Three Arizona Cardinals that made a great final preseason impression

NFL: Preseason-Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

It was the fourth and final preseason game for the Arizona Cardinals and the NFL last night and thankfully we are heading into the regular season.

While there were a number of strong performances last night, many of the players that played well will be on the final 53-man roster.

I wanted to highlight three players who played well in what is likely their final game in an Arizona Cardinals uniform in 2019.

A.J. Richardson, WR - The Boise State undrafted free agent wide receiver out of Boise State had his best preseason performance. In fact, he had really what can be described as his only preseason performance, finishing with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. Richardson will get picked up on a practice squad at worst, he has some talent.

Vontarrius Dora, Edge - Dora had been mostly quiet this preseason, but exploded in the fourth an final game for six tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss and three quarterback hits. Dora needed a strong game for him to have a shot to get picked up somewhere.

Drew Anderson, QB - I fully expect the Arizona Cardinals to try and bring back Anderson to the practice squad, but there are three or four teams who could look to carry the undrafted rookie on their 53-man roster. Anderson showed he can move and make throws that could lend him being a valuable backup down the road for the Cardinals.
