Draft Reaction: Carolina selects G Amini Silatolu

I love watching those highlights of Amili Silatolu just rolling people in college.

He played in a scheme at Midwestern State where they asked him to protect the passer from the left tackle position, and lead up the hole in the running game.  That makes him a guard in the pros.  He becomes the third guard taken in the 2012 NFL Draft.

The question the Panthers will have to answer is whether Silatolu can handle the speed of the NFL game from day one, or whether they’ll have to make a trade for an interior player.  But with Ryan Kalil and Silatolu together on the inside, the interior offensive line should be a strength of the team for the Panthers.  It’s scary to consider what they can do with Cam Newton and that running game behind those guys.
