Arizona Cardinals rookie WR J.J. Nelson is making a name for himself.
The fifth-round draft pick out of UAB has been making big play after big play both on the practice field and in preseason games.
The Cardinals are confident that play will continue into the regular season.
In tandem with second-year wideout John Brown, Nelson gives Arizona a lightening fast combination on the edge. Veteran Larry Fitzgerald will patrol the underneath routes and Michael Floyd will be another downfield threat once he returns from injury.
Jaron Brown is also highly regarding in Arizona, but it could be Nelson who develops into QB Carson Palmer's main deep threat as the season progresses.
