Pretty good read on yahoo searched didn't find it.

Kenjon Barner, RB - I know the Panthers have a great one-two punch already with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart in the backfield, but both of those guys have shown their proneness to injuries. Barner really thrived his last two seasons at Oregon. His junior year he ran for 939 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. He came back his senior season and ran for 1,767 yards and 21 touchdowns. He ran for over 100 yards in six games last season. Four of those games he ran for over 190 yards. Carolina has a fast paced offense, similar to what Barner flourished in at Oregon. Barner is exactly what the Panthers are looking for in terms of a change-of-pace back.

I like Barner. Hope I still like him after his rookie season. Also like Lester. Rivera gave him a thumbs up at the mini camp. The DT's are expected to do well, but these two could be nice surprises.

I think we will see more of Barner in 2014, do not see him doing too much this year.

Star & Kugbila will have the most impact.

I think Short may have just as big of an impact as Star just depends on how well we rotate the DTs in and out.

 

Kugbila providing he starts no later than after our bye week.

 

I would say that Klien, Barner and Lester will be solid contributors.

 

Especially Klien.  I think with his versatility he could spell Davis or Beason just to keep them fresh.

Big men rarely make impacts early. Star is among those rare enough to do so but I seriously doubt any of the other big men will this year. Barner and Klein will earn their keep Im betting though also.

Watching Star manhandle his first victim on the way to a sack or forced fumble is going to be marvelous.

I keep debating Star or Hardy as my next jerseys...

I think kugbila will have a real impact on an exercise bike.

I like the idea of Barner. I also liked the idea of Joe Adams. Although, Barner's sample size is much larger being that he ran sh*t last year.

Klein on special teams could have a big impact.

I think Kug will make the least amount of impact out of the draft class this year. Cameron takes out pickles, and Lester contributes some as well. With that said, I think I have hit my ceiling for post before training camp.
