Tyler Larsen

And finally, the winner, with a final score of 65.90… Tyler Larsen. Larsen filled in adequately at center last season for an injured Ryan Kalil.

Larsen bounced around the league after going undrafted in 2014 before landing in Carolina in 2016. Since then, he’s been an important depth piece on the offensive line and has started numerous games for the Panthers.

Last season, Larsen scored a 67.8 from Pro Football Focus and a 70 from EA Sports. The NFL gave him a 52.8 at the beginning of his career, and he gets a 74 for his age of 26. Larsen’s final score of 65.90 is the winner. Times are tough.

Larsen is a great candidate for the job because of his skill and experience. He’s played in 23 games for Carolina in his career.

All in all, the Panthers have a few solid candidates for the left guard job, and I hope someone steps up and takes it in training camp.
