Arizona Cardinals Roster A to Z: Calais Campbell


As we wait for the NFL labor situation to be resolved,this is a continuation of a series on current Arizona Cardinals players and my thoughts on the past performance all the way to whether I think they will be on the roster in 2011. I go from A and go to Z.  Next up:  Defensive End Calais Campbell

2010 analysis:  Campbell appeared on the surface to not have as strong a 2010 as he did in 2009, however, his numbers were relatively the same.  He did have fewer tackles (48 in 2010 and 60 in 2009), however his sack production only dropped off by one sack from 2009 if you can believe that.

2011 outlook:  I can only see Campbell getting stronger and stronger and eventually becoming a major force to be reckoned with for years to come.  I just hope they all come in an Arizona Cardinals uniform.  The Cards have had a tendency to overlook their strong defensive players (see Karlos Dansby) when they are in a bind financially with their offensive stars.  Cards are going to need every bit of Calais Campbell in order to be successful in 2011 and beyond.
