As the Arizona Cardinals are in preparation for the season with training camp now in full swing in Glendale at University of Phoenix Stadium, we are going to take a look at the team roster from A to Z as it currently stands.  Next up is tackle Nate Potter.

2013 season: Potter played in 13 games last season.  He did not start in any of them after starting in six games in his 2012 rookie season.

2014 season: Potter is now going into his third season in the NFL.  He started some games in 2012 more out of necessity.  The seventh-round pick has had longer staying power than I originally expected of him.  I don’t know if he’s any better or worse than he was as a rookie but the one thing he has going for him is he can play pretty much anywhere along the line if need be.  That makes him a keeper at least as a backup.  You need guys like that.  He may not be the best tackle or guard out there, right side or left side, but he provides a body you can stick in there when someone along the line goes down.
