How Will Byron Bell Perform This Year


He needs to be better this year and he's made steady improvement

In his first Panthers training camp, Bell was just trying to make the team. Last year he was trying to cut down on penalties.

Bell was called for 14 penalties during his rookie season after the Panthers picked him up as an undrafted free agent, but he trimmed that number to five last season as the full-time starter at right tackle.

And he was able to do it despite the revolving door beside him at right guard. Geoff Hangartner, Jeff Byers and Garry Williams saw time at right guard after injuries to Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil and Hangartner forced some shakeups.

Kalil went down during Week 5 against Dallas with a broken foot and did not play the rest of the season. Kalil said his rehabilitation is on track, and he has participated fully in camp.


Depth could be an issue for the right side, though. Fourth-round pick Edmund Kugbila figured to be Hangartner’s understudy at right guard, but his knee and hamstring have prevented him from doing much the first week.

Either way, he needs to step up and keep improving to be successful in the NFL.
