2016

One of the top athletes in the 2016 NFL Draft, Nkemdiche dropped all the way to the Cardinals at pick 29 due to character concerns. All that aside, he'll look to make an immediate impact on the field. At 6-foot-3, 294 pounds, the defensive tackle has Sheldon Richardson-like upside thanks to a 40-yard dash of 4.87 seconds, 35-inch vertical, and 116-inch broad jump.
