The competition hasn't generated much buzz, but the Panthers will hold a battle for the starting right guard job in training camp. Mackenzy Bernadeau, Duke Robinson and Geoff Schwartz are the top contenders for the spot, and each took reps with the first-team offense during offseason practices. Bernadeau started seven games at guard last season, and that experience may give him a slight edge in the competition. Schwartz started three games at right tackle last season, and, while he's taken reps at guard, it's likely he'll back up at tackle again. We hear Robinson, who is heading into his second season, is physically more gifted than his fellow competitors. He's powerful and fits well in Carolina's bulky offensive line. The main concerns with Robinson, we're told, are his awareness and understanding of the offense. Regardless of who wins the battle, the Panthers feel much better about their depth on the offensive line than they did heading into last season.
