mes to fall to 6-6 Youth Sam Mills Jersey , and now they have injury issues which could make fixing things difficult.Via Joe Person of , Panthers tight end Greg Olsen said he suffered a ruptured plantar fascia in his right foot, and indicated it was a season-ending problem.Olsen missed three weeks earlier this year after suffering a Jones fracture in his right foot, the same one that cost him nine games last year. Olsen said the latest injury was a result of compensating for earlier problems Stitched Sam Mills Jersey , and that it was time to fix it.That’s bad enough, but the worse news could be that Cam Newton‘s right shoulder continues to be an issue.He had surgery in March 2017 and hasn’t seemed right all year, unable to throw deep as effectively as in the past. They’ve game-planned away from that and he’s played with some degree of efficiency, but Sunday his protection wasn’t good (four sacks) and neither was he (four interceptions).Panthers coach Ron Rivera acknowledged that the shoulder was a problem for Newton Youth Greg Olsen Jersey , whose new throwing routine (very little during midweek practices) has been described as “the new normal.”For the second time this season, the Panthers put backup Taylor Heinicke in to throw a Hail Mary, this time from their own 49-yard line. It’s hardly what they need to hear during a losing streak, with a new owner in David Tepper who may or may not be patient with his big-ticket investment. The Carolina Panthers need an offensive tackle. They haven’t had a reliable anchor on either end of the line since Jordan Gross retired. Daryl Williams played well on the right side two years ago and Taylor Moton bettered that last season Blue Devin Funchess Jersey , but Williams is a free agent and it’s yet to be determined if Moton can handle the left side. Matt Kalil is currently in line to start next season at left tackle, and we know how that goes. The Panthers will probably look to address the position in the draft. If they’re serious about finding a tackle of the future, they’ll have to nab one early. I looked at players selected at or after the Panthers picks in each round in the ten drafts between 2008 and 2017 (I left last season’s rookies out of it). I only looked at the first three rounds of the draft because rounds four through seven tend to be a crap shoot regardless of position. Below is a look at how offensive tackles have panned out compared to the positional average in the first three rounds of the last ten drafts. Note that AV/Year is Pro Football Reference’s Approximate Value divided by the amount of years since the player was drafted. Offensive tackles tend to fare better over the course of their careers than other positions selected in the first and second rounds. Nearly half of the first round tackles taken at or after the 16th pick in the last ten drafts have started at least 75% of their team’s games, compared to just 30% for other positions. Over half of those tackles have been primary starters for three quarters of their career. Getting a starting caliber offensive tackle in the first round is a pretty sure bet. Guys like Duane Brown Devin Funchess Jersey 2019 , Anthony Castonzo, and Taylor Decker have gone in this range. The second round also has an above average hit rate, but it falls off a cliff in the third round. Joe Barksdale is the only player listed as an offensive tackle to start at least half his team’s games after being selected in the back half of the third round. There are several tackles projected to go in the middle of the first round. Barring an unforeseen fall by a blue chip player, an offensive tackle will likely be the safest pick for the Panthers at No. 16.
