The Carolina Panthers are in a pickle and now they will be forced to start the former 5th pick of the Canadian Football Draft, David Foucault. The 6-foot-8, 305-pound Foucault has impressed coaches with his frame and work ethic, but he’s obviously raw. Naturally, he was a hockey player growing up, who didn’t take up football until he was a teenager.
“This is the situation we’re in,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said, via Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review. “It’s not like we said, ‘Hey, you know what? When we get to Week Nine, why don’t we put the kid out there at left tackle?’”
This will be Foucault’s first start since last year’s Coupe Dunsmore, when his Université de Montréal Carabins lost to Quebec’s Collège Laval last November.
