Along with 35 days left until the Panthers season opener, that means it is time to evaluation Corion Ballard, and talk about exactly what he might do for the Carolina Panthers in 2019.
Corion Ballard Bio
Weight: 200 lbs
Age: twenty-one years
Experience: First year
Corrion Ballard arrives in Carolina after receiving a phone call from Marty Hurney shortly after the end of the 2019 NFL Draft, when Hurney noticed that he had forgotten to draft any kind of safety help and desperately required some. Hurney then dug serious into his scouting reports plus found the young Ballard looking forward to the picking. Ballard possesses a perfect frame for playing safety within the NFL but is highly inexperienced plus unproven. One interesting link that will stand out for Ballard, is that such as Cam Newton, he started his university football career at Blinn University before making his way onto an even more established program.
At this point in coaching camp, if you are competing for a place at safety you at least possess some chance of making the roster. Details are very muddy outside of Eric Reid, Rashaan Gaulden, and the ever-existing Colin Jones, making it anybody's speculated who might end up stealing an additional roster spot. I personally believe that nothing of the current contenders will grab this, and the Panthers might reach out to somebody who hits the waiver wire right after cuts are made, or potentially an experienced that is still sitting on their sofa just looking to skip out on getaway time like Eric Berry.
