Player Draft Profile

This is the Panthers annual ‘Who?’ pick, so I’m still looking for more info. We know he was listed as a DE but also played TE. The Panthers though are calling him a FB. Very interesting.

How the Player Fits in Carolina

I have no idea other than the obvious lead blocker role in the running game. He’s a vicious blocker who always finishes his blocks. He can catch too though he’s not the fastest guy.
