Carolina Panthers getting more from Myles Hartsfield
There’s been plenty of injury concerns within the cornerback room throughout training camp. This has been frustrating despite some impressive performances, with one player coming in for substantial praise after another standout showing on Saturday.
Myles Hartsfield deserves an endless amount of credit for rising from an undrafted free agent onto the defensive rotation. The defensive back can operate on the backend or in the nickel cornerback spot – versatility that is clearly valued by the Carolina Panthers based on their recruitment process since Matt Rhule took charge.
The Ole Miss product came up with a notable highlight during the scrimmage, snatching a ball out of D.J. Moore’s hands for an interception. This further enhanced his chances of making the team and playing an important role in 2022.
Rhule lauded Hartsfield following the practice. One of Carolina’s real success stories under the head coach and hopes are high he can make a bigger impact next season.
"“Myles Hartsfield has to be one of the guys who’s coming along at a high level during this camp, I can’t say enough about what Myles has done.”"
With the likes of C.J. Henderson, Keith Taylor Jr., and Jaycee Horn all missing time in camp, Hartsfield has come to the fore. Something that can only assist the Panthers moving forward.
