Offensive line (10)

  • Russell Okung
  • Taylor Moton
  • Matt Paradis
  • John Miller
  • Dennis Daley
  • Michael Schofield
  • Greg Little
  • Sam Tecklenburg
  • Tyler Larsen
  • Aaron Monteiro

This is an area of the field that poses more than its fair share of concerns. The starting five on the Carolina Panthers’ offensive line looks set. But how they get on in the face of some concerted pressure is going to go a long way to determining the team’s overall fortunes.

They do potentially have two bookend tackles to provide protection on the edge in Taylor Moton and Russell Okung. To say the duo are in different stages of their career would be something of an understatement. However, they do have some tremendous upside providing the Super Bowl winner can stay clear of the injury problems that blighted his last season with the Los Angeles Chargers.

John Miller and Dennis Daley are projected to start at guard as they look to fill the void left by perennial Pro Bowler Trai Turner. Both come into the season with questions to answer and their task would be aided considerably if starting center Matt Paradis returns to the player of old.

Picking the right sort of depth is another crucial element to the coaching staff’s final roster picks. One would suspect that Greg Little and Michael Schofield are locked to make the team. Tyler Larsen is another who should be Paradis’ primary backup in 2020 with little other alternatives elsewhere.

Undrafted free-agent Sam Tecklenburg has been one of camp’s surprise performers and this might be enough to get him a shocking place on the roster. Aaron Monteiro is another that has caught the eye, so it might come with a chance to stake a strong claim after failing to make it onto a roster in 2019.
