Because all that talk of a beastly front seven goes through Star.

 

The leader of that front 7 is Kuechly, without a doubt. Then it becomes the CJ/Kraken show. Star is there, initially, to provide a capable body. He'll do great.

 

Besides, Amini has played in the pros for a year, going up against Gerald McCoy, etc. I'm sure he's seen a couple of things. He'll know how to handle a rookie like Star.

The Panthers opened camp to a smaller crowd than last season, but it was still one of the biggest crowds in the 19 year history of having camp in Spartanburg. The first day of camp is a lot like the first day of school. No real work is given, the goal is to ease into training camp mode. The players do not wear pads the first two days of camp per their collective bargaining agreement. Once the pads are on, which will happen Sunday I am told, expect more action and the real competition to begin.

 

 

 

You can see in the pics. that they are wearing some type of shoulder pads. What are they?

Small foam pads that offer minimal protection.

Thanks General.

Can you keep an eye out or post any updates about Barner? I'm kind of excited to see what he can do as far as catching passes out of the backfield and on special teams.

i had wanted to post that vid. He totally owned Star on that snap, made me worry about Star..

The epitome of a Training Camp doomsayer...

It seems to me Star has always relied on his brute strength and explosiveness to get by in college. At this level he'll need to be coached up a bit on footwork and technique. In his own words, he's not much of a "finesse" guy. I'm guessing the coaching staff in college kinda just let him do his thing and unleashed him on the poor opposing o-line, but now he'll have to learn about leverage and the proper stance and all that technical shizz. He's gonna be a beast though!!!!

I can't believe people are already even starting to evaluate Star.

A rookie in his first ever pro practice getting owned by a guy with a year's pro experience is not something I'd worry too much about.

We knew he was raw and there would be some transition. I still think he'll be fine in time.
