Jawuan James - OT - Tennessee

With the Panthers in dire need of two new tackles, I believe they may be taking a long look at Jawuan James to compete immediately for the starting right tackle position.

James fits the mold of a David Gettleman lineman 6'6" and 311 pounds. His frame could easily put on another 10 pounds by September. At Tennessee, James showed NFL caliber strength and speed as well as technique. James has the ability to head down field in search of second level defenders on run plays and scrambles.

Set a UT record for 49 games started by an offensive lineman, all at right tackle. His durability is unquestioned. His extensive experience at RT makes him a possible game 1 starter.

James is currently projected in rounds 3 or 4, which makes him a prime target for the Panthers late 3rd round pick.
