A quick look at Panthers G Trai Turner:

Height: 6-3.

Weight: 320.

College: Louisiana State.

NFL experience: Second year.

The scoop: This second-year player takes pride in keeping Cam Newton clean, which he did for most of his 13 apperances last year, including nine starts at right guard. Turner was one of the best rookie guards in the NFL last season despite uncertainty and poor play at times at right tackle. He’s an equally good run blocker as he is pass blocker, and he may prove to be a steal with a third-round pick in last year’s draft. He’ll enter the season as the starting right guard on this line.
