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.

Hawaii wide receiver JoJo Ward has had some huge production seasons.

From the team:

“Hawaii wide receiver JoJo Ward (5-9, 175) earned second-team All-Mountain West Conference honors last season as a junior after catching 65 passes for 1,134 yards (17.4-yard avg.) and 11 touchdowns in 15 games. A Waco, TX native, his 11 touchdowns led the Mountain West and his 1,134 receiving yards were second in the conference last season. Ward played two seasons at Hawaii after transferring from Tyler (TX) Junior College. He finished his two seasons at Hawaii with 116 receptions for 1,999 yards (17.2-yard avg.) and 20 touchdowns in 29 games played.”

Ward is a really intriguing prospect because he wasn’t a complete burner, but he is effortless in his speed and has that distance speed you like to see in a deep threat.

That’s how Hawaii seemed to deploy him consistently and he had massive games, especially against Oregon State and had 10 catches for 189 yards and four touchdowns.
