Undrafted rookie class includes two brothers

Posted by Darren Urban on July 27, 2011 – 11:13 am

Tight end Stephen Skelton of Fordham and safety Jared Campbell of Miami — brothers of current Cards John Skelton and Calais Campbell — are among the 21 undrafted rookies the team has signed for training camp.

The rest of the lengthy list includes:

  • Northern Arizona WR Daiveun Curry-Chapman
  • Fresno State CB Desia Dunn
  • Baylor P Derek Epperson
  • Wofford S Tommy Irvin
  • Elon WR Sean Jeffcoat
  • Florida LB Duke Lemmens
  • Kentucky DT Ricky Lumpkin
  • Oklahoma T Eric Mensik
  • Syracuse CB Da’Mon Merkerson
  • Oregon State WR Aaron Nichols
  • UMass G Greg Niland
  • USC C Kris O’Dowd
  • Kansas State RB William Powell
  • BYU S Andrew Rich
  • Florida State LB Kendall Smith
  • BYU T Jason Speredon
  • Kansas T Brad Thorson
  • N.C. State G Jake Vermiglio
  • Michigan State T D.J. Young

As has been mentioned before, all rookies are going to have an uphill climb this season because of the lack of offseason work. Undrafted guys usually have a tougher time anyway.

Fitz is SI’s back-to-football cover boy

Posted by Darren Urban on July 25, 2011 – 7:18 pm

Receiver Larry Fitzgerald is Sports Illustrated’s choice to represent the NFL on this week’s the-NFL-is-back issue.

Speaking of football, with teams now contacting undrafted rookies, NAU is reporting the Cards will sign Lumberjacks receiver Daiveun Curry-Chapman, while @NFLDraftInsider is reporting the Cards will sign Michigan State offensive tackle DJ Young and Delaware quarterback Pat Devlin.  The Devlin signing is interesting; once the Cards get a veteran (and assuming Derek Anderson is released) that’s five QBs. With 90 on the roster, maybe they carry an extra guy for now. Or maybe Devlin replaces someone else — it’d come down to Max Hall or Rich Bartel. UPDATE: And @NFLDraftInsider is calling OL Kris O’Dowd of USC too.
