WR Krishawn Hogan has an outside shot to make the team in some capacity despite being an undrafted rookie free agent out of a tiny NAIA school, Marian University in Indianapolis.
RB David Johnson said he has been craving contact and has been looking forward to his first action of the preseason, which he will get Saturday night when the Cardinals host the Raiders.
WR J.J. Nelson has speed, but if he can't get off the line of scrimmage in certain situations, he no longer will be able to thrive in the NFL, according to coach Bruce Arians.
CB Patrick Peterson has been the standout of the Cardinals' training camp, according to QB Carson Palmer. Asked for specifics, Palmer told reporters, "Just performance. It's the best I've seen him, there's no doubt. I told him that the other day. I think it's his seventh year, and like a fine wine, he's aged well in those seven years. He's just had great practice after great practice. He's contested every single ball. Not that he's broken up every single pass, but he is right on top of it. He's just looked really, really good."
OT John Wetzel, a second-year pro out of Boston College, has been getting reps at both tackle positions since the start of training camp. He could start at left tackle in the Saturday preseason game against the Raiders because starter D.J. Humphries has been limited all week with a sore hamstring. "This is giving me a good feel for what I'd see in a regular-season game as opposed to what I'll see throughout the preseason, so it's good to get that right now," Wetzel said. "It's been going good. I just need to work more on the technique because I've been swinging around to both sides. There are certain things at left tackle that I do better at right, but that's what I'm using training camp for. I'm trying to make sure I'm just as good on both sides in all aspects
