10. Bravvion Roy – DT

Things did not get off to the best start for Bravvion Roy thanks to illness. But the sixth-round pick has made a solid contribution during the team drills he has participated in.

He is rightfully seen as a development project at this point. And nobody will know more about when he is ready to see the field than his former college coach Matt Rhule.

9. Kenny Robinson – S

There is a lot to like about the enthusiasm that Kenny Robinson is bringing to training camp with the Carolina Panthers. He is clearly relishing the opportunity to stake a claim on the rotation. But there is some stern competition for places at the safety spot.

All the former XFL star can do is keep performing well and remain engaged throughout. It will then be up to Carolina’s coaching staff to decide whether Robinson is worth taking a chance on regarding prominent game time in 2020.

8. Troy Pride Jr. – CB

Big things are expected of the exceptionally gifted Troy Pride Jr. He has found things tough going in stages against the Carolina Panthers’ potent wide receiver weapons. But he has gradually come into his own during team drills.

Rookie players at the cornerback position normally go through their fair share of growing pains at the next level. Pride Jr. won’t be any different in that regard and it remains to be seen how he will cope in the face of expected adversity after having things all his own way at Notre Dame.

7. Myles Hartsfield – DB/RB

Undrafted free-agent Myles Hartsfield has been lighting it up at training camp in recent days. The Carolina Panthers have used the player on both sides of the ball. And his performances at running back is something that has left a notable mark on team drills.

Whether it is going to be enough for Hartsfield to make the roster is still uncertain. But he has the sort of versatility that the coaching staff loves, which should work in his favor.
