S Sam Franklin got alot of 1st team reps alongside S Jeremy Chinn. LB Frankie Luvu had four QB pressures. LB Julian Stanford two run stops and two pass deflections. Overall another strong day for the Panthers offensive players. QB Sam Darnold displayed very good scrambling ability by picking up two 1st downs with his legs. The focus on situational football was evident today and refreshing to see.
