With the Arizona Cardinals 2018 Rookie Mini-Camp a few days away, it is time to get to know some of the lesser known prospects the Cardinals will be bringing in.
First, it was a look at the defensive backs.
Today, Walter will piece together information from around the web on the wide receiver group, let’s get to know these guys a little better and see if anyone could have a shot to make the roster in 2018.
Jonah Trinnaman, WR, 5-11, 190, BYU.
BYU held its annual Pro Day Friday morning in front of NFL scouts from most of the NFL teams around the league, and Jonah Trinnaman was the star of the day with his performance.
Trinnaman officially ran a 4.30 40-yard dash, had a 12 foot broad jump and 40.5 inch vertical jump. The first two marks would have led ALL players at this year’s NFL combine, and his vertical jump would have led all wide receivers. The 144-inch broad jump is only 4 inches away from the world record.
2 years stats at BYU: 52/626/12.0/1 TD. 18/345/19.2 punt returns.
Jalen Tolliver, WR, 6-3, 210, Arkansas-Monticello (4.56 40):
Career stats: 192/3,168/16.5/39 TDs
From Lance Zierlein:
Tolliver will step into camp with an NFL body type and the ball skills to compete for a roster spot. Tolliver needs to do a better job of playing faster and playing to his size in order to handle the huge step up in competition across from him. Tolliver’s size and ability give him a very good shot of being drafted on Day 3 and making a team, but he needs more polish before he’s ready to contribute to a team.
Strengths• Has an NFL-ready frame with good size and definition throughout. Good athlete with above average testing and the hip bend to get out of breaks quickly. Natural hands catch the ball away from his frame. Able to dominate his level of opposition when it’s time to win at the high point. Good toughness to work the middle and haul in the contested catch in traffic. Shows ability to track the deep ball over his shoulder. Able to shake off uncommitted tacklers and stack additional yardage onto the catch. Plenty of upside waiting to be unlocked with focused coaching.
Trent Sherfiled, WR, 6-0, 203, Vanderbilt (4.45 40, 19 reps, 6.90 3 cone).
Had 50 receptions for 729 yards and five TDs last season.
Corey Willis, WR, 5-10, 182, Central Michigan (4.55 40, 10; BJ, 6.85 3 cone).
In 2017, Willis earned 2nd Team All-MAC with 42 catches for.625 yards and 9 TDs.
Who sticks out as having a shot to make the Arizona Cardinals roster or practice squad?
