Panthers minicamp observations and such

Recommended Posts

I was pretty excited about going into OTA's and mini-camp about our Offensive Line.  I thought there were plenty of new additions that we would have heard some excitement out of our staff.   Outside of the Panthers saying Christensen arms were too short, we haven't heard much. 

It's either lack of excitement or the Panthers are keeping mum on the O-line.

Let's hope it's the latter.

It’s by far the biggest question mark aside from Darnold. The D looks and feels solid. Big holes were addressed and the young guys are more experienced. WRs, TEs and RBs look to be upgraded from last year. It’s really OL and Darnold and OL could affect both. I just want to feel like we are competing and on the verge of a break out and that Darnold improved and sees the light at the end of the tunnel. If that’s the case, we go heavy OL in 2022 draft starting in the 1st. Please let us keep Moton, but after that we can likely upgrade any position so we could just go BPA OL at every pick. Hopefully, 1 or more of the rookies steps up big time. I have no faith that Erving, Elflein, Paradis and Miller are anything more than JAGs that could hold down a spot waiting on a replacement.

It’s way too early, but PFN had a 2022 top 50 and 10 were OL and another 16 honorable mentions and 5 were OL. So, 15 of top 66, a little under 25%, which based on 22 starters is about the same ratio so I guess it’s about average. No idea if they are uncurling underclassmen but should be plenty to go heavy OL, only problem is the lack of a 2nd, which is typically a great spot for IOL.

The way I look at it is, Paradis, Miller, and Moton played rather well together. So that side should be ok. Not great by any means, but not a total dumpster fire either. Put BC at LG, and throw everyone else at the LT spot. May the best man win. Plus we have Tremble to help, and both CMC, and Chuba are very good at Picking up the blitz.

 

It may not be top shelf, but we should be able to go to war with that lineup.

 

I would not be adverse to throwing some money at a LT in FA, but only on a real LT that can man the position for years. If that fails. Depending on how this year goes, an all Oline draft may not be out of the question.

 

This team is set up so that Oline is the last unit in need of attention. Fix that LT spot once and for all, and this team has potential.

I fully agree that it is Josh Allen.

@ZodAny particular player(s) that caught your eye from how much they've improved?

Out of Pride Jr, STO3, Taylor, Melvin, and Hartsfield who all do you think has the best chance to snag a spot on the roster behind Jaycee, Donte, and Abouye?

How did Sam Franklin look, if he caught your eye at all? After reading up on him when the team initially signed him last year, I expected somebody that they'd try to develop into Chinn-lite while contributing on ST. He played DB at Temple for his first two years, started at the nickel his Jr season, and started at LB his senior season (which was where he was listed during his rookie stint last year). The roster on the Panthers' site has him listed as a safety currently.

Having a Chinn-lite would be great! We can run a Double Chinn package in honor of Fitts!

I was looking to make a Chinn pun somehow and absolutely hate that I missed this most obvious of options. Thank you for helping me keep my Chinn up.

This doesn't deserve it's own thread, but still worth sharing.

I think during this time of year, we can be a little freer with the main posts.  We've had posts on other teams lineman, superbowl 50, bold and meek predictions.   There isn't a ton of news so when a newscaster gives us some love, I thought it might generate some discussion.  I really didn't see it posted on this thread.

Me too. But the average football fan wouldn't watch enough scouting and tape to figure it out. They would see highlights on espn of baker Mayfield throwing a 50 yard pass and it being caught so he must have the strongest arm.
