For the No. 16 overall pick, the Carolina Panthers picked edge rusher Brian Burns out of Florida State. I think this was the best choice Marty Hurney could’ve made. While protecting franchise quarterback Cam Newton is still a top priority, the pass rush was the biggest blemish in 2018 (and has been for several seasons). In a class full of promising edge rushers, Burns was one that stood out. Experts may knock on his thin frame Taylor Moton Jersey , but he proved he could add the pounds by weighing in at 249 lbs. for the NFL Combine (he reportedly played at 235 during the 2018 season). He has also since put on more weight leading up to the draft. Burns not only has speed and flexibility, but he’s explosive and is quick to get off the jump. Ron Rivera has hinted at a 3-4 defensive scheme for next season. Even better for Rivera is that Burns is capable at playing outside linebacker and end. His versatility and hand placement makes him ideal for the transition. While Burns isn’t not perfect with his hand usage and pass-rush moves, these are things that can easily be coached. Overall, I think the Panthers got a major steal when Burns fell in the draft. Cam Newton confirmed his Lisfranc injury in a vlog Friday afternoon, revealing he sprained his mid-left foot in the third preseason game. “It happened — the unthinkable, so to speak Wes Horton Color Rush Jersey ,” Newton said in his post, via Brendan Marks of the . “Something else got hurt.”The Panthers quarterback called the injury “mild,” but said he does not know how long he will remain out. Newton missed last week’s victory over the Cardinals as backup Kyle Allen starred, and Newton won’t play this week against the Texans.Newton tried to play through the injury, knowing he wasn’t 100 percent. He said he could not even jog during pregame warmups before the season opener.“This is where I got in my own way,” said Newton Stephen Curry Jersey , who had offseason shoulder surgery. “Because I thought automatically, I’ve got to play Week One. I can’t let my fans down.”It took a failed fourth-and-1 play from the Tampa Bay 2-yard line in Week Two, when Newton couldn’t push off and Christian McCaffrey had to take a direct snap, for Newton to realize he couldn’t do what he wanted to do. That’s when Newton said he told coach Ron Rivera and General Manager Marty Hurney he needed time to heal.“I needed to see that me at 80 percent was not OK,” Newton said. “I realize it’s OK to take time.“I’ve just got to get right.”Newton completed 56.2 of his passes for 572 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in the first two games. He didn’t look like himself, but Shaq Thompson Color Rush Jersey , because of his shoulder injury, he didn’t look like himself much of last season either.When healthy, Newton expects to return to form.“If I’m able to get the time off for me to heal and get back to 100 percent,” Newton said, “then I have no doubt in my mind everything that we want as a team can still be accomplished.”
