#43 Deon Rogers
Hometown: Port St. Lucie, Fla
Thoughts: Deon was a solid number two player last season. He never got an official start but appeared in all 13 games the Cardinals played. He finished last year with twelve tackles, and in my opinion, some great coverage plays down the stretch. Deon is currently listed behind Burgess at the weakside linebacker position. I touched on this a few days ago, but if you watch UofL football you know Charlie and Vance like to turn up the heat more than often and send pressure from the second row. Doing this requires some depth at LB as you can easily get winded blitzing every other play. Guys like Deon, Durant, Lee, Atkins, etc allow us to play this style and their talent is what has ultimately allowed them to be successful in doing so. Look for more of the same in 2013.

"Congratulations son, happy 18th birthday. You're officially a man!"
"Awesome, thanks pop. Now I can go buy tobacco, see R rated movies, join the military, rent a car...."
"Whoa, whoa, whoa there big fella. Scary movies, tobacco and the military are one thing...but renting a car? You've lost your marbles! Here, go play with this gun and smoke some cigars. We'll talk about this whole car rental thing in another 4 years"
