  Panthers | Mike Davis may be top backup in Carolina    Thu Jul 23, 10:33 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Mike Davis 'might have the edge' over Reggie Bonnafon and Jordan Scarlett as the direct backup for Christian McCaffrey, according to ESPN's David Newton.

Footballguys view: The Panthers will replace McCaffrey with some sort of committee if the starter goes down, so there's not a clear handcuff here. Davis is the most accomplished NFL back, Bonnafon might be the most dynamic, while Scarlett is the best downhill runner.

  Panthers | Jordan Scarlett best backup option?    Mon Jul 15, 02:55 AM

Carolina Panthers RB Jordan Scarlett slipped to the fifth round in the 2019 NFL Draft due to character concerns from his time at the University of Florida. However, beat writer Brendan Marks suggest Scarlett might be the most talented tailback to back up starting RB Christian McCaffrey.

Footballguys view: Scarlett is a hard-charging back at 5'11" 208 pounds. He's incredibly strong and is not afraid of contact. Scarlett does a good job of making defenders miss in tight quarters and he does have good footwork to help him change direction. He is not a receiving option whatsoever and had some of the worst hands of any running back in this draft class.

  Panthers | Carolina to give Christian McCaffrey help?    Mon Jul 15, 02:48 AM

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey might see a little more help in the backfield, as head coach Ron Rivera searches for a secondary runner. '(McCaffrey) him touching the ball was no concern,' Rivera said. 'It was just the extra plays. So we have to look at that and find a way to take that load from him.'

Footballguys view: McCaffrey should touch the ball as much as possible, but a breather from time-to-time would be nice. The team re-signed RBs Cameron Artis-Payne and Elijah Hood, they drafted RB Jordan Scarlett, signed Elijah Holyfield as an undrafted free agent and have RB Reggie Bonnafon in the mix as well. We'll watch this backup running back situation shake out in training camp.
