NORWELL NAMED TO ALL-UNDER-25 TEAM: Panthers guard Andrew Norwell is among the players included on Eliot Harrison's All-Under-25 Team on NFL.com. A total of 26 players make up the list, which Harrison bills as the next generation of NFL stars. Harrison notes that a secret to the Panthers' 2015 success was stronger play along the offensive line, and Norwell was a big part of that improvement.
