A quick look at Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne

Height: 5-10.

Weight: 220.

College: Auburn.

NFL experience: Rookie.

The scoop: Artis-Payne won’t blow you away with his speed, but there’s a reason he led the SEC in rushing yards last year. He runs with an anger matched only on the roster by Jonathan Stewart, and the Panthers were pleased to get him in the fifth round of the NFL draft. They’re already working him out of the backfield as a pass catcher, and he immediately hit it off with Cam Newton because of their Auburn ties. Artis-Payne has the potential to finish the season as Carolina’s No. 2 running back.
