Impressive reps from Carolina Panthers rookie OL trio

It’s been a quiet start to training camp for the three rookie offensive linemen acquired by the Carolina Panthers this offseason. Brady Christensen, Deonte Brown, and David Moore have been brought along slowly by the coaching staff so far, which is the smart way to go as the team builds things up from here on out.

However, it was noticeable that all three looked like they could play a part somewhere down the line during their reps on Tuesday. All three had some really nice moments during 11-on-11 drills, which formed a big part of practice after Matt Rhule was far from happy on Day 5.

If there was one player who might force his way into the starting lineup right away, it’s Christensen. Just where that’s going to be is still being worked out, but the Panthers didn’t move up to acquire the BYU product in the third round to not use him prominently right out of the gate.

Brown’s dominance at Alabama was there for all to see. Providing he can keep his weight in check, the Panthers could have a productive starter on their hands with a little more refinement in the coming weeks.

Don’t sleep on Moore, either. The versatile lineman impressed the coaching staff at the Senior Bowl and was scooped up quickly by Carolina in undrafted free agency.

More days like this will help their cause. Especially considering the inconsistent performances of some veterans slotted to start.
