Christian McCaffrey made his NFL debut, and he flashed some of the skills that prompted the Panthers to take the former Stanford star No. 9 overall.
The rookie running back rushed for 33 yards on 7 carries in the first half of Carolina’s first preseason game against the Texans on Wednesday night, including this nifty 12-yard run below.

McCaffrey displayed great quickness, and showed off his patented vision and patience as well.
At Stanford, McCaffrey was one of the most prolific players in all of college football over the past two seasons. He had more than 4,500 yards from scrimmage from 2015-16 before declaring for the 2017 NFL Draft.
