The Arizona Cardinals signed 21 undrafted free agents and we’ll take a look at them over the next four or five days.

Let’s get to know them before they are gone.

Steve Gonzalez is a guard from Penn State.

From the team:

Penn State offensive lineman Steven Gonzalez (6-4, 332) finished his Nittany Lion career by making 39 consecutive starts over his final three seasons, including starting all 13 contests at left guard in 2019. He was a three-year starter who played in 50 games (42 starts) during his collegiate career. A Union City, NJ native, Gonzalez was named second-team All-Big Ten as a senior after receiving honorable mention accolades following his junior season. As a sophomore, he helped Penn State’s offense rank second in the Big Ten by averaging 460.3 yards and 41.1 points per game.

Gonzalez is a mountain. Despite his size, he doesn’t play as physical or nasty as you would expect. He is good in getting into his man and shielding them, but doesn’t finish them quite as much as you’d like.

Gonzalez has the size and quality work in the run game to be a backup in the NFL.
