With the NFL preseason looming, it gives us a chance to look at every NFC team’s new look roster for the 2023-24 NFL season.
It is also the most exciting time to look at how the 2023 NFL draft class acclimatizes to the step up from college football. With that in mind, here are a few players to watch out for during preseason and the regular season who might have a part to play in the NFC.
I have tried to steer clear of the first two days of the draft, and so I will be looking at players who were selected in round four or later.
NFL outlook: Which offensive rookies in the NFC will make an impact?
QB: Clayton Tune, Arizona Cardinals
With an injury to Kyler Murray and a coaching change looming large over the Cardinals’ season, they decided to take a shot on Clayton Tune, the QB from Houston, with the No. 139 selection of the draft.
Given that Murray may be out for the first few weeks of the regular season, leaving Josh McCown as the starter, Jonathan Gannon may look towards his rookie backup as a replacement if McCown struggles to start the season.
Tune impressed at the collegiate level, passing for over 4000 yards and 40 touchdowns in his final season as a Cougar. He has the mold of a “game manager” at the next level. not someone who can elevate a supporting cast, but can get the job done when called upon. That could end up being vital as the Cardinals look to navigate what could end up being a slightly bleak year in Arizona.
