Make sure he stays away from Bojangle's. The downfall of great lineman that have no self discipline.

Did he just not pan out in Oakland or something?

We really need him or Bell to step up and play at a high level.

The only reason that he wasn't able to succeed in Oakland was because of a lack of directed attention from the coaching staff. Campbell requires special teaching. Something Oakland wasn't willing to provide. They drafted based on measurables, something that Al Davis' Raiders typically did. When he wasn't able to catch on quickly with the same level of coaching as everyone else...well too bad so sad.

This kid has a learning disability that stems from a brain disorder that required surgery at a young age. He has extreme difficulty conceptualizing. If you look at his draft analysis there were experts that claimed that he would never succeed because he was flat out stupid - he got like a 5 wonderlic. He can't read, or at least well, either.

He is a physical monster but he requires a teachers touch, which is hopefully something that this coaching staff is willing to give. He had specialty coaches dedicated just to him at Maryland. The potential is there for sure, it just has to be massaged out of him in the right way.

Oakland tried to slide him inside to guard. It didn't work.

As long as Forrest can keep Cam from getting lit up, he's alright with me.

I believe they also had him playing Guard during his tenure in Oakland, hopefully playing him at his natural position here in Carolina will allow him to develop quicker.

Who has panned out in Oakland?
Pretty sure that place has been a coaching and organizational nightmare for about a decade now.

Anyway I like that he plays until the whistle, looks alot like Amini's tape coming out of college. If he's in good shape he'll find a place here, maybe not as a starter but as a rotational guy. With the offense we run we need as many linemen that are fleet footed as possible.

Yeah this as well. Given this kids learning problems, the idea that they tried to change his position, after the level of specialty teaching required while at Maryland for him to be able to play tackle, is fuging beyond stupid.

Wow I didn't know any of that, quite sad. Hopefully we can get him a good one on one tutor so we can pay him the big bucks to support himself after football.
