TEMPE — The Arizona Cardinals offensive line room is a tight-knit group.

Filled with rookies and vets, the group is chock-full of personality.

Thanks to the help of rookie OL Lecitus Smith on Friday, he provided Arizona Sports with another layer of the line in a rapid-fire setting.

Without further ado, a closer look into the Arizona trenches:

Who is the funniest lineman?

Smith: “Sean Harlow. Harlow’s just a funny guy. He’s always in high spirits and every single time, no matter if it’s morning, afternoon after a practice or if it’s later on after a walkthrough, he’s always going to be joking around when he’s not in and just goofing off. He’s always messing with us rookies. I’d say Sean Harlow. If not, it’s Marquis Hayes.”

Who is the nastiest lineman in the room?

Smith: “Will Hernandez. Definitely.”

Who has got the biggest voice?

Smith: “D.J. Humphries. Undoubtedly, D.J.”

Who is the best cook?

Smith: “We haven’t even dove too far into the cooking thing. I’ve heard Rodney say a few things about him being on the grill and smoking some meat. He sounds like he knows what he’s doing. ME being so young compared to those guys, I hate to say me. They’ve been around the block a lot more than me, but you know what? I’m going with myself.”

Who has the weirdest hobby?

Smith: “It’s not necessarily a hobby but any time I have to go to the store for my rookie duties, every single time I go, Beach (Kelvin Beachum) is going to want the white cheddar popcorn bag of chips. He loves them so much to the point where I can’t just get the personal bag. I got to get the family size. He’s more than likely going to finish that in two days of film session.”

Who has the best back and forth?

Smith: “Marquis Hayes and Cody Ford. Both of those guys went to Oklahoma together so they’re boys. It’s all love of course but they’re always kind of messing with each other.”

Who has the best freestyle on Freestyle Fridays?

Smith: “I cannot freestyle. I can’t rap. I can’t do it. So we kind of ended it I think because of that. Marquis Hayes can rap pretty good, though. when he’s with the group, he’ll usually throw a couple bars out there, but I can’t do it.”
