OTAs Start Tomorrow for the Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers begin their organized team activities tomorrow. Obviously I won't be able to attend but are these open to the public? If not, is anyone able to get down to the practice facilities to find a view of the field and take some notes and report back?

 

Keep in mind there is no contact allowed during this time. 

 

Things to watch in OTAs:

 

How well our rookies are able to adapt to the speed of the game and pick up new concepts?

 

How some of our injured players from the previous season look. Are the held out of certain drills and working on their own to rehab? Are they running around and looking active?

 

Are the new additions at receiver, Ginn and Hixon in particular, developing some rapport with Cam? How does Joe Adams seem to be developing? Are Nelson Rosario and/or Lamont Bryant sleepers to make the squad and produce?

 

Which cornerbacks are making the most of their opportunities to earn the starting nod?

 

Have Cam's mechanics and accuracy improved from the previous year? Is he more consistent?

 

Are there new looks being installed by new offensive coordinator Mike Shula?

 

Obviously it is pretty difficult to really answer these questions in OTAs when teams are just getting back together and aren't in pads. However, I think it should be possible to see who flashes and at least looks the part. One should be able to gauge who is separating themselves from the pack throughout OTAs and possibly gaining the coaches support.

Zod isn't the public, he's a credentialed member of the media. Also, the OP asked if it was open to the public, thus my response.

It was closed to the public. I hung out outside of the gates couldn't see much. But for what it's worth, Beason came out about 20 minutes behind the rest of the team, drenched in sweat and still signed autographs for the five fans that showed up.  Star has the most massive arms I have ever seen, really quiet and humble as well.  Brandon Williams  is huge and ripped up like no other...  

 

not much but figured I would share.
