NFL roster no. 21: Carolina Panthers

. Carolina Panthers. 21. team. 87. .

I’m going to cut the Carolina Panthers some slack here as I’ve been absolutely shredding them this offseason as having the most embarrassing QB situation in the league.

That could change in the coming months with Baker Mayfield and Jimmy Garoppolo still available, players the Panthers could afford and should make moves for.

With that being said, I think the Panthers have a good roster besides the QB situation.

If Christian McCaffrey can stay healthy, he’s one of the top superstars offensively in the NFL.

DJ Moore, Terrace Marshall, Robby Anderson, and Rashard Higgins are a strong top four at the receiver position and I like the tight end duo of Tommy Tremble and Ian Thomas.

The offensive line for Carolina has been substantially upgraded with the addition of new left tackle Ikem Ekwonu, a projected top overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft for much of the offseason, as well as a stud at the guard position in Austin Corbett.

The Panthers also made one of the more underrated moves of the 2022 offseason by signing center Bradley Bozeman at well under market value.

Defensively is where the Panthers are really impressive on paper.

Derrick Brown, Brian Burns, and Yetur Gross-Matos are the cornerstone pieces up front with a loaded secondary, at least in terms of talent.

Xavier Woods will start at safety along with young stud Jeremy Chinn, and the cornerback position is fully stocked:

  • Jaycee Horn
  • CJ Henderson
  • Donte Jackson
  • Rashaan Melvin

The Panthers’ roster is far from perfect but they have a lot of pieces on both sides of the ball.

Scott Fitterer needs to trade for Baker Mayfield or Jimmy Garoppolo yesterday.
