Round 3(a) - Carolina Panthers Select BYU OT Brady Christensen

He could probably start at guard for us immediately. 

Highly unlikely to be an NFL OT but we need just about every OL position other than RT, so if he can start at guard, it's an improvement. 

Very perplexing that we just took one OL in the first three rounds.

I am perplexed by Christensen.

Supposedly has an insane pass blocking grade. All American. Super athletic and strong.

But when I watch him, he seems to get pushed back quite a lot. Not pushed back all the way into the QB, but def back.

I would like to see him set his anchor a bit better and keep more distance between him and the QB.

Also, he seems more of a finesse OT. Doesn't seem as violent and always looking for work as say Jenkins. 

I am confused, but hopeful. We really need him to work out as a LT or at the very least a LG.

That's where is value was.  Most boards had him topping out at mid-third round.  He was my last hope for a LT this draft.  I had a sigh of relief when his named was called.

Same arm length as Penei Sewell and 1/4 of an inch longer than Rashawn Slater.

No. Both Sewell and Slater have 33 inch arms.

Christensen has 32 inch arms.

33 in arms are a negative.

So you can only imagine what 32 in arms are.

34 in arms is considered the starting point people want for an OT.

The longer the better.

Two things he has to be coached up on, his feet and nastiness. His kick-step is sloppy and undisciplined.  He seems too content on doing just enough to win the rep instead of beating his man handily.

his feet are fine.

his problem is hands and anchoring quicker.

Hand placement/usage is 100% coachable.  Getting big dudes with 'two left feet' to learn to waltz, well that's a bit harder to do.  He has the size and strength to anchor, but is content on trying to wash the defender instead engaging.
