    During the 2021 NFL Draft, the expectation was that the Carolina Panthers would draft a left tackle to help stabilize the offensive line. After Penei Sewell went to the Lions at No. 7, Carolina went with CB Jaycee Horn in round one. With several top tackles still available in the 2nd round, the Panthers traded back not once, but twice before taking WR Terrace Marshall Jr. It wasn't until the 3rd round when they finally landed on a tackle which ended up being BYU's Brady Christensen.

    The moment the pick was announced, you kind of had a feeling that the Panthers weren't going to keep Christensen at left tackle but there was always a chance. Personally, I feel like he has the perfect makeup of being a guard which is something the Panthers could need some help at as well.

    With the first two days of minicamp in the books, it appears that Christensen won't see many reps on that left side at tackle. Head coach Matt Rhule told reporters on Wednesday that they feel he is a better fit on the right side.

    "We think he's a right tackle. He certainly has the ability to be on the left but I think most of us would like to have more length over on the left side. So, he's playing right tackle but I think he can be a guy that can go inside and be an excellent guard. I've been really pleased with him and his ability to play tackle. When we drafted him we thought, hey, there's a guy that's going to find a place to play and I feel good about him out there. I wouldn't say he would never go to the left side but we put him there and feel really good about his growth there."
