The Arizona Cardinals continue to sign their 2024 NFL Draft class.

The Arizona Cardinals added two more from their 2024 NFL rookie class today, as they have announced they have signed Max Melton and Isaiah Adams.

From the team:

The signings took place today at the Dignity Health Arizona Cardinals Training Center in Tempe, AZ.

Melton (5-11, 187) was a two-time All-Big Ten selection while at Rutgers and finished his collegiate career by appearing in 44 games (40 starts) and collecting 114 tackles (79 solo), eight interceptions, 22 passes defensed, nine tackles for loss, 1.0 sack, four fumble recoveries and one forced fumble. As a senior in 2023, Melton started 12-of-13 games played and led the team with three interceptions to go along with 32 tackles, six passes defensed, four tackles for loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and 1.0 sack. He also blocked four punts in his college career, including leading the country with three blocked punts as a junior in 2022. The 22-year old Melton became the highest draft pick from Rutgers since 2010 (Devin McCourty-27th overall).

Adams (6-4, 315) spent two years at Illinois and played 25 games (24 starts) and was a two-time All-Big Ten selection. He started 14 games at left guard, nine at right tackle and one at left tackle during his two years with the Illini. Last year, Adams started 11-of-12 games played, served as a team captain and earned All-Big Ten Academic honors. An Ajax, Ontario native, the 23-year old Adams began his college career at Wilfred Laurier University in Canada for two years (2018-19) before playing the 2021 season at Garden City Community College (Kansas) and then transferring to Illinois.

Congratulations to both!
