Every player who reaches the NFL looks to make their presence felt. However that’s not a possibility for everyone. That is no different for the Cardinals undrafted guard/center, Anthony Steen.
Steen earned All-SEC honors his senior year at Alabama, but...

For the first time in many years, the Alabama football team doesn’t have many “big name” players on the offensive line for the 2014 season. With the loss of key players Cyrus Kouandjio, Anthony Steen, and Kellen Williams from the offensive line, Alabama has to put together a national...
The Cardinals ended a solid draft with a rush of Priority Undrafted Free Agent signings. A lot of the signings will not make the 53 man roster, but there’s more than a few that have a shot to make the roster as depth and rotational players.
– RB Zach Bauman, Northern Arizona
– LB Jonathan Brown, Illinois
– LB Glenn Carson, Penn State
– K Chandler Catanzaro, Clemson...
For those players who didn’t get drafted last weekend, they have a longer road to the NFL. They have to sell themselves to NFL teams in hopes of being signed on as an undrafted free agent.
Arizona signed 14 of them to contracts and the list of them is below. List downloaded from NFL.com.
Northern Arizona RB Zach Bauman; Illinois LB Jonathan Brown; Penn State LB Glenn Carson; UNLV...
The NFL draft is this week which means that we’re going to be bringing you mock draft scenarios every 14 minutes. Not really, it’s only going to feel like it. So far we have gone through three different rounds for the first 32 picks. I got us Kelvin Benjamin, David Yankey and Morgan Moses respectively. I think they’re decent picks, as far as mocks go.
What’s much harder to...

New year, similar story for Alabama's offensive line.
The Crimson Tide heads into the 2014 season with two open spots along the line.
Anthony Steen's graduation and Cyrus Kouandjio's early departure for the NFL have left vacancies at right guard and left tackle.
So once again, the Tide's offensive line has to fill holes and chemistry to gain before the season begins...
We move on the 4th round of the draft and it appears that there are players with an abundance of talent still on the board.Again, I’m not taken into account the free agent signings as it would confuse me even more at this point.Overall, this year’s draft has depth and I believe that if Reese selects well, he should be able to get quality with all 6 picks.C.J Fiedorowicz (TE)...
The Jacksonville Jaguars appear to have some work to do if they want a shot at improving the passing attack, regardless of who the quarterback is. Having a good, solid group of receivers can help, but it all boils down to protection–in this league, you have to be able to keep your field general upright and keep the pocket clean, something the Jaguars haven’t been able to do....
Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center.
While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contract, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...
The Seattle Seahawks select…
With 2013 in the books, it’s time to usher in 2014 the best way a football nerd can. That’s right, folks! It’s mock draft season! With the Seattle Seahawks having a 2013 season for the history books, it’s hard to pinpoint weaknesses on this team. With the Super Bowl giving most other teams a 1 month head start over the Seahawks, they have...

Before Alabama started practice earlier this month, there was a major surprise when it was announced that three-year starting right guard Anthony Steen would not be playing in the Sugar Bowl. Steen had surgery on his shoulder. The question then became who would replace him as a starter in the offensive line.
The Alabama football team went back to practice Tuesday and Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban addressed a number of issues, including the loss of starting right guard Anthony Steen and the appearance of controversial Lane Kiffin in Tuscaloosa to consult with the Crimson Tide staff.
As a member of the Football Writer’s Association of America, I get to cast a ballot for the FWAA All-American team. This year I wanted to be sure that my ballot was made public for anyone to see how I voted if they were interested. The ballots for offense were due Sunday, so I am aware that there are still games to be played. However, I feel comfortable my selections here would...
About an hour before lunch on Monday, Alabama senior offensive guard Anthony Steen got a telephone call from his father. Dad had good news. Anthony had been selected as the Southeastern Conference offensive lineman of the week.
Alabama's offensive woes have been partially masked by its ability to score in other ways, but coach Nick Saban knows improvement on that side of the ball is paramount to his top-ranked team's success moving forward.
That doesn't mean Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze believes his No. 21 Rebels will have it any easier as they try to end a nine-game losing streak to the Crimson...

Alabama's special teams and defense are providing a pretty nice bailout whenever the offense isn't racking up points.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide has scored just about every which way this season - returning a punt, a kick, a blocked punt and two interceptions for touchdowns.
That knack helped Alabama (3-0) beat No. 10 Texas A&M and create more lopsided scores against...

Anthony Steen was back at practice for Alabama Wednesday and Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban said he expected Steen to be the starter at right guard when Bama hosts Colorado State Saturday. But at crunch time last weekend at College Station, Steen was out of the game with an injury. In stepped a veteran back-up on the crucial drive that resulted in the winning touchdown.
HOOVER, Ala. -- Three All-Americans: gone. The Rimington Trophy winner: gone. A combined 160 career starts: gone.
The Crimson Tide's offensive line is going through a major transition period with Barrett Jones, D.J. Fluker and Chance Warmack all in NFL minicamps, but despot those losses, the two-time defending national champions were the runaway favorites in the eyes of those...

College football season is right around the corner. Soon, you can take a break from counting down the days until kickoff and drooling over new uniforms because next week, the SEC media days start in Hoover, Alabama.
Today, the SEC announced the roster with every player that will be in attendance — each school selects three athletes – also, all 14 head...
(Photo Courtesy: USA Today Sports) As Alabama gets set to begin an unprecedented third straight BCS title run this spring, one of the scariest realities for the rest of college football is this: Despite winning a second straight championship in 2012, the Crimson Tide were actually one of the youngest teams in the country last year. Alabama had just 12 seniors on their 2012 roster...
Alabama right guard Anthony Steen has announced that he will return for his senior season next year.
FINALLY, we’ve arrived at the only “meaningful” game of the college bowl season, the National Title Game. The storylines have already made themselves clear, and ESPN and other major outlets have milked those to death already.
But this game is, from my perspective, the final game for many of the prospects in the national championships. Both teams have talent on every level...
Right guard Anthony Steen said he didn't know Alabama was ranked No. 1 in both polls after practice Tuesday night. Clearly, the news is not a hot topic of conversation among the Tide.
