Brian Burns talking a lot about becoming a morning person, which isn’t normal for him.

Said Shaq Thompson encouraged him to “step into a leader role.”

Brian Burns says Ekwonu has some things to work on, but has been impressed so far with his intensity.

Imagine that’s going to go up a notch when they put pads on Monday.

Ekwonu has already had to sing in a team meeting, went with Boyz II Men’s “So Hard to Say Goodbye.”

Ikem Ekwonu doesn’t mind competing for the LT job with Brady Christensen, saying it will “push me to be the best player I can be.”

Donte Jackson on new secondary coach Steve Wilks: “He’s a true dog.”

Rhule: “We’re definitely better on the offensive line.”

That’s the development of existing guys and the newcomers. But it’s a noticeable difference.

They’re still working through the plan for QB reps, may start mixing them in rather than one guy taking all of his with the ones or twos.

Rhule said they’ll likely look at corners, with Jaycee Horn on PUP and Rashaan Melvin retired. They’ve got a roster spot.

Biggest offensive play of camp so far: Baker Mayfield rolls left, finds DJ Moore, who makes a nice adjustment to grab the ball about 40 yards downfield. Moore has had a very nice day.

— Bill Voth (@PanthersBill) July 28, 2022

Practicing with DJ Moore gives any quarterback a chance to look better.

Mayfield with a strike to DJ Moore. He throws fastballs.

Another one, and Moore dunks (ok maybe finger-rolls) over the crossbar.

Couple of dropped INTs so far in 7-on-7s. Donte Jackson could’ve had one off Baker Mayfield and Julian Stanford off Sam Darnold.

— Bill Voth (@PanthersBill) July 28, 2022

Baker Mayfield threw two near-INTs Donte Jackson’s way in 7-on-7. Could really tell Jackson wanted them — he hit his hands against his helmet after the second grazed his hands.

— Augusta Stone (@augustalstone) July 28, 2022

Donte Jackson drops a pick in 7-on-7 (Mayfield) and you can tell he really wanted it.

Then one goes off LB Julian Stanford’s hands (Darnold).

Mayfield taking first QB snaps today #asexpected

Working with ones should help, but working against ones also a challenge.

— Darin Gantt (@daringantt) July 28, 2022

Everyone accounted for and dressed for practice other than the two guys on PUP — though those are two pretty important guys, Shaq Thompson and Jaycee Horn.

QB Walk-On Notables

• Rookie Matt Corral is first QB on the field, again, though he was beat for first overall by RB Spencer Brown

• Sam Darnold was next up, received some cheers from fans here

• Baker Mayfield walked out alongside RB D’Onta Foreman
