One of TN’s contributors — oline0175 — was gracious enough to answer my questions.1. What are Burns’ strengths and weaknesses, and how do you think he could help the Panthers’ defense in 2019?The first thing to jump out about Burns is his elite first step. Burns uses a long, quick first-step to get angles on an offensive tackle and set up a rush. Once Burns is able to get an angle, he uses his incredible athleticism to either blow by or spin around a blocker. However, he’s struggled when his initial explosiveness doesn’t give him an immediate advantage. Once an offensive tackle gets his hands on Burns, he was often neutralized at the collegiate levels. And the ACC is a far cry from the NFL. But Burns is also athletic enough to drop in coverage if asked, so if he can develop some more moves, the upside is there for Burns to be a leading sack-artist for the Panthers, and a limited liability in coverage.But Burns’ weight will always be an issue at the NFL level, and he will have to work to keep it up. When run at, Burns lacks the bulk to set an edge and is moved by more powerful offensive linemen. Early in Burns’ career, he was known to take plays off but did grow out of that in his last season at Florida State. He had to shake off a culture at FSU that saw several Seminoles checking out; to his credit, Burns responded admirably when addressed by these concerns.Burns should make a day-one impact for the Panthers’ defense. We would expect him to play during most passing situations, but he could develop into an every-down end for the Panthers as the season goes on. Double-digit sacks in his rookie campaign would be a surprise, but not a shock. Burns will bring a pass rush to a team that finished with just 35 total sacks last season. To that end, the Panthers definitely drafted a high-ceiling player at a position of need. 2. Do you think Burns will fit better as a traditional 4-3 defensive end or as a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL? Why?Burns can play in either defensive setup at the next level. However, he’s at his best when he is getting up the field and rushing the passer Ian Thomas Jersey , so the 4-3 is preferred. But he will be asked to have more run responsibility in the 4-3 defense, which is a drawback. Committing to Burns means you are going to commit to his skill set, and that means widening him out and letting him get up the field. If Burns is dropping into coverage, he is not using his greatest tool, and that is his elite quickness up the field. Carolina has utilized wide-9 looks in the past and should use them again with Burns.Seminole Everette Brown, who played with the Panthers, is now on staff with Carolina as a defensive assistant, and in a recent interview with our friends Tom Block and Keith Jones of Front Row ’Noles, he said that Burns should be playing with a hand on the ground.3. The Panthers drafted Burns at No. 16 overall. Do you think they got a good value there, or did they overdraft him?This spot seemed like a good get for Burns in the draft. He was ranked in the 20s by most draft experts, but getting an elite pass-rusher in the mid-teens is great value. Pass-rushers are a hot commodity in the NFL, and Burns was a highly coveted prospect. There may be concern about Burns’ ability to be a three-down player, but the impact he will make as a pass-rusher could quiet those concerns. With the way the board fell, getting Burns at 16 was perfect for the Panthers. Carolina got some help from foolish picks by teams in front of them, and Burns could turn out to be a steal at 16 if he can keep his weight and explosiveness up.4. Which parts of his game do you think will best translate to the NFL? Which parts will he need to work on the most?Burns’ first step will play at any level. He’s a player who has the ability to get a first-step advantage on most offensive tackles in the league. Burns is a top-edge prospect because of his first step/athleticism, and those will not be going away anytime soon. His length will also allow him to bat down a lot of balls at the next level.The reason that Burns was not a top-10 pick is his weight. If Burns were able to play at 270, he would have been a top-5 pick. Burns is going to need to continue to get stronger, gain weight Curtis Samuel Color Rush Jersey , and show he can hold up against the run. If he cannot do these things, he will struggle to stay on the field.5. If you could compare Burns to a current NFL player, who would you choose and why would you make that choice?The player comparison mentioned most is Leonard Floyd of the Chicago Bears. Floyd and Burns share many of the same physical/athletic traits. This does appear to be an accurate player comparison for Burns as he enters the NFL. The two players were highly regarded, athletic pass-rushers coming out of college, as Floyd drew similar concerns about his ability to hold up against the run. Floyd has made an impact during his time in Chicago, though he’s not been the pass-rusher the Bears had hoped for. Time will tell if Burns can be the top-notch pass-rusher that Carolina drafted him to be.What do you think, Panthers fans? Are you excited about the pick? Why or why not?

What’s next?ESTLast January seems like so long ago, but at the time we were lamenting the struggles of the Panthers offense, specifically at wide receiver. Kaelin Clay and Devin Funchess both missed opportunities for big time touchdown catches against the Saints in a hard fought playoff match, and it became clear that the Panthers simply cannot depend on Cam Newton to carry this offense kicking and screaming to a Super Bowl victory. They needed weapons. They needed speed. They needed something to take some of the burden off of Cam. And while 2018 wasn’t considered a successful season overall, this offense got a shot in the arm athletically.Another first round pick, another weapon in the arsenalOne year following the heavy investment of Christian McCaffery being drafted in the first and Curtis Samuel being drafted in the second, the Panthers essentially tripled down by taking D.J. Moore with their first pick in 2018. The kid could catch, he could run like a running back, and he was a motivated individual getting into the NFL. There were questions about his route running ability and questions about inflated production in college as the de-facto No. 1 weapon at Maryland. Well, the kid ended up being as advertised, catching 55 passes for 788 yards and 2 touchdowns despite an offense that fell off a cliff halfway through the season. Moore usurped Devin Funchess as the No. 1 receiver eventually Daeshon Hall Jersey , and heads into the 2019 season with plenty of momentum and a ton of quality snaps under his belt.I wasn’t surprised with Moore and his run after the catch ability, that was his selling point coming out of college. He legitimately reminds me of Steve Smith when he’s got the ball in his hands. However, he showed flashes of being more than a shadow of a Panthers' legend. He's the kind of player who can last in the NFL. He showed that in this play.Moore used his hips to beat the breaks off of Darius Slay on this play, a cornerback regarded as one of the better veterans in the NFL. Moore was able to use his inside release to break outside, leaving Slay turned around and unable to get close to the football on this throw.This is the kind of play a legitimate starting wide receiver makes in the NFL. There are plenty of players with run after the catch ability, but these kind of plays differentiate the Cordarrelle Pattersons from the D.J. Moores.A bump in the road becomes a shot of adrenalineCurtis Samuel had a rough start to his NFL career, battling injury and seeing some success in limited action during the 2017 season. He appeared primed for a nice rebound to start the 2018 season, but surgery for a “minor” heart condition held him out for a few weeks. Once he got into full swing with this offense, he became a fire cracker. Samuel caught 39 passes for 494 yards and five touchdowns, along with 8 rushes for 84 yards and two touchdowns. Moore scored roughly once every nine touches, and for awhile there during the season he scored once every four touches. This kid is a play-maker, somebody who can be a threat as a rusher, deep receiver, and even in short yardage goal-to-go situations.Samuel won as a runner on this play, in a way very reminiscent of Ted Ginn in the 2015 playoffs. But he could potentially be even better very early in his career.I love plays like this from guys like Samuel, who many might write off as a gadget type player. Samuel can win in one on one, goal to go situations, and he created separation using his hands Trai Turner Color Rush Jersey , and feet. Samuel is becoming very technically refined, and as a compliment to Moore and McCaffrey he could see a ton of opportunities to make even more plays in 2019.The mercenariesIt wouldn’t be a Carolina Panthers offense without some new veteran receivers to fill in the gaps. The Panthers traded for Torrey Smith, shipping off Daryl Worley straight up. Smith only caught 17 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns, but he was crucial at times for the Panthers. His role was slowly phased out as Samuel and Moore began to take more snaps following Smith’s injury.The one diamond in the rough, and arguably the best free agent signing of the 2018 offseason was Jarius Wright. Cam Newton hasn’t had a consistent chain mover since Jerricho Cotchery, and Wright delivered as a security blanket. He came in as a cheap option, and turned out to be a high yielding investment as a player Newton could depend on, especially after Greg Olsen went down with injuries. Newton should throw a lot more passes his way now that his shoulder should be healthy going into the 2019 season, and Wright will allow Moore and Samuel to fly around as big play threats against defenses.What’s next?Devin Funchess slowly saw his snaps phased out over the season after he had issues with drops and not being on the same page as Cam. Funchess will likely be allowed to walk in free agency, which is unfortunate as Newton has produced well with him in the past. But the prevailing theme over the last two seasons has been to introduce more speed to the offense, and Funchess does not fit that bill. Funchess provided value as a physical mismatch and a chain mover, but his issues with dropping passes made him a non factor as the season went on.Jarius Wright will step in as a guy who can move the chains, but the Panthers offense definitely needs a red zone threat. Both Moore and Samuel showed they can break ankles and get open, but they do not present the same physical mismatch that Funchess does. Maybe the guy who replaces that is already here (a healthy Greg Olsen or possibly Ian Thomas?), or maybe they are waiting in the draft. Regardless, of all the needs the Panthers have, this may be the first time they can walk into the season knowing they have some fire power at wide receiver.
