he had to have brain surgery in high school and has an undisclosed learning disability from what i've read. the raiders were unsurprisingly not patient with him and tried to force him in at guard when he wasn't picking up the tackle spot quickly enough.

he's unquestionably a physical freak and is talented enough to be a top five tackle. the only question is his coachability and whether he can handle how mentally taxing the position is.

his ceiling is much higher than Bell's at RT. Better athlete.

I'd like a fair competition to be going on in camp

I'd be good with this. I agree that athletically, Campbell looks like a prototype NFL OT. Give him a shot in camp. Nothing to lose.

I has been noted, in this very thread, that he played 35 snaps last year.

Is there a rule that claims you cannot pull for a backup? If so, I am not aware of it. Although I am admittedly no maven. One of my favorite Pantherz is Bell. Although he may be a starter, he very well could lose his job to Campbell. If Campbell can put it all together. Which would make Bell a back-up, and make us a better team at the same time.

He was on the team the whole year, he will be getting a full offseason of work, and he has the talent. If he can put those all to good use, he may actually be able to help us on the feild.

He is already on the team and has been given his shot. So far his years in the league and the opportunity he has been given shows he doesn't have it.

When was he given a legit shot to beat out Bell? Seemed to me that the staff preferred him to focus on backing up Gross at LT because we literally had no other option for that.

Not yet...yr 1 on a new team and moving back positions doesn't mean he had his shot already.

He is a T. Oak clearly misused him. He might not be a NFL player but he was never a G. Rivera said he was still getting adjusted here

If we go into any season with Bell and Campbell as our 1st string tackles, we have failed miserably.
