The Arizona Cardinals have a diverse roster of players from all over the country but the Pac-12 power leads the way with five players on the current roster
They all won’t be here come September however the current players on the Arizona Cardinals roster shows they’ve got a well represented one from around the country. The Washington Huskies lead the way with five players.
Of those five, all five have a chance of making the final 53-man roster, however realistically just three will make it. They include safety Budda Baker, linebacker Zeke Turner, and cornerback Byron Murphy. We’ll see about tight end Darrell Daniels and offensive lineman Coleman Shelton.
Washington is the only school that has five players on the Cardinals roster. That being said, no school has even four players on the roster.
There are seven schools with three players on the current roster. They include Arizona State, Boise State, Florida, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, Syracuse, and Texas A&M.
Of those schools, Arizona State seems to have a good shot at being well represented on the final 53-man roster. Running back D.J. Foster, Linebacker Terrell Suggs, and kicker Zane Gonzalez all figure to make it.
Also with a very good chance for three players to be with the team in the fall are the three from Syracuse. Linebacker Chandler Jones, offensive lineman Justin Pugh both should be on the 53 and running back Dontae Strickland could be a practice player.
There are eight schools with two players each. They include Louisiana Tech, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Florida, Temple, UCLA, and Vanderbilt.
Clearly college football’s power five schools will dominate the roster. The SEC (18), Pac-12 (14), ACC (11) and Big Ten (7) will all be well represented in training camp. Things will change but this is the way it lays out for now.
