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 taking a look at the team roster from A to Z as it currently stands. Next up is guard Earl Watford.

2013 season: Watford was a rookie last season out of James Madison.  He was drafted in the fourth-round of the NFL Draft in 2013.  He was active for three games but did not play in any of those three.

2014 season: It’s an ever changing world on the Cards offensive line.  Officially on the depth chart, Watford is listed behind Jonathan Cooper, last year’s first-round pick who is currently in the doghouse of coach Bruce Arians.  However it appears that Ted Larsen will move over from center to take over Cooper’s spot.  So where does that leave Watford?  Hard to say.  He didn’t play that well in Minnesota last weekend.  Given the need for depth on the line though, anything can happen with him.
