Trevor Knight among Cardinals undrafted additions

The Cardinals didn’t take a quarterback to groom as a potential successor to Carson Palmer during the draft, but there is one among the 17 undrafted rookies they’ve agreed to terms with this week.

Trevor Knight is the new quarterback and joins the team after wrapping up his college career with a year at Texas A&M. Knight played at Oklahoma before transferring as Baker Mayfield took over the starting job in Norman. Knight was an effective runner last season, but wasn’t a particularly accurate passer and that will be a big hurdle to overcome if he’s going to stick in the NFL.

They also signed four safeties. Georgia Southern’s Ironhead Gallon, Arizona State’s Gump Hayes, Central Florida’s Drico Johnson and Lousiana Tech’s Cyril Noland-Lewis will compete for a chance to help fill the void left by the departures of Tony Jefferson and D.J. Swearinger. We wish them all well, but teaming second-round pick Budda Baker with guys named Ironhead and Gump would be the most colorful way to go.

Rutgers wide receiver Carlton Agudosi, NW Missouri State defensive tackle Collin Bevins, North Carolina center Lucas Crowley, Marian wide receiver Krishawn Hogan, Weber State linebacker Tre’Von Johnson, Pittsburgh cornerback Ryan Lewis, Virginia Tech tackle Jonathan McLaughlin, Texas A&M tight end Ricky Seals-Jones, Wisconsin cornerback Sojourn Shelton, East Carolina running back James Summers, Utah defensive tackle Pasoni Tasini and Southern Utah tight end Steven Wroblewski round out the group.

  1. Knight was an effective runner last season, but wasn’t a particularly accurate passer and that will be a big hurdle to overcome if he’s going to stick in the NFL.

    You don’t say. hahaha If he doesn’t make it ship him up to Green Bay, they always seem to need converted running backs.

  2. Interesting pick up for the Cards. Trevor Knight has been universally profiled as a scrambling QB with short range accuracy and nothing else. His Tebow-esque throwing motion definitely doesn’t help his case.

    The Cards historically have a connection to Texas A&M players, but it’s usually from defensive coach Chavis’ group.

    Time will tell. Good luck and godspeed Mr. Knight. I hope your NFL dreams are one step closer.

  3. Knight started at Oklahoma, and then transferred to Texas A&M. Baker Mayfield took his job. Mayfield is probably a little better college QB, but Knight has the better NFL package (decisions). It’s hard to get your timing down right away with your receivers, so his accuracy was inconsistent. It was awesome at times though, and he put many downfield throws right on the money. I think a stable environment for Knight might end up surprising a lot of folks. Don’t count this kid out.

  4. You won’t get one OK fan to agree that Trevor Knight will be a better pro than Baker Mayfield. No comparison, Mayfield makes throws all over the field that Knight struggled with. Nice kid though.

    You guys sure got quiet after that beatdown ATL laid on you.
