Myles Hartsfield – Carolina Panthers DB

There is a lot to like about the way Myles Hartsfield has applied himself this season. The undrafted rookie was one of the stars at training camp and has made his presence felt during limited reps throughout the campaign.

Hartsfield is versatile enough to play anywhere in the secondary and has even been given some carries as a running back by the Carolina Panthers. Considering how disappointing Tre Boston has been in 2020, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to get Hartsfield more involved at some stage over their remaining three fixtures.

The former Ole Miss standout has accumulated five tackles and two forced fumbles from just five percent of the team’s defensive snaps. Hartsfield is a talented young player that could care out a role with the Panthers long-term, but it is hard to gauge just what that will be until we see him gain more in the way of experience than he has acquired so far.

This is another lost season for the Panthers, which was to be expected during year one of their rebuild. Plans are already being formed by the powers that be regarding the current roster, free agency targets, and 2021 NFL Draft prospects, so getting a better look at players like Hartsfield should – at the very least – make the decision process a little easier for everybody involved.
