4 major observations from Matt Corral in Panthers 2022 training camp
By Dean Jones
Carolina Panthers must be patient with Matt Corral
Time is something a lot don’t have in the NFL. And the term development project can quickly go the other way depending on results and the desperation that follows.
Regardless of how the Carolina Panthers fare this season – and it’s still up in the air right now – influential figures within the organization should not divert from their plan with Matt Corral. Otherwise, it could come with grave consequences for the promising quarterback.
The Panthers will want to see improvements from the signal-caller throughout the campaign. Corral is certainly a willing learner and has been a sponge during camp, taking any tips or advice he can from coaches and the veteran quarterbacks on the roster.
As stated previously, there were highlights at Wofford College that suggest Corral can become a starting-caliber player at the position. But it’s also evident he needs more time.
Corral has some things you cannot teach. The release is exceptional and there is a fearless nature to his play that’s hard not to love, even if this needs to be harnessed in the correct manner against NFL defenders that will punish every mistake.
Considering the sample size, Corral’s time in camp was encouraging. And there is an enormous sense of intrigue surrounding his preseason reps.
