    Don’t know much about his time in AZ, but it looks like he has good size as a 3-4 DE. Anybody know if he was used that way for the Cardinals? Here’s to hoping this pick up pays off!

    He showed a lot of athleticism at Ole Miss, but has shown nothing in the pros. So we will see.

    I just read an overview of Nkemdiche on lockedondolphins.com. Apparently Nkemdiche is very good against the run. And if we know anything about New England style defense. They play to a players strength. Nkemdiche could be a base 3-4 end on early downs? That's the role I believe Flores and company see for this guy.

    I just don’t get the story. Does HQ have a parking lot on top of it? If not, how can the car have been on top of a building? Also, how can a guy of his size fit in the trunk of a car? How did it close? How did they get it open?

    1. Million dollar body, ten cent brain.
    2. Coming out of high school, he was as decorated as it gets.
    3. There was hardly a bidding war for this guy. He was in the scrap heap. He should see that he won’t have an infinite number of chances.
    4. Brian Flores has an amazing character and background that may allow him to mentor troubled players. He may be able to get through to a young guy regarding the magnitude of the opportunity the player has and how much of a shame it would be to blow it.
    5. We need talent virtually everywhere, especially high end physical specimens.
    6. He wouldn’t be the first immensely talented player with a checkered past to turn into a productive football player.
    7. If Flores can’t get through to him upstairs, you can discard him.
    8. Worst case scenario, he infects Tunsil and others with his immaturity and brings other players down with him.
    9. I think it’s worth the risk to bet on talent and hope the player finds simple, common sense. Keep an eye on his comings and going’s, and if he continues as a head case, get rid of him. It’s probably been told to him (and his buddy Tunsil) that if he doesn’t change his mindset, he’s gone and he will have squandered his opportunity.

    Due to the injury I don't think he is going to see any field other than the practice field until after the bye... Maybe even week 6. If he don't put the work in on the field he does see it wont hurt the fins. Like others have said here good high potential low risk signing...

    The amount of people who can't see this "story" as a rather obvious (and hilarious!) attempt at satire is frankly quite concerning.

    Come on, guys. :lol:

    He also showed up to AZ camp this year out of shape according the Kliff Kingsbury.
