UDFA watch - Brendan Mahon - G - Penn State

Recommended Posts

Brendan Mahon  - Penn St - 6'4 320

I am going to keep an eye on this kid throughout camp. Panthers desperately need depth along the o-line and this guy had success at left guard and also right tackle for a legit football program. Panthers paid him the higher end of the UDFA cash, so they apparently think there may be something as well.

He played LT in 2016 as well.  I watched some tape and he looked good, but he did give up a sack early.  Not a T, but I see G who can backup T in a jam- glad you started this thread.

And if he makes the team, he will have beat out 23 other Guards.  Talk about throwing numbers at a problem..

I sincerely believe, by the way, that Rivera wants Moton at  Left Tackle.  He can bench Matty Nice if he has a quality backup.  Norwell II would certainly be a gift, and that is what they are looking for.

I read he is a better run blocker than pass blocker.  One of the guys opening up holes for barkley. 

Gotta admit tho Norwell spoiled me, 6'6  monster with a mean streak. I hope this guy replace him but that is still big shoes to fill.

Yeah, Norwell was such a wonderful story and great player.

Sadly, Penn State's line was trashed by many going into the draft for their lack of interior blocking resulting in Barkley trying to push every play to the outside.

Maybe he'll turn out?  Man, that would be nice.  Were I him, I'd call up Norwell and see what I had to do to try to match his success.

Norwell wasn't good at all as far as strength and speed.

 

If there was a combine drill for mean though....

Your "Norwell Smash" pictures throughout the years have been some of my favorites.  The rage he had on the field was truly special.

This is my guy too. Mahon is my ANDREW NORWELL. I love how he plays and Penn State fans love him. Great size, moves well and can get to the next level. I’m really hoping we found another Norwell.

Based off last year, we probably need more “better run blocker” guys.

Idk what your talking about Norwell displayed tremendous strength maintaining bull rush from premiere DTs and showed his speed in pulling plays.

He's got a better draft grade on NFL.com than Norwell did coming out.
