Arizona Cardinals: Predicting the 53-man roster at mid-preseason
Offensive line (9)
Mason Cole, Justin Pugh, Mike Iupati, D.J. Humphries, Andre Smith, Will Holden, Evan Boehm, John Wetzel, Korey Cunningham
The first unit offensive line looks just about ready to go for the regular season already. The only kinks to work out there are penalties. Both Humphries and Smith were whistled for false starts last week close to the goal line.
Pugh has been a great signing for the team and a great signing from a few seasons ago, Iupati, looks to be back and ready as ever to open up holes for his running backs. A recurring theme here, as long as they all stay healthy, and that’s a big if with this group, then they could be in for a huge season.
The backups have not impressed so far. Boehm still hasn’t shown the consistency or promise of a star in the making the Cardinals thought they were getting in 2016. However he likely makes the team, showing a possible lack of depth after the first line.
Holden will enter his second season and Wetzel returns as a backup which is best suited for him. Keep your eye on Cunningham this season.
