Kenyon Green – OL (Texas A&M)

As stated previously, Brady Christensen and Deonte Brown could end up being the starting guards for the Carolina Panthers down the line. Just when that’s going to be is unclear, and age isn’t exactly on the former BYU man’s side as he turns 25 years old next week.

How much both develop during their rookie campaigns will dictate just what the Panthers might do in this area of the field in 2022. If the front office decides that another college prospect is needed, then Kenyon Green is someone with a ton of upside.

The Texas A&M star was a former five-star recruit at tackle. But there is a growing belief that Green might be better suited to the interior once he gets to the NFL.

That’s not a knock on his talent. The potential shift is more down to his style of play than anything else.

Green is a stout presence that uses his frame incredibly well. He is aggressive at the point of attack on running downs and his production also benefits from a high football IQ regarding oncoming rushers in the passing game.

One area that Green could use some work is from a footwork standpoint. But there is a lot to like about his potential with a little more refinement at the pro level.

If Christensen and Brown don’t develop as expected, then Green becomes a realistic candidate depending on how the board develops.
