53 • Jake Kradel, redshirt junior offensive lineman
Last Year: Kradel started eight games at right guard for the Panthers in 2020, missing two games due to COVID-19 protocols.
Stats: Kradel stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 305 pounds. He started seven games in 2019 in his first campaign, in addition to his eight in 2020.
Camp outlook: The Panthers must shuffle their offensive line this season after losing Jimmy Morrissey and Bryce Hargrove to the NFL. While Kradel is most experienced at right guard, he may change positions as the new line shakes out.
