Carolina Panthers Training Camp in Photos

Jul 27 2013 06:31 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
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.

Notice where the eyes of the coach are in this pic of the fullback and te blocking drills. His eyes are down at the feet in most of the pics. Tells you how important footwork is in blocking, more so than upper body strength.

Good to see Gettis out there participating. The knee brace a reminder of why he isn't our #2 guy.

Kraken emerges from the water....

Conditioning and strength drills for the wide receivers. Meant to maximize YAC.

Jimmy, I promise you it is open competition at starting QB. Everyone just calm down, no decisions have been made...

Although there were no pads, it seemed to me the defensive line had the advantage. They swarmed to the ball and closed gaps quickly. If they were allowed to tackle I am not certain the offense would have gained much on the ground.

Cam looked good overall. He had a few high throws, but for the most part was on target. Will be interesting to see if the high throws become more frequent once the pads are on and people are in his face.

Pilares looked great at times, not so good at others. Consistency has been his biggest issue so far as a Panther. That appears not to have changed.

Some players can do drills and chew gum at the same time.

I have high hopes for the offensive line this year. If we are to have any running game other than Cam they need to improve, big time.
Posted Image

People are already counting out Joe Adams. I think that may be a mistake. He caught everything thrown his way. Will he still have fumble issues once the pads are on?

JStew in his familiar training camp routine.

Cam pounds it out with a young fan. He was laying down stretching and saw him. Cam teased the boy a bit telling him how much he wanted his sunglasses. The boy denied his request as Cam went over and greeted him. Cam is genuinely great with kids.

Star did not crack a smile the entire practice. He is the anti-Cam. Quiet, serious, I like that about him. Just get the job done young man.

Hope you enjoy the photos. I am heading down again on Sunday for another update.

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 Zod!

Thanks! I think I know what you're talking about.

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.

Some of your best pics yet zod - and great captioning!

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!!!!

Agreed, that's the perception I've always had of Star. He's a physically gifted defensive tackle (especially for his size -- he's no Ngata though) who has relied on those traits and attributes to win in the trenches. Things work differently in the NFL however. Lotulelei is going to need to work on technique and leverage in order to reach his true potential. He's got the tools but he needs proper coaching.

Even if Lotulelei is the poor man's Ngata, that's way more than we've had since Kris Jenkins.

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.

Thanks for the pics guys...

Great pictures zod. Love the one of kraken.

Here are a few from Day two...
