  • Panthers' Bravvion Roy: To get first start of NFL career

    Roy will start in place of the injured Zach Kerr (toe) during Thursday night's matchup against the Falcons. The rookie from Baylor has earned his first NFL start, and he will do so playing for his former college coach, Matt Rhule. Despite questions regarding a lack of overall experience, Carolina's scoring defense has proven surprisingly steady, ranking 13th in the league heading into Week 8. The rush defense, in particular, has been spotty, however, allowing the fifth-most rushing yards (751) and the second-highest total of rushing touchdowns to opposing backs.

    The Panthers selected Roy in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 184th overall. Coach Matt Rhule and defensive coordinator Phil Snow bring along their trusty nose tackle from Baylor, where Roy (6-foot-1, 332 pounds) anchored a strong Baylor run defense. With 61 tackles and 13 tackles for loss in 2019, Roy has some disruptive abilities, too. This looks like a nice pick for the Panthers.
