The Carolina Panthers suffered a bad loss at the hands of the Washington Redskins this past weekend, as they were on the losing end of a 23-17 score. The Redskins jumped out to a 14-0 first quarter lead against Cam Newton and company, and the Panthers never recovered, as they saw their record move to 3-2 on the season.
For Carolina, they are right in the mix when it comes to the NFC South, which suddenly looks like a division that is going to be up for grabs this season. The Falcons have gotten out of the gate slowly, and the Buccaneers have been down since moving to 2-0 thanks to Fitz Magic, so there is no reason why Newton cannot lead this team to a division title this season.
When it comes time for the Panthers to draft in the first round next April, they will likely look to add some talent to their offensive line. One player who could add serious depth at the offensive tackle position is Greg Little from Ole Miss, who has the size and strength to stay on the left side at the next level.
Little is a guy who can play on either side of the line, and the Panthers are still seeing Newton take too many shots during the game. They need to keep him upright if they are going to make it back to a Super Bowl during his career, and in Little, they would be adding one nasty cat to their offensive line group for at least the next five years.
