NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals brought in 12 undrafted free agents following the 2019 NFL Draft. While they’ll have additional players in as tryout players, there are 12 they offered money to and signed.

Each day we will take a look at one or two of the players with a little background information on them.

Murray State quarterback Drew Anderson.

Maine tight end Drew Belcher.

Ohio State linebacker Dante Booker.

Wofford defensive tackle Miles Brown.

Rutgers offensive lineman Tariq Cole.

Pitt linebacker James Folston Jr.

Arkansas cornerback Ryan Pulley.

Boise State wide receiver A.J. Richardson.

North Carolina offensive lineman WILLIAM SWEET (6-6, 313) started all 10 games he played at left tackle last season, leading a Tar Heels unit that allowed just 10 sacks, the seventh fewest in the NCAA. He received UNC’s offensive lineman of the week award three times in 2018, helping the Tar Heels average 442.1 yards of total offense, including 193.0 rushing yards per game. The Jacksonville, FL native played 26 games during his collegiate career.

From Lance Zierlein:

Early draft entrant with good length but a debilitating lack of functional movement in space and inability to handle pass sets against edge speed. Sweet’s lack of body control and balance shows up on a regular basis when he’s asked to play beyond his area as a run-blocker. His movement could still be hindered by his 2017 ACL injury, but he had many of the same issues with pass sets before his injury. His size traits earn him consideration, but the tape was very uneven.
