As we get further into 2016 preseason games, I wanted to share a couple players to keep an eye on as we get closer to the regular season. One player from offense and one from defense. Remember the thoughts shared here are only MY opinion and should be treated as such. Ok, Here we go:
My ‘best’ offensive player this season would have to be David Johnson #31 RB. As if his 13 touchdowns last year and his record breaking as a rookie wasn’t exhilarating enough, David Johnson is already showing tremendous growth and strength during Cardinals training camp. I suspect Johnson to have another stellar year as starting RB. As long as he stays healthy, he has the running talent to turn heads from all over the NFL.
My ‘best’ defensive player to watch this season would be Markus Golden #44 OLB. Markus was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2015 draft. He had 4 sacks his rookie season but often overran plays in an attempt to get at the quarterback. At Cardinals camp, so far, Golden has shown improvement and has been working hard to understand the scheme. I see his sack count rising with the addition of Chandler Jones and he’s one I’ll be watching progress for sure.
Thanks for stopping by folks! I am so excited to start the 2016 season and get more involved online with all the football fans out there! Send me a tweet and let’s chat football! I hope to talk with more of you soon!
