Quarterback - 2 Cam Newton Derek Anderson Note: Joe Webb gets cut, due to cams health and a deeper roster than 2014.
Running Back - 4 Jonathan Stewart Fozzy Whitaker Cameron Artis-Pain Mike Tolbert Note- Ginn can handle KOs, besides most are touchbacks now.
Tight End - 4 Greg Olsen Ed Dickson Richie Brockel Brandon Williams Note: Brandon Williams is a good 4 phase STer
Wide Receiver - 6 Kelvin Benjamin Devin Funchess Corey Brown Ted Ginn Brenton Bersin Jerricho Cotchery Note: in my original hill beat out cothery. STs will determine 4-6. Offensive Line - 9 Michael Oher Andrew Norwell Ryan Kalil Trai Turner Mike Remmers Chris Scott Daryl Williams Brian Folkerts Nate Chandler Note: folkerts is a lock unless Dave picks up a different C. Most carry either 2 or 3 or have a trusted backup that can snap. Scott fills the emergency role. Defense: 25 Defensive Line - 9 Charles Johnson Star Lotulelei Kawaan Short Frank Alexander Kony Ealy Colin Cole Dwan Edwards Kyle Love Mario Addison Note: Considering recent injuries, Panthers opt to keep DT Kyle Love. I echo this Linebacker - 6 Thomas Davis Luke Kuechly Shaq Thompson AJ Klein Ad Glanton JasOn Trusnik
Note: big disagreement here. I'm cutting mayo, PS better fit. Focus on ST, need LBs. Safety - 4 Roman Harper Tre Boston Kurt Coleman Colin Jones Corners - 6 Josh Norman Bene Benwikere Charles Tillman MelWhite Teddy williams Lou Young Note: Lou Young quietly had an impressive OTAs and zod singing his camp Too. its a tough group to judge. Special Teams - 3 Kicker - Graham Gano Punter - Brad Nortman Long Snapper - JJ Jansen
Practice Squad - 10 Lee Ward Damiere Byrd Brandon Wegher Martin Wallace David Foucault Marcus Lucas david mayo Carrington-Byndom Aurther miley Dean Marlowe
The biggest improvement comes after the first season to beginning the second. kony has been looking like a UDFA, before zod stated his struggles. Not ready to give up, but its showing why he lasted all the way til 60th overall( still believe it was great value). CJ and hardy did take about three years before they "arrived".
Kony needs to get to work. He looks weak and the effort is poor. RR/Washington need to have a come to Jesus moment, wake him up!
klein played in about 30%(when he wasn't injured) of the defensive snap last year. The reasons for me listing DBs, cause nickel/Buffalo package was the base. Shaq needs displace a DB in order to stay in the base D.
Or are you fine with him playing STs and 20 snaps on defense?
King with the dig on cam... "Leadership and maturity comments". Hes still bitter his ego got blasted when cam first refused a interview four years ago. I can't wait to see his spin once can starts winning all sorts of awards.
Remember panthers still run the read option as a staple, old school FB doesn't fit that. Todozer is a RB in my book, great for 3rd downs short&long. Plus he's another goal line option if shula uses him.
So if Collins Jones is most improved, along with being the 2014 nickel starter. Tillman woke up once the pads came on. Bene should be the starting Nickel this season.
Where does Shaq fit on defense and how many snaps does he get? I had HUGE questions about this pick and the whole class. I know first rounders have spoiled us fans, but some players take more time or there just isn't room right now.
I wonder how disappointed fans will be if Shaq is mainly STs this year?
