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.

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.
