  1. Jeremy Igo added a post in a topic Oher Struggling Early in Camp   

    There could be a real reason both his previous NFL teams had him on the right side.

    Oher Struggling Early in Camp
    The Carolina Panthers hope to have upgraded the left tackle position over last year's starter Byron Bell. Bell struggled greatly against faster defensive ends who could quickly divert around him. 
    Bell's replacement, Michael Oher, appears to be having the same issue early in training camp. 
    Oher had a tough time today containing Mario Addison and Frank Alexander in the first practice where the players were in full pads. On more than one occasion, Cam Newton would have been sacked if not for the "QB off limits" rule in training camp. 
    The play of the day for the defensive line came from Mario Addison who was matching up against Oher. Addison was able to quickly move around Oher's left side and bat down a Cam Newton pass. While cheers came from the sidelines for the defense, the offensive coaching staff must be at least a little concerned. 
    Options at left tackle are extremely limited for the Panthers currently. The second string left tackle for the Panthers is currently Nate Chandler, who lost the left tackle position last season to Byron Bell. 
    Oher will need to improve, particularly against the speed rushers, if the Panthers offense plans on having an effective passing game this season.

    Shaq Thompson Making Plays
    Shaq Thompson has officially arrived at Panthers training camp. While being largely absent the first two practices, he started to come into his own on today's third practice. 

     
    During 7 on 7 drills, Thompson made a speedy break on a Cam Newton pass intended for Greg Olsen. Thompson batted the ball now, marking his first official play made in Panthers training camp. 

    One of Thompson's primary responsibilities will be to cover talented tight ends like Jimmy Graham (now in Seattle). Getting camp experience against pro bowler Greg Olsen can only accelerate his learning and adjusting to the pro game. 
    Thompson continued to impress throughout the day. Another play that sticks out in my mind is a very quick gap stop, halting Fozzy Whitaker's progress. The Carolina Panthers had issues with plugging the correct gap in run defense for a good portion of last season. 
    Shaq Thompson is having more thrown at him than most defensive rookies. He is learning what is probably the most complicated position on the defensive side of the field. While other rookies can be thrown into the mix relatively quickly, Thompson will require more film room time in addition to playing time. 
    If today's performance is any indication, Thompson may be a quick study.

    Panthers Training Camp Notes and Photos - Day 2
    Not a great day for photos, but the day did yield some things worth seeing. 
     
    First off, Kelvin Benjamin continues to impress. This long reception from Cam Newton over Carrington Byndom put an exclamation point on his day. Kelvin has been catching the ball very well, with very few drops. 

     
    Shaq Thompson has been very quiet in team drills. There is no bad news, but there is no good news on that front. In drills, however, it is easy to see how athletic he is. He moves exactly like that linebacker/safety hybrid he was billed as. It remains to be seen how this will translate on game days 

    I am really impressed with Brandon Wegher's speed. Once he hits a hole he bursts out as quickly as any running back I have ever seen. Keep an eye on this kid, he could be a sleeper to make the practice squad or more. 

    Jordan Todman took the field again after missing some time yesterday. He is in direct competition with Wegher for a roster spot, but Todman's experience returning kicks will most likely give him the edge. 

    Kurt Coleman has been very impressive in camp so far. He spent some time in the strong safety position today with Roman Harper sliding over to free safety. He made a really nice adjustment on a poorly thrown Cam Newton ball intended for Greg Olsen and made the interception. No comment on the socks... 

    After being Captain America yesterday, Today Cam was Spiderman. Tomorrow.... Ironman? 

    A funny moment occurred after practice as the linebackers practiced catching interceptions. Kelvin Benjamin strolled through their drill casually and purposefully, taking his time. 
     

    Kelvin was notified by Thomas Davis that it would be the last time he did that, as Kelvin just grinned. 
     
    Other thoughts not pictured- 
    - Ted Ginn was very impressive today. His TD reception over Josh Norman was something the Panthers could have surely used early last season. Norman was a good five or six yards yards behind Ginn. 
    - Up until now the offense has been winning the training camp battle, which is typically how it works. It will likely be a different story on Sunday when the pads are on.

    Kelvin and Devin , Devin and Kelvin
    Last season, then rookie Kelvin Benjamin was selected to get in special reps with Cam Newton away from the other players. Typically, they would go over end zone routes or fine tune a few things here or there.
    Well, that trend is happening again this year, but they have added one more participant. 
    Devin Funchess

    During Saturday's training camp session, Kelvin and Devin joined Cam Newton on the opposite field to work together away from the rest of the team. 
     
    They caught extra passes from Cam Newton while running various routes, and then spoke to Newton about them. 

     
     

     
    Small adjustments were made, and the routes run again. 
     
    During one of the drills, Funchess had a chance to show off his vertical while going for an overthrown ball. I found it fairly impressive. 
     

    I realize this may not seem like much, but it could be early signs of a Kelvin/Devin duo taking over the receiving corps.
     
    Stay tuned.

    Stephen Hill Injury Photos
    Stephen Hill went up for a ball that was thrown slightly behind him and landed awkwardly. He did not collide with anyone. 
    He immediately grabbed the back of his knee, which made me think it was a ligament torn. I can tell you the amount of pain Hill was in was obvious. 

    Gettleman came over to check in as the docs worked on him. 

     
    Whenever an injury happens, all the players take a knee in a prayer or reflection. All of them know it could be them on any day at any time. 

     
    Thomas Davis came over and gave some encouragement. If anyone on the team can offer compassion and understanding for a leg injury, it is Thomas Davis. 

    Hill was unable to walk on his own and was carted off. 

     
    Really tough thing to watch, but it is part of the game and the story of the day. Hopefully Hill can recover and continue his career.
