Who is one undrafted player that we can expect to see on the team this year?— BenjaminDHatch (@BenjaminDHatch) June 2, 2017
TEMPE, Ariz. -- There are two undrafted players who could make the Arizona Cardinals' 53-man roster if they keep up their performance from OTAs thus far.
Both happen to be in the highly competitive wide-receivers room, too.
Rookies Larry Clark and Carlton Agudosi each has a legitimate shot at making the roster, and each would give the Cardinals a taller option at receiver. Clark is 6-foot-3 and Agudosi is 6-foot-6. Agudosi was signed as a free agent after the draft; Clark impressed enough during rookie minicamp as a tryout player to earn a contract.
Each player has drawn rave reviews from coach Bruce Arians and Cardinals teammates. Arians said Agudosi had a “really good week,” while veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald though Clark, from Colorado State-Pueblo, has been learning quickly.
Agudosi’s athleticism could help separate him from Clark. He’s tall and lanky, and has been able to prove he’s better than his most recent collegiate numbers: eight catches for 89 yards and a touchdown at Rutgers last season.
If any two undrafted guys could fight their way onto the 53-man roster, it’s one of them.
