The Carolina Panthers are shocking the NFL landscape with how they’ve become a fascinating team.
While the fascination with them isn’t over their chances to win games, it’s over their quarterback situation.
Since adding Baker Mayfield into the mix, the team has three quarterbacks fighting for the top spot.
Anyone not familiar with the Panthers might not think Matt Corral is part of the QB competition.
However, he’s made it known he’s inserting himself into that fight.
Corral Brings A Desire To Carolina That Fascinates Fans
While the rookie quarterback was a third-round pick, he’s acting like a first-rounder.
His desire to be the starting quarterback in Carolina has turned heads.
However, he knows how it’s tough to reach the top when you get limited reps behind Mayfield and Sam Darnold.

With him putting Carolina’s other QBs on notice, he’s showing no fear coming in as a rookie with the team.
It’s his desire and fearlessness that’s so refreshing with the Panthers.
But it’s also something that every NFL fan can appreciate and enjoy when watching how he’s developing.
However, Corral isn’t the only player that’s having people looking at the Panthers for 2022.
People Have Been Seeing How Mayfield Does With Robbie Anderson
Everyone was thinking Robbie Anderson and Mayfield had some beef before the trade brought the QB to Carolina.
However, Anderson has told the press his comments in the past about Mayfield were in defense of Darnold.
With everyone fascinated with how the pair will work out, the two would shock people during practice.

The two players are showing in practice they are working together, putting to rest any rumors saying otherwise.
While Mayfield is showing some great plays with Anderson during practice, he’s also showing his typical ability to turn the ball over.
These things are leading some to believe Mayfield will do no better in Carolina than he did in Cleveland.
Mayfield’s Practice Sessions Show A Side Many Saw From Him In Cleveland
Baker brings both the good and bad with him to Carolina from his days in Cleveland.
While first practice session would see him throw some bad passes and interceptions, things are now changing for him.

However, even with those great passes he’s throwing, he’s still throwing interceptions.
While some will say not to worry because it’s practice, it could carry over into the regular season.
But it doesn’t look like Mayfield is too worried over the interceptions he’s thrown in practice.
He’s got his focus on making improvements, something Browns fans wish he did last season before losing him.
However, the main thing everyone wants to see is if he’ll show the immature side people in Cleveland say he has.
As for now, we aren’t seeing too much of that side of Mayfield.
This is great for Panthers fans that might be worried over how he adjusts with the team.
But with practice ending soon, and preseason nearly here, he’ll need to make improvements in other areas.
Waiting to see if he can improve is what fascinates NFL fans with the Panthers this season.
