Prediction No. 3: Carolina Panthers OT Taylor Moton will make the Pro Bowl

Big things are expected from Taylor Moton in 2020. The offensive tackle has a revelation over the last two seasons for the Carolina Panthers. And this is a huge opportunity for him to prove he is worthy of a substantial payday next spring.

The right tackle performed at an incredibly high level in 2019. While the remainder of the offensive line was disappointing at best. Moton provided his capability of being a bookend on the edge that the Panthers have been sorely lacking since the retirement of Jordan Gross.

Moton is now entering his prime, so this could see the player’s game go to even greater heights next time around. If Russell Okung can rid himself of the injury troubles that blighted his final campaign with the Los Angeles Chargers. Then Carolina should have two solid presences at the tackle spot in 2020.

This will give Teddy Bridgewater the best possible chance of succeeding. And it will also put Moton in position to secure his first-ever Pro Bowl appearance.

He is already considered as one of the brightest up and coming lineman in the league. But how he performs next season will go a long way to determining just how much the player could command during upcoming contract talks.

The former second-round pick is projected to command an annual salary of $14 million by Spotrac heading into the final year of his deal. The Panthers will have the financial resources available to make such a commitment next year. And another exceptional year from Moton will leave the organization with no other alternative other than to give him the money he wants.
