I don't like to sit here and pretend I know who is rising and falling. I know a good play when I see one but everyone is practicing at different speeds. Tutu has dropped a couple balls but so has everyone including Steve Smith. Kuechly is going well, that is for certain. Other than that only the coaches know who is doing well. Jarred Green has caught a few deep balls but it was blown coverage. I haven't see him just beat guys.

I'll call Beason a riser as well. He doesn't look like a guy about to lose his job.

INSTANT REPLAYS

Defensive end Charles Johnson made perhaps the play of camp thus far. On a wide receiver screen thrown by quarterback Cam Newton toward Smith, Johnson faked like he was coming after Newton but then backpedaled and stepped in the path of Newton's toss for a leaping interception.

--On a subsequent snap, cornerback Chris Gamble picked off Newton on a deep pass intended for wide receiver Brandon LaFell that sailed long.

--After the back-to-back "chippy" plays, safety Sherrod Martin sniffed out a reverse designed for Smith and swiped the ball from an unsuspecting Newton.

--Safety Haruki Nakamura found a way to slow down tight end Greg Olsen, a favorite target throughout camp. On a fade pattern for Olsen in the end zone, the 5-10 Nakamura brought the 6-5 Olsen down to size by bringing him to the ground with the ball in flight.

There were no flags on the play only because there are no flags in play – referees weren't present for the practice though they occasionally are.

Anderson and fellow linebacker Luke Kuechly also stepped in front and broke up passes intended for Olsen.

--Wide receiver Kealoha Pilares found the end zone twice on underneath routes, and fellow wideout Armanti Edwards continued a sure-handed camp with a touchdown.

--Overall, the Panthers went heavy on run plays during team periods, with Stewart and rookie Tauren Poole ripping off nice runs. Fullback Mike Tolbert also made a dazzling one-handed catch on a ball thrown behind him in the deep flat.

Hoebuck, I assume you are Jaxon from Cat Scratch Reader.

If not, this is blatant plagiarism.


Given that you have now gone back and edited in the link, apparently the latter characterization was the accurate one.

For the App State fans out there you'll be happy to know that Armanti Edwards looked really solid yesterday. His cuts are getting better, and he made some tough catches. His main competition, Joe Adams, didn't get a lot of reps at WR yesterday.

I think poole will make the 53 as the #3 RB (tolbert listed at FB) hes looked decent so far.

I think Van Bergen has a slim chance, he can play UT, 5 tech and 43 DE in a pinch.

I disagree with hokebuck about Barnidge. He looked pretty good on Saturday and I've not heard of any particularly bad plays. I think he'll be a good pass catching #2 TE.

I haven't noticed Roger Allen playing well at guard but he's had trouble with the snap as center. I've seen at least 3 botched snaps/shotgun hikes in three practices.

Someone asked about #18 Lamont Bryant. I have not seen him get many reps. In fact he did not participate in the 3rd practice. Might not be in shape or behind on the playbook. Not sure but he isn't seeing much action.

Gary Barnidge had and up-and-down day. Early on the far field he dropped a couple of passes, and wasn't in his element; but by the end of the session he was going over the middle, making some nice catches, and became more comfortable. It's safe to chalk up the early struggles as him getting the rust off.

Tauren Poole has looked ok but it's hard to say if he makes the team. Right now you have Stew,D-Will, and Tolbert whom are locks. Then you have Brockel who is near a lock. That's 4 RB/FB in a single back offense. You could see them re-purpose Pilares as a scat-back as well. If someone goes down Poole has a great chance but right now I wouldn't go over 50/50.

The problem with Barnidge is he's having the most success in Greg Olsen's second team slot. The Panther's second tight end has to motion around and block often. Barnidge isn't a physical blocker. I'm seeing guys like Tolbet, Hartstock, and Brockel fill that 2nd TE position.

WRs seem to always look better in training camp .Does anyone have a sense which ones will make it ? Does Green have any special team attributes? How will the Gettis injury play in to this?

I heard they were using Pilares as a back.How does he look in that roll?
