After WR Armanti Edwards' very disappointing rookie season, the Panthers' decision to trade their 2011 second-round pick — which ended up being the 33rd overall choice — to be in position to take him in the third round last year has been second-guessed, even by former head coach John Fox. Fox had little use for Edwards, playing him in only three games, but we hear Fox's successor, Ron Rivera, has a much more optimistic outlook on Edwards' future. Carolina hired former NFL WR Ricky Proehl as an offensive consultant this offseason and he's expected to work closely with Edwards and try to help him become a weapon in the slot. Edwards had a lot to digest last season, transitioning from playing quarterback at Appalachian State, and Carolina might try to simplify things for him this year after he was overwhelmed by trying to learn all three receiver positions last year, we're told. He might not get much time to work with Proehl and the rest of the staff, however, with the lockout lingering.
