Pro Football Network ranks the offensive lines

I think there's a very real possibility they're going to try Taylor Moton on the left and look for the best possible option on the right.

Could be Christensen, could be Erving, maybe even Scott or Daley if he can stay healthy.

What a boon it would be if that worked.  Moton becomes the answer at LT, and we platoon that right side.  Can I go ahead and sign up for that now?

From what I've read, the team thought there was really only one franchise left tackle in the draft, and he was taken before our pick.

And he is now playing right tackle.

Didn’t address the OL? Lost all credibility right there. We drafted a couple OL, both of whom have a lot of potential

I know right?

I don't understand why some people want to dis on Brady before pads are even on. 

He has the tape, the highest pff rate for a drafted college olineman in history,  the lowest pressure rate in the draft, a awesome RAS, and experience against a 1st rounder DE and a few P5 schools.  I understand his arms are short, but I just don't get why all these rankings didn't assume him for LT.   

Its all just paper now and they refuse to look at his paper.

They assumes the rookies beat the vets on other teams.

I wonder if Fitterer is keeping up with Morgan Moses. If they extend Moton, they could use the cap savings to help bring in Moses on a 2ish year deal.

Well if Darnold is running for his life come October we will be sure to revisit this.

That doesn’t change there not being a good option beside Sewell in the draft. Christensen might be as good as any other option after him. It’s basically the same line as last year which was just below average. Okung played less than half the time and Scott played serviceable. So Erving will compete with Scott and if he wins the job he is more than likely the better option. Miller, Daley, Paradis, and Moton were all there last year. Now we have Christensen to either take a guard spot or possibly RT if Moton goes LT. It’s not great but not terrible. Moton, Erving/Daley/Elf, Paradis, Miller, Christensen doesn’t seem bad with Brown possibly competing for a guard spot as well.

The Panthers have invested a chunk of resources into their offensive line through free agency and the 2021 NFL Draft. Having signed Pat Elflein and Cam Erving on the first day of legal tampering, the Panthers followed that up by selecting BYU’s Brady Christensen in the third round and Alabama guard Deonte Brown in the sixth with Grambling State’s David Moore signed as a priority UDFA. 

Adding three new young players into the mix is important for several reasons. Firstly, it fits the larger pattern of the Panthers looking to get younger across the board and create a roster that can grow together. It also gives the Panthers a chance to create a long-term solution to their offensive line problem, which can hopefully form the backbone of the roster for years to come.

This is certainly an approach that has worked out well for other teams around the NFC South, with the Saints unit being anchored around Terron Armstead (3rd round, 2013), Andrus Peat (1st round, 2015) and Ryan Ramcyzk (1st round, 2017). The result has been one of – if not the – best offensive lines in the NFL over the last four seasons.

Umm, I get your point on adding young OL but since we fired Gettleman, we’ve invested a 2nd (on Little unfortunately), 3rd, 6th, 6th and a bunch of undrafted in 4 drafts. Comparing that to an OL which is made up of 3 1sts, 1 2nd and a great 3rd, is kind of silly. NO invested heavy draft capital (without any busts) in their OL and we wasted a high pick on Little and invested very little draft capital. Maybe we get lucky and Erving and Elflein have dramatic turn arounds or the young guys shock, but more likely we are going to be investing a poo ton in OL the next couple years.

Christensen could be good or he could be another Little it is a crapshoot regardless of this analytics we are being sold. Well in truth all we have right now is a hope that Moton may slide to the left. We have no confirmation that he wants to let alone that he will be comfortable there long term. Even if that does happen he will want to be paid for that position and if we do and it doesn't work out where does that leave us? Another albatross contract? There are still a lot of unknowns rn.

With a void at left tackle once again until proven otherwise this is hard to argue with. Our starting center was complained about to no end last year. Our depth isn't much better either. But homers gonna homer.

Taylor Moton might be the NFL’s best right tackle, if not the most underrated one. We  also have a pair of respectable projected starters at right guard and center with John Miller and Matt Paradis. The left side of the line is where things get really dicey.

I think not enough credit is being given to Brady and Teddy for how "not that terrible" the Panthers OL looked last year. 

 

I fully agree and this 2021 season will be another year the OL coaches will have to excel if we are to have a halfway decent OL.

Even Miller and Paradis are average at best. The one thing we also had last year was relatively good health outside of Okung but he was the least surprising injury. We need 2-3 OL to step up this year and we need be lucky with injuries. 2021 isn’t a make or break year for us but it would be nice if the OL wasn’t a hindrance to Darnold’s development.

We still need to invest more higher picks on the OL future and god forbid we don’t extend Moton. We don’t have a single proven above average OL signed for 2022. That’s downright scary considering we knew we didn’t have that before this off-season. Erving and Elflein better turn their careers around or we are in OL rebuild yet again. Ever since 2017, we’ve been scrambling. From 2014 second half through 2017, we had a great core and just needed a LT. Then we lost Norwell, Kalil couldn’t stay healthy, Turner got fat, Williams got hurt and we are where we are because Hurney did nothing in 2018/2019 to add depth and future starters besides reaching for Little and paying $2M+ per game played to Okung as a stop gap since Little sucked.

Yeah he could be another Little, but people can’t complain we don’t draft any and then say they could be the next Little when we do. What exactly is our staff suppose to do? We brought it some average to below FAs to compete and drafted young players in Christensen and Brown while also drafting Tremble to help with blocking.
