J.J. Nelson, a rookie from Alabama-Birmingham, has also impressed so far. He’s made some impressive catches the first two days with not much room in which to make them. After the first practice on Saturday, coach Bruce Arians told media that “he had a heck of a day”. As a rookie it is always good to get noticed early.
Not only was he making catches but he also was able to show off his speed. Nelson, who is also up for being the punt and kick returner for the Cardinals, was said to show some good speed on screen passes. To me the guy already sounds like a seasoned veteran but we”ll see how the rest of camp goes. It’s only been two days after all.
