Panthers coach Ron Rivera has praised Clausens work during the teams Tuesday practice and added that No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton has got to show more consistency. Carolina is still working on Newton’s throwing mechanics which was one of the concerns that NFL scouts had about him coming out of college.
It’s worth noting that the first depth charts show things as they stand before any preseason games have been played so changes are likely. It’s just interesting that Clausen is having a showing so far following his terrible rookie season in 2010.
