Arizona Cardinals 2011 NFL Undrafted Free Agents

Notable Undrafted Free Agents:

Kristofer O’Dowd, Southern Cal 6042 303 5.16

Injuries have kept O’Dowd from being a four-year starter as he was nicked up parts of the past three seasons. Nevertheless, if he passes NFL physicals, he has the talent to start on Sundays. He demonstrates a good combination of foot quickness and ease of movement. Has quick initial contact as an inline blocker and is strong enough to tie up the down defender and get push. A natural knee bender, he reacts to different looks and plays with good instincts. Can run block and adjust on the move. Gives a good downfield effort and is proficient on combo blocks to the second level. Forces separation in pass protection. Good base and feet, balance, and use of hands. Played high and stiff most of Senior Bowl week. Was out-leveraged in pass rush drills and in the game. Good initial first step then gets high. Sustains a screen off type block. Stays on his feet when pulling to the perimeter. Good football instincts.

Andrew Rich,  BYU 6026 220 4.64

Two-year starter. An instinctive and active safety who is big and physical. He plays best close to the line of scrimmage. Can lock up and cover tight ends or big slot receivers. Good foot quickness for a man his size. Productive and aggressive in run support. A contact player. Nose for the ball. Stays on his feet and wards off blockers. Durable and tough. Learns and retains coverage schemes. Good concentration. Takes good angles in run support. Inside out player. Forces the point quickly. Will come up and meet sweep. Better in short area coverage than down the field. Academic All-Conference. Solid and consistent in what he is asked to do. Will contribute on special teams. (has decided to retire for personal reasons.)
