Daryl Williams to get a look at left guard and left tackle

Recommended Posts

Hurn dog says Williams will get a look at LG and LT . Also sounds like the LT position is Little's job to lose, imo

Hmm so sounds like they want to keep Moton at RT

Also, hasnt Williams in the past said he doesnt prefer OG and wants to play OT?

Wasn't Williams one of the top rated left tackles in preseason his rookie year or am I imagining that

Imagining. I only remember one preseason in 2016 and he looked lost at LT but not bad at RT. Had he looked good, he would have gone in for Oher and kept Remmers at RT.

I don’t recall that before. He was listed as a G/T coming out of college and when he signed he said he’d play anywhere he was needed.

The funny thing is that there are more $9m+ and $10m+ guys at LG and RG than there are RT. While there were 2 bad contracts (Trent Brown and Juwan James) signed this year there are still only 5 RTs making more than $9m. There are 24 Gs and Cs making more than $9m.

The myth that Williams will make more as a RT than a G isn’t true.

Williams should be ready to play whatever position that helps make the Panthers oline strongest.  If Little can handle LT and Moton RT than his greatest contribution is going to be at Left Guard. Paradis at Center and Turner at Right Guard sounds like a pretty solid oline. Maybe one of our best olines.

Id figure that all our tackles will get some reps at LT. Best to have multiple guys that can can fill in if needed.

Found it.

 

This was preseason 2015 where Williams played LT exclusively.

It was the preseason, however. I do think he should get a fair chance to win that LT spot, especially over a rookie. That being said, who do we put inside at LG if Williams starts at LT?

Well, I’ll admit that I don’t remember preseason 2015. I do remember him looking like a hot mess at LT in 2016 preseason. I’ve got a little more hope of the rookie doesn’t live up to expectations. Let’s see how Daryl does this season because 2 2015 preseason games is now about as relevant as his high school days.

Agreed. Seems like guard salary has been on a steep rise lately. $6 million is a good deal for a LG, or even a backup tackle if someone else beats him out at LG.

Van Roton, Larsen, Daley??  We're actually kinda deep, even if none of these strike terror into the hearts of defensive coordinators. VR was certainly serviceable last season.

Yeah, that is kind of my point. That crowd is really better suited to being depth rather than starters, IMO. Ideally, Little just kills and we get to put Williams inside. If he is just clearly not ready, it does leave us a little weak at least in one spot.

Oh well, we will know soon enough.
