Despite playing just 63 offensive snaps in his rookie season, sophomore offensive lineman Taylor Moton is in position to be a major factor for the Carolina Panthers moving forward. Andrew Norwell, a guard who played every offensive snap for Carolina last year, signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason, opening up a competition for a starting guard slot.
Moton and Amini Silatolu, who played 23 percent of the Panthers' offensive snaps last year, should be the two top candidates for the opening. Long-term, Moton could push Matt Kalil out of the left tackle slot. Kalil struggled in his first year with Carolina after signing a $55.5 million deal. According to Spotrac, Kalil's dead cap will be higher than his cap hit until 2020, meaning the Panthers have their hands tied until then.
In two years, maybe after seeing some playing time at guard, Moton could kick out to tackle to replace Kalil. We've seen the college tackle to starting guard to starting tackle plan in action before in the NFL. Look for Moton to follow a La'el Collins-like path to offensive tackle.
