Which Carolina Panthers players find their stock shrinking after the first few days of training camp ahead of the 2021 season?

The first official week of the Carolina Panthers 2021 training camp is in the books. Players got a well-deserved day off on Sunday before returning to the practice field later today, with the imminent arrival of padded sessions something that’s going to make the next couple of weeks incredibly interesting for all involved.

It’s hard to gauge just what can be determined from the opening few days of camp. According to league rules, there is a bedding-in period needed before things ramp up considerably ahead of the regular season, but that does not mean certain players cannot rise or fall in the team’s plans initially.

The Panthers have a lot of new faces that need to gel quickly in pursuit of making more of a splash in 2021. Not only this, but some big decisions need to be made about just where these new recruits fit in with current members of the roster.

With this in mind, here are five Panthers players whose stock has fallen slightly over the first week of training camp.

Much has been made about the offensive line throughout training camp so far. General manager Scott Fitterer stated it’s a fluid situation and didn’t rule out the possibility of bringing in additional reinforcements if the right opportunity comes along, sot there could be plenty of twists and turns to come yet.

Carolina has chopped and changed the starting rotation during the four practices so far, even giving stud right tackle Taylor Moton reps on the blindside to see if this is a viable option the team could utilize.

However, Dennis Daley has been used sparingly with the first-team unit, meaning the former sixth-round pick has a real fight on his hands in the coming weeks. Things might look bleak for the lineman at the moment, but there is still time to turn things around.
