Which Carolina Panthers players are on the upward curve during the early stages of 2021 training camp at Wofford College?

We are now four practices into the Carolina Panthers training camp ahead of the 2021 season. Things were noticeably ramped up during their Back Together Saturday session at Gibbs Stadium, which was a fantastic occasion, and saw the pads go on for the first time during the preparation period.

There is a real belief that the Panthers could be capable of big things if everything goes right.

The questions surrounding the offensive line are apparent, obviously. Sam Darnold also needs to start living up to his potential under center after Carolina struck a deal to acquire the quarterback from the New York Jets.

Outside of this, there don’t appear to be many weaknesses across the board. The Panthers did a nice job of bringing in the right sort of quality during free agency and the 2021 NFL Draft, but getting off on the right foot will be key ahead of some sterner challenges as the campaign progresses.

It’s important to remember that there is still a long way to go at camp. The tempo will increase even more in the coming days ahead of scrimmages with the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens, with preseason games also set to determine the fate of some players right on the fringes.

Without further ado, here are five players that appear to be trending up early during the first few days of Panthers training camp.
