Cam Erving – Carolina Panthers OT

For the eighth time in as many years, the Carolina Panthers will be entering the season with a new starter at left tackle.

Since Jordan Gross retired in 2013, the blindside position in Carolina has been a revolving door. With the Russell Okung experiment last year now over, someone else will now be tasked with holding down the blind spot for quarterback Sam Darnold this year following his trade from the New York Jets.

Cam Erving, who was signed this offseason and has experience playing all over the offensive line, seems like he will have first dibs at starting at left tackle, which is a scary proposition based on his previous production.

However, some have reported that the Panthers are trying many players at left tackle.

Greg Little will have another chance to prove his worth, but his time in Carolina seems to be ticking. Rookie Brady Christensen might be just a little too young and raw but could outperform his expectations.

Dennis Daley could also be an option if the Panthers don’t feel comfortable putting Erving there.

Once again, the left tackle spot will be one of the most pivotal battles to watch during training camp and Erving will need to make some big improvements to enter the season with any sort of confidence.
