If there were any questions http://www.rd-corp.com/phil-rizzuto-jersey-c-1_17.html about whether Carolina’s two featured second-year cornerbacks were ready to come into the 2017 season, James Bradberry and Daryl Worley shut them down during minicamp.
Bradberry and Worley more than held their own against the team’s top receivers throughout minicamp. Bradberry was especially heralded as the main playmaker in the unit despite the use of one arm after he suffered a minor fracture in his left wrist and had to wear a cast.
After a wobbly rookie campaign that showed flashes of promise near the end, Carolina will lean heavily on the two young cornerbacks to continue their progression.
General manager Dave Gettleman also took steps to ensure the fortification of the cornerbacks unit after the secondary was largely picked http://www.texansprosale.com/tom-savage-jersey-c-1_40.html apart in 2016 (Carolina finished the season No. 29 out of 32 teams in passing defense, with 4,291 yards and 27 touchdowns allowed). The Panthers brought back veteran Captain Munnerlyn to be their go-to slot presence in their often-used nickel defense, and drafted a rookie version of Munnerlyn in Miami’s Corn Elder in the fifth round – a steal, considering Elder’s value and versatility.
Despite missing a large portion of organized team activities because of a minor injury, Elder showed up strong in minicamp and at times ran with the first-team defense as an outside corner. Expect Elder to rotate in with Munnerlyn at the nickel while also providing depth as a backup to Worley.
Elder was also a prolific returner during his J.J. Jansen Youth Jersey junior year of college and saw a few repetitions in that position when Carolina worked through special teams drills in minicamp.
