The Arizona Cardinals signed former Alabama QB Jake Coker as an undrafted rookie free agent earlier this week, but he will not be the only quarterback throwing passes during the team’s rookie mini-camp this weekend.
Rivers, the brother of San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers, played for Northwestern State. Last season, he completed 65.1 percent of his passes for 1,394 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions. He bounced around some in college, going from LSU to Vanderbilt and then Northwestern State.
The 6-foot-7, 224-pound passer has excellent size, but according to his NFL.com draft profile, is unathletic, lacks anticipation as a thrower and has below-average arm strength.
