Panthers: NFL Combine Prospects to Watch
Dalton Schultz, TE – Stanford
6-foot-6, 242 pounds
Coach Rivera discussed putting the offense into more two tight end sets last season but an injury to Greg Olsen limited their production for much of the season. With a new offensive coordinator, the philosophy may change but finding someone to fill Olsen’s role when he retires will be critical for Newton and the success of the offense.
"Schultz is a Y-tight end with the ability as a run blocker to help bolster a team’s rushing attack very quickly. While his frame could still use more mass, he plays with good technique and play strength at the point of attack and shows an ability to impose his will upon edge defenders if they half-step into the rep. Schultz is a capable and reliable target underneath, but his living will depend on how he impacts the running game. Schultz’s limited catch production could drop him a round, but he should be a solid, early starter."
