This might not be the biggest need for the Carolina Panthers. But with DaQuan Jones out of contract next spring, it just depends on just how ready either Bravvion Roy or Daviyon Nixon are to fill in if the veteran does end up being just a one-year rental.

If neither does enough throughout the season to install belief within the primary decision-makers, then the Panthers might decide to acquire a long-term partner for Derrick Brown in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Jordan Davis is a phenomenal prospect that has everything one looks for in a stud interior defensive lineman at the next level. The Georgia prospect is a space-eating monster against the run and has a real knack for causing havoc at just the right time.

His versatility to play either the 1 or 3-techniques is something Carolina will undoubtedly love. It’s formed a key part of their recruitment process since Matt Rhule became head coach and if the Panthers take a similar approach next time around, Davis will be a prospect to monitor.

The Bulldogs appear poised for a fantastic season judging by their opening four weeks. Davis has been a huge part of that and his style of play is something that’s sure to make a smooth transition to the professional ranks.
