Givens Price, who spent time as both an offensive and defensive lineman at Nebraska, has earned himself an opportunity with the Arizona Cardinals.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Price, at least that was his listed measurement as a Husker senior, is labeled as a tackle on a list of undrafted free agents picked up by the Cards.

Price played in 23 games on the Husker O-line through his junior season, including 12 appearances in 2014. He made the switch to defensive line prior to last year, where he appeared in only two games.

Despite spending five years in the program, Price is still just 21 as he begins his pro opportunity.

Very smart guy, Price. That surely wasn't lost on any NFL scouts that chatted him up.

"I love numbers. I love to play with numbers," he once explained. "I find any possible way to toy with numbers. I'm an accounting major. Most people see me as, like, this nerd. I'm not really a nerd. I just get my work done. But I'm checking my bank account several times a day, just staring at the numbers, adding up numbers. Anything that has numbers, I'm trying to figure it out."

Work the numbers out now and the Huskers appear to have four players who weren't drafted who will have opportunities: cornerback Daniel Davie (Colts), O-lineman Zach Sterup (Chiefs), Price (Cardinals) and reportedly defensive lineman Jack Gangwish (Bengals).
