Entre los más sobresalientes de la NFC-Oeste

Posted Jan 15, 2013

Sabemos que el linebacker Daryl Washington fue nombrado al segundo-equipo Todo-Estrella por Prensa Asociada – ese es el “grande” – pero los Cardenales, al menos defensivamente, lo hicieron bien en un par de los recientes equipos de Estrellas de la NFC Oeste que se dieron a conocer.

El ala defensivo Calais Campbell, el esquinero Patrick Peterson y el safety Kerry Rhodes fueron reconocidos en el equipo elegido por profootballfocus.com, algo que no es una sorpresa. Habían venido señalando por años a Campbell y Rhodes durante todas las temporadas, impulsándolos hacia la categoría Todo-Estrella. Y tenía cosas buenas que decir sobre Peterson, incluso si no lo ven como uno de los dos esquineros líderes de la conferencia. Reconocieron el gran año de Daryl Washington, pero no lo eligieron.

Mike Sando en ESPN eligió a Peterson, Campbell y Washington, dejando fuera a Rhodes. El juego de ese joven trío es la razón por la que la gente tiene entusiasmo por la defensa de los Cardenales, así como por sus veteranos como Adrian Wilson y Darnell Dockett avanzando en la dirección correcta y pasando la antorcha.

– La gira de entrevistas de Ken Whisenhunt para entrenador en jefe continuó el lunes. Ya había hablado con Búfalo, Cleveland (dos veces), San Diego y luego con Filadelfia el lunes.

The All-Pro safety tore his ACL at the end of last season and missed most of camp, but returned for the final week. He picked off three passes in his first three practices and looks like he should be ready for the regular season opener.</p>

    #CardsCamp Biggest Surprise: WR Chris Hubert. The undrafted free agent out of Fayetteville State had little buzz entering training camp, but quickly established himself by regularly getting open and making catches. He shot up the depth chart, and while it would still be a surprise for him to make the team, Hubert has turned heads. Even a practice squad spot would be a solid accomplishment for the diminutive rookie.

    #CardsCamp Best Rookie: CB Brandon Williams. The third round pick has taken the field with the starters throughout camp. While there have been some growing pains, the Cardinals are excited about his progress. Williams is a converted running back who has played corner for only a year, but he's catching on quickly and should make an impact quicker than originally expected.

    #CardsCamp Most Improved: TE Troy Niklas. The former second-round pick was close to bust status after struggling with injuries in his first two seasons, but a healthy training camp has allowed him to make significant strides. Niklas is in the mix for a starting role as he begins to deliver on the vast potential he showed coming out of Notre Dame.

    #CardsCamp MVP: WR Jaron Brown. The Cardinals have a deep group at wideout, and playing time during the regular season for Brown could be sporadic, but he took advantage of regular work in camp. Brown lined up a lot with the first team because of injuries and seemed to come away with one or two big-time catches in every practice. Brown is a fantastic safety valve to have if he's needed regularly during the season.
