Jeremy Cash was surprisingly undrafted after a stellar career at Duke. The former Blue Devil starred at Duke, breaking numerous records throughout his career. He won ACC Defensive Player of the Year and the Jim Tatum Award in is final season. He suffered a wrist injury late in his senior year and was widely considered undersized and too small to play in the NFL.
The former Blue Devil was quickly signed as a rookie free agent by the Carolina Panthers, who added him with the hopes of transforming the NCAA safety into an NFL linebacker. Cash performed well in his rookie season, impressing his coaches and teammates with his hard work ethic. He competed mostly on special teams and was ranked among the top special teams performers during the regular season last year.
Cash is continuing to improve and will look to earn more playing time with the Panthers this season. He’s continuing to gain weight and become stronger in the NFL which will help him be able to see time on the field. Below is the official update on Cash from the Carolina Panthers after their ninth day of OTAs, and you can also see the effects of the former Blue Devils’ transformation here, here, and here.
"“A year ago, converted safety Jeremy Cash appeared small for a linebacker. But the 6-foot Cash, who now weighs in at 230 after adding about 15 pounds this offseason, looks much more like a linebacker.”"
Next for Jeremy Cash is the team’s minicamp to prepare for the preseason exhibitions and upcoming regular season. We’re looking forward to seeing how much Cash has improved and hopefully the former Blue Devil will be able to see more time on the field this year.
