Draft Scout *Robert Nkemdiche News
12/30/16 - DT Robert Nkemdiche (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday.
11/28/16 - DT Robert Nkemdiche, the Cardinals' first-round draft pick out of Ole Miss, was a healthy scratch for a third straight game and has been in on just one tackle this season.
11/28/16 - DT Robert Nkemdiche was inactive again for Arizona's latest loss, and general manager Steve Keim was asked if the Cardinals' poor 4-6-1 record might make it tempting not to play the first-round pick the rest of the way. "Until he earns it and learns how to be a true pro, he'll have to sit, and I think (second-year tackle) D.J. (Humphries) is the perfect example to look at for Robert," Keim said. "A guy that came in, was a young guy, came out a year early out of college just like Robert did, had a lot of physical attributes that you look for, but at the same time it takes a lot more than that to be a pro.
11/23/16 - DT Robert Nkemdiche continues to draw the wrath of head coach Bruce Arians, who has deactivated the rookie first rounder for most of this season on game days. Asked Wednesday if Nkemdiche reminds him of last year's first-round pick, tackle D.J. Humphries, whom he nicknamed "knee deep" because a foot up his rear end wasn't enough, Arians said, "No. D.J. worked harder."
11/21/16 - DT Robert Nkemdiche was scolded by head coach Bruce Arians after the Vikings' game because the first-round draft pick wasn't adhering to the team's postgame dress code of wearing a suit and tie following a loss. The rookie was wearing a leather jacket over a T-shirt and had to borrow a dress shirt and tie from a teammate before leaving the locker room. Nkemdiche has been inactive for all but just a few games this season.
