Cardinals load up with offensive linemen, defensive backs

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) After producing its first Heisman Trophy winner, Louisville coach Bobby Petrino worked to fortify the line that will protect in quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Jackson's milestone sophomore season had Louisville (9-4) near the cusp of consideration for the College Football Playoff before their outside prospects collapsed with three straight losses including a bowl game. While the Cardinals' class of 22 signees announced Wednesday includes seven defensive backs and safeties, the big additions are five offensive line recruits.

They all weigh more than 300 pounds, and the coaching staff loves their athleticism.
