30. Jonathan Cooper, OG
2013 – 1st round, pick 7
Jonathan Cooper could easily be farther down this list. He struggled mightily with the Arizona Cardinals and is one of their biggest busts in recent memories. However, Cooper was a vital part of the trade to bring Chandler Jones to the desert. After the deal, the guard was cut by the New England Patriots after receiving little playing time. He then bounced around the league and is currently a reserve for Washington.
29. Brandon Williams, CB
2016 – 3rd round, pick 92
Once considered to be a reach in the third round, Williams has struggled to play cornerback after playing running back for the Texas A&M Aggies. He got off to a hot start in the 2016 pre-season but failed to build on it. While he’s still on the Arizona Cardinals roster, their recent additions make it hard to imagine that he will be on the 2019 opening day roster.
28. Chad Williams, WR
2017 – 3rd round, pick 98
Another third round reach with the last name Williams; the Grambling State product has struggled in the NFL. After two seasons in a larger role, the wide receiver figures to see a reduced one in 2019. While he brings speed to the forefront, Williams has struggled mightily as an outside receiver as he’s been responsible for many dropped passes. However, it may be a bit too early to give up on the small-school speedster.
27. J.J. Nelson, WR
2015 – 5th round, pick 159
Like Chad Williams, Nelson’s game is based on speed and an inability to consistently catch the ball. The Alabama Birmingham product showed promise in his first three years but ultimately couldn’t stick with the Arizona Cardinals as his game frustrated fans and coaches alike. Nelson has earned another opportunity in the NFL as he has recently signed a contract with the new look Oakland Raiders.
