Three questions with Carolina Panthers OT Daryl Williams:

Q. You seem to be coming along really well at right tackle as a rookie. Why are you doing so well so early?

A. It’s the position I’ve always played so it’s the position I’m most comfortable at. Ever since eighth grade.

Q. You’ve said that you’re a right tackle and you’re comfortable there, but you’ve been working out a lot at left tackle. Why aren’t you as comfortable on the left side?

A. Well I’ve played right tackle my whole life. It’s like being right-handed and then switching to your left hand.

Q. But my handwriting would be terrible if I switched to my left hand. I talked to Ron Rivera earlier today and he said you aren’t doing bad at left tackle. I’d be doing poorly if I switched hands for writing. Wouldn’t you be bad?

A. Like Coach Rivera said I wouldn’t be bad at left tackle but it wouldn’t be as good as at right tackle.
