Arizona Cardinals rookie right guard Senio Kelemete made an impression in his first NFL game by making a 10 yard reception and a first down on a crazy play during the second quarter of Sunday's NFL game against the San Francisco 49ers. The pass from Cardinals quarterback Brian Hoyer was intended for receiver Andre Roberts, but was deflected straight up in the air by Niners cornerback Carlos Rogers. As Niners lineman Isaac Sopoaga appeared to be in position for the interception, Kelemete grabbed the ball away from him and charged forward like a fullback for the first down. Kelemete was given credit for 7 YAC (yards after the catch) on his first career reception. With skills like that, the Cardinals may want to consider moving Kelemete to tight end, or fullback. Their offense certainly couldn't get any worse. Video via NFL.com. H/T Shutdown Corner. Visit us at holdoutsports.com and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.
