yard avg.) to go along with 905 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on 86 receptions (10.5 yard avg.)
Campbell (6-1, 195) started all 13 games as a senior in 2017 and earned honorable mention All-Big 10 honors after setting a career-high with 45 tackles, his first career sack, one interception, two tackles for loss, his first two career forced fumbles and a team-leading 12 passes defensed. In three seasons at Penn State, Campbell played in 44 games (16 starts) and totaled 102 tackles, three interceptions, one sack, 21 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
Cunningham (6-6, 311) finished his collegiate career by starting 24 consecutive games at tackle. A team captain last season, he was a second-team All-American Athletic Conference selection as a senior in 2017 after starting all 12 games and didn’t give up a sack. The Montevallo, AL native began his college career as a tight end at Cincinnati before switching to the offensive line as a freshman. Cunningham played in 45 games in his career with 24 starts on the offensive line.
That leaves only Christian Kirk and Mason Cole as the remaining unsigned draft picks for the Arizona Cardinals.
Congratulations and welcome to the desert to the newest Arizona Cardinals.
