Draft Scout Earl Watford News
10/06/16 - G Earl Watford replaced RG Evan Mathis (ankle) in the second half, while G John Wetzel replaced LG Mike Iupati (ankle), and Arizona's running game kept rolling.
09/02/16 - L Earl Watford is officially listed as the Cardinals' backup center, but he's been used all over the line and for the first time in his three seasons in Arizona, he got some time at left tackle against the Chargers in the final preseason game.
Coach Bruce Arians said he liked what he saw from Watford on the left side, although if starter Jared Veldheer were to go down, Arians has also said that right tackler D.J. Humphries would move over to the left side.
08/11/16 - OL Earl Watford, who was enjoying one of the best camps so far by an Arizona offensive lineman, could miss at least two weeks after sustaining a knee injury during team drills. Coach Bruce Arians has called the injury a bone bruise and an MCL sprain. Watford has become the most versatile player on the offensive line, getting backup work at tackle, center and guard. "He's very crucial for us," Arians said. "His value sometimes is higher than a starter. When you can play five positions as a backup, you can play a long time in this league. Sometimes you get in as a starter, you get exposed a little bit, and everybody thinks you're not as good as you really are. But having learned how to play center, started at right tackle, played guard, that's a lot of value."
08/09/16 - OL Earl Watford, who is practicing at all five positions along the line, suffered a bruised knee and is listed as day-to-day.
05/31/16 - OL Earl Watford is being called "The Swiss Army Knife" by offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin because of the young player's ability to play guard, tackle and now, center. Though he'll enter training camp as a backup at all three spots up and down the line, Watford's versatility is a huge advantage. "Position flexibility," head coach Bruce Arians said on Tuesday. "We'd like to dress only seven linemen on Sunday, so if you can play three spots, you'll have a lot of value in this league. You can play for a long time. And if he can handle the center position, hat's off to him."
