Arizona Cardinals Linebackers Depth Chart

3 of 15

Dec 28, 2014; Santa Clara, CA, USA; San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore (21) rushes for a gain against Arizona Cardinals inside linebacker Kevin Minter (51) during the fourth quarter at Levi

Kevin Minter:

He is a lock for one of the inside linebacker job, after he has a fabulous 2014 season. Kevin Minter is looking to be a force on the defense.

Minter was the Cardinals 2nd round selection in 2013 and played at LSU with current Cardinals, Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu. He started in five of the 16 games he played in 2014, and had career-best 44 tackles, one sack, and five tackles for a loss.

Minter should be more confident as he heads into 2015, after his last game of 2014 was his best with six tackles. He will start in a defense that was one of the best the past few years.
