It’s game one of the preseason, but it was game one of the preseason and we can absolutely take some things away from it.
Let’s take a look at whose stock went up and whose went down.
Kyler Murray - Sorry, I couldn’t help myself, I’m so excited.
Trent Sherfield - Robert highlighted it this morning, but maybe no one had a better all-around game than Sherfield. He showed why he is, dare I say, a lock for this roster. He will not only contribute as a receiver, he’s one of the better special teams players on the roster.
Chris Jones - Jones continues to be the best “next guy” in the secondary. No, not just at corner, in the secondary. Jones had another nice game where he showed he can be the fourth corner with Patrick Peterson suspended.
Brett Hundley - He’s comfortable and confident in the Kliff Kingsbury offense. He looked cool and in control in his first game back home.
Wes Hills - This dude just has bad intentions when he gets the ball in his hands. He wants to hurt you. He’s a different runner than anyone on the roster.
Tyler Sigler - I don’t know if he is athletic enough to hang in the NFL. I do know he has as natural of football instincts as I have seen. The interception was an easy one, but a couple plays later, he impressed me with his read and react on a run play to make a tackle near the line of scrimmage. It could be the only time we get to mention his name, so I wanted to make sure I did.
D.J. Foster - He didn’t get a ton of opportunities and the one screen pass was a little hot from Hundley, but in an extremely tight competition, he’s going to have to make some plays.
Chad Williams and Kevin White - The emergence of Sherfield and the play of Damiere Byrd, if you’re not on the field, all the talent in the world does not matter.
