SPARTANBURG, SC – The Carolina Panthers will enter camp with all their picks signed and ready to go.…
Short Yardage Shelton
"Eric is a big, strong physical back," Head Coach John Fox said. "That is why we drafted him. He's shown that thus far in our camp. He's a rookie who is learning our system. I like the way he is progressing."
Shelton is often lining up with the first team offense when they practice their goal line offense, and he's been having good success. After all, Shelton does have an impressive resume; he scored 20 touchdowns last season alone for the Louisville Cardinals, and that was with him splitting time with 2 other backs. In a short yardage scrimmage yesterday, Shelton broke through a few times against the first team defense.
"I thought it was good," Fox said of Shelton's performance in the drills. "We've still got a lot of work to do, but they competed hard. That is the number one thing I look at, but I was pleased with what I saw."
If Shelton proves he can produce when it counts, Davis might not have a job to come back to.
