Carolina Panthers’ offensive line

  • Ikem Ekwonu, Brady Christensen, Bradley Bozeman, Austin Corbett, Taylor Moton, Pat Elflein, Cade Mays, Cameron Erving, Michael Jordan.

The offensive line struggled mightily in the 2021 season as they were poorly coached and didn’t have the appropriate personnel. One major addition this year is Ikem Ekwonu, who will play left tackle after the Carolina Panthers snapped up the top prospect on their board at No. 6 overall.

Austin Corbett will hold it down at right guard. Bradley Bozeman will play center whenever he gets healthy, so the protection should see a dramatic change in how they operate if everything goes according to plan.

Also returning on the line is Taylor Moton, who has been rock solid at the right tackle position. Brady Christensen will most likely man the left guard spot after a somewhat promising rookie season and some notable adjustments during the preparation period.

Not only did the Panthers upgrade their players on the line, but they also went out and brought in one of the best offensive line coaches in the league, James Campen. The experienced figure will have the players prepared and ready to succeed.

The offensive line has some better depth now. A couple of starters from last season will be coming off of the bench in 2022, which isn’t a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination.
