The Arizona Cardinals continue to add weapons to their new 3-4 defense with the second-round selection of DE Calais Campbell. He has the pro-typical size (6'7", 290) of a 3-4 defense end. He's big enough to hold up on the point of attack, but has enough speed and athleticism to go off the edge. Campbell holds up great against the run, which will help provide Arizona's defense with some balance. With the addition of Campbell and DE Bryan Robinson, the Cardinals now have the depth that defensive line coach Ron Aiken has been vying for. Campbell will also give the Cardinals some leverage if Darnell Dockett holds out in pursuit of a new contract. - Amberly Richardson,
The mammoth end should have no problem transitioning to Arizona's 3-4 scheme. He'll provide some instant depth this season and he could compete for a bigger role as time progresses.
