Greg Little: I’m here to earn Panthers left tackle job


The Panthers’ need for offensive line help in the draft was no secret and that made it no surprise that they traded up for the chance to select Ole Miss tackle Greg Little in the second round last month.

Panthers General Manager Marty Hurney said after the draft that the team prefers to have 2017 second-round pick Taylor Moten at right tackle. Daryl Williams will factor into the mix somewhere as long as his knee is sound and has played right tackle, but could slide inside to guard if Moten’s the team’s choice.

In any event, the path to a starting job at left tackle could be wide open for Little.

“They have high expectations of me and I’ve had high expectations since high school coming out and being a top tackle,” Little said, via the team’s website. “Just work. I’m not looking for any handouts. I’m here to earn it.”

If Little proves up to the task, it could be the start of a long run on the left side in Carolina.

  1. Not a lot to beat out. Moton did okay at LT last year but otherwise there is no one on the roster that is even close to a LT starter.

  2. Greg Little is as good a natural left tackle as anyone. He’s one guy who can literally be as good as he wants to be. He can earn the starting job just by showing up. However, he’ll have to work hard to become a great NFL player. It’s all up to him. How great does he want to be? Is he there for a paycheck or a super bowl ring? Those questions can’t be answered verbally.

  3. The last time the Panthers had a decent LT they won 15 and went to the SB.

    Cue the haters/trolls talking about a meaningless play in a game that was over. If you have watched Cam play the past 8 years you know that he is not afraid of contact.

  4. Just a 5 dollar cab ride guy. If he gets his hands on you it’s usually over but the dude can barely move in pass pro. In the run department he’s a hot mess. Not going to help there at all.

  5. Us Browns fans hear the name Greg Little and we think of a disappointing WR that we drafted….
