Countdown to training camp: Defensive line


Recommended Posts

...

Morgan Fox can play inside on passing downs, and had 6.0 sacks for the Rams last year

Daquan Jones could have even more impact....he's also the kind of big-body who can chew up blocks, and could allow Brown more room to work.

The Panthers used fifth- and seventh-round picks on defensive tackles Daviyon Nixon and Phil Hoskins... Nixon in particular has the kind of athleticism to make him intriguing to watch in camp.

23-year-old Brian Burns .. (he's actually younger than some of last year's draft picks)...He had 9.0 sacks last year, and had enough near-misses to give him the appearance of a consistent double-digit sack guy.

Marquis Haynes, a 2018 fourth-rounder, finished last year with 4.0 sacks, which was third-most on the team.

Bravion Roy was a steady player against the run as a rookie, with the seventh-round pick from Baylor ... works hard (he's generally one of the first players onto the practice field every day)

Christian Miller goes to camp as an unknown commodity to this staff. The 2019 fourth-rounder opted out of last season over concerns about COVID-19... He showed some pop as a pass-rusher at Alabama

Fine summary of our depth, and potential.  But you omitted Gros-Matos (who was included on the Panthers.com article), and Reddick -- who while perhaps being considered a LB, will no doubt have a huge effect on the success of the DL's pass rush.

So, including those 2 in the mix, we have a versatile and dangerous DL.

I mean, if you can't trust a fellow Huddler. Who can you trust? 

 

But yeah, we should be pretty dang good up front. This D has the potential to really shine. I tell ya what.
