NFL experience: First year.
The scoop: A player at Utah who started in each of his 48 games, Blechen had 264 tackles and nine picks in his career. The Panthers signed him last season and added him to the practice squad after he missed the final cuts. Carolina brought him back for his football instincts and awareness on the field. Blechen has a tough path to the 53-man roster. In front of him are A.J. Klein, David Mayo and Ben Jacobs. He’ll have to separate himself both on the defensive side and in special teams.
