With 21 undrafted rookies on hand, it's kind of hard to sift through who's got a chance to make an impact -- or earn a roster spot here.
But by watching the way they're lining guys up, and listening to comments from coaches and players, you can tell some of the ones they've got their eye on.
T Gerald Cadogan was thought to be a third-round talent, but the Panthers jumped on him quickly after the draft. They've been working him on the right side this weekend, and while it's hard to accurately gauge linemen until they're in pads, he appears to have some promise there. He played on the left in college, but may not have the feet to step in for Jordan Gross, God forbid anything happened to him. (Realistically, the backup LT is LG Travelle Wharton.)
There are also some positive sounds being made about G C.J. Davis, who's a solid, almost stocky (i.e. short-legged) interior blocker, along with LBs Anthony Heygood and Mortty Ivy.
-- One guy who was drafted who presents some intriguing possibilities is fourth-round RB Mike Goodson. He's on the skinny legged side, but he's extremely quick. Writers use this word too much sometimes, but he's flashed in the non-contact practice, able to change direction quickly. He gives them some potential as a third-down back/slot receiver, adding a different type of player to the offensive arsenal.
-- They had an unusual first group on defense Saturday, as they were doing team drills without six starters. With Julius Peppers, Damione Lewis, Jon Beason, Na'il Diggs, Chris Harris and Chris Gamble out (with Charles Johnson gone to a funeral), here was the lineup:
LDE Brayton Brown
LDT Hayden Irvin
RDT Kemoeatu Favorite
RDE Taylor Brinkley
SLB Anderson L.Johnson
MLB Connor Leman
WLB T.Davis Juergens
CB Wilson Wesley
CB Marshall Martin
SS Salley Fields
