The Panthers need to see more from Kevon Seymour

07 December 2018 05:22
If the TV show Weakest Link was still on the air then Kevon Seymour would be one of next week’s contestants. The Buffalo Bills successfully targeted Carolina’s third-year corner back early and often in the Panthers first preseason game. This is concerning. Seymour is currently listed as a starter on the Panthers depth chart and the team will likely be heavily relying on him this season. Consider the quality of quarterbacks the Panthers will be facing this year: It includes six Super Bowl-winners (Eli Manning Ryan Kalil Jersey , Carson Wentz/Nick Foles, Joe Flacco, Ben Roethlisberger, Russell Wilson, and Drew Brees twice.), 2016 NFL MVP Matt Ryan (twice), 2016 Rookie of the Year Dak Prescott, and Matthew Stafford who trails only Drew Brees in passing yards since 2011. With those caliber of quarterbacks squaring off against the Panthers secondary Authentic Graham Gano Jersey , the play of Kevon Seymour and Carolina’s corners has the potential to derail the entire season. Based on what we saw from Kevon against Buffalo, we are justified in being concerned. On the Bills first play from scrimmage, Seymour broke too early on a pass and was flagged for a 12-yard pass interference. On Buffalo’s second play Nathan Peterman hit Andre Holmes on a quick comeback route where Seymour was giving Holmes a large cushion. Holmes caught the ball five yards past the line of scrimmage, eluded Seymour’s arm tackle, and picked up 10 yards on the play. Buffalo’s third play was another comeback against another generous Seymour cushion, this time to Kelvin Benjamin for an 11-yard gain. Three plays from scrimmage, 33 yards, all against Kevon Seymour. Later in the drive the Bills faced 2nd-and-7 from the Carolina 30. Rod Streater was split wide left with Seymour in press coverage. Streater ran a streak and Seymour covered him fairly well Youth James Bradberry Jersey , but Streater pushed off before hauling in a touchdown. Offensive pass interference was rightfully called on the play to negate the score, but once again the Bills targeted Seymour. Then two plays later, on 3rd-and-4 from the Carolina 28, Buffalo split Kelvin Bejnamin wide left against Seymour who was in press coverage. Seymour tried to jam KB, stumbled, and let the beefy receiver eat his lunch for a 28-yard score. While the first series was rough, the worst play came in the fourth quarter. With Buffalo facing a 3rd-and-22, Seymour understandably gave a huge cushion to rookie receiver Robert Foster. Foster ran a simple streak and somehow managed to get two steps behind Seymour. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen showed off his huge arm by launching a bomb to Foster. Fortunately for the Panthers the pass was overthrown by about two feet. If Allen would have just taken a tiny bit off the throw it would have been a 62-yard touchdown with Foster leaving Seymour in the dust. How a starting corner gets beat on a streak on 3rd-and-22 is beyond me. While this is only the first preseason game , it definitely wasn’t reassuring. With Ross Cockrell on injured reserve and rookie Donte Jackson learning on the fly, Carolina needs Kevon Seymour to take a huge leap forward this year. That didn’t happen against the Bills. If a defense is only as strong as its weakest link then the Panthers secondary might be in serious trouble. Ed.
