Troy Pride....Speedster


 Share

Recommended Posts

Some of the knocks on CB Troy Pride leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft were a lack of aggressiveness, both in terms of attacking the ball in coverage as well as attacking in the running game as a tackler.

Pride is going to need to develop more of an edge rather quickly with the Panthers, who are going to be all about speed and toughness under Matt Rhule.

 He has all of the raw tools and athleticism to be effective, but needs to prove he can be physical and aggressive enough? Time will tell.

Baptism by fire.  He took a lot of lumps last year as a rookie...but that D finished pretty strong.  

You have to as a CB. Horn will take his lumps as well but having a young unit that can grow is a good thing. Also having speed at that position is necessary.

He was often in position last season but couldn't locate the ball or make plays on the ball.

Pride is in dog fight for staying on the roster. Panthers added Horn, AJ, Taylor and vet Melvin. Panthers mainly carry 4, sometimes 5 CBs and Djak should make the team as well. AJ is missing the first two weeks and that may help Prides chances. Amazing to see where the CB group was at the 2019 off-season compared to now. 

STO is another one whos fighting for a roster spot as well, good problem to have...

If we keep 4-5 max, your list should start with Horn and Jackson.  Bouye, Melvin, and Taylor were brought in. Pride is gonna have to unseat one of them.

Pride is at worst solid depth. He had no business being in some of the matchups he was as often as he was last season and he still looked okay as a late round pick. Depth guy/STer with potential to grow isn't a bad thing.

He shouldn't have too much problem with Melvin. If he's looking better you go with your young draft pick in my opinion

Pretty much what I said?  If he performs well he un-seats the journeyman vet.  All the better.

I think it was combination experience, scheme and help.

Hopefully all are improved this year.

He apparently has the speed.
