This is one of the biggest battles going into camp this year. On one hand, we have Mike Goodson. He has the advantage of being one of the Panthers draft picks, and a rather high one as a 4th rounder. A Heisman candidate at one point, and a fast back registering a 4.54 time in the NFL Draft. However, in the Panthers preseason and regular season games he has also displayed a tendency to fumble, and his skillset has not seemed to have transferred to the next level of talent in the NFL. He was one of the biggest disappointments in special teams last year on punt/kick returns, making the fans cringe every time he touches the ball. A lot of talent here to call on if Diangelo Williams or Stewart were to one day leave us, but can he produce?
Cheers to the guy in the side-thread who linked it recently.
On the other hand, Tyrell Sutton has a twitter account here and he has just recently told Bmitch8042 to “stop that BS!“ Yup, that pansy just got called out. He also played wonderfully as a undersized fullback when the Hoov and Fiametta went down, and he pulled off possibly one of the best efforts a backup could ever put up in the wake of a fallen veteran. He's also currently penciled in as a kickoff returner, securing himself a place on special teams if not anything else.
Should we even care? If Mike Goodson gets in as the #3 RB and Tyrell Sutton gets in as one of the kickoff return specialists, there is a good chance that they could both be on our team.
Thoughts? Comments? Which one of these guys will win the #3 RB job and which one hits the curb if we can only keep one?
