panther4life added a topic in Carolina PanthersMy Preseason top 50 after re-watching every gameThanks to NFL Game Pass free trial I was able to watch all 3 games again (3rd time for each) with much better look thanks to the condensed and slow motion features.
I limited the list to 47, to account for the 3 specialist(Gano,Nortman and Jansen) and our 3 injured D-line starters. This is not a final 53 projection, just the top 47 who played in preseason based on my observations. Would love some feedback on what everyone else thinks.
This list excludes Benjamin due to his injury, otherwise he obviously would have been here.
Cameron-Artis Payne (best looking pure runner on the team throughout preseason)
Fozzy Whitaker (improved after Buffalo game and is def. the best in pass protection)
Jordan Todman (might be the best at getting skinny in the hole)
Brandon Wegher (did his work against scrubs but still looked good)
Jonathan Stewart( just didn't see much action to be able to rank him above the others)
No way we can keep this many,so odds are Wegher goes to practice squad and Fozzy/Todman decision will come down to the wire
Tolbert (Finally looked like his former self against New England)
Devin Funchess (was limited but he looked good)
Tedd Ginn Jr.
I couldn't put Corey on this list. He sucked very badly this preseason. 5-6(6th is subjective) drops on 11 targets.
Will 8 be enough to start the season? Have to believe Amini ultimately makes the roster and that might kick Folkerts off or they could keep 9. Nate Chandler does not belong in the NFL as an 0-lineman.
Johnson, Star and Short will bump 3 off this list come cut time. Maybe we keep 8 and the final spot comes down to the better run defender in Miley or pass rusher in Cox.
Could easily see this being the final LB's.
Teddy Williams (Yes those with a good memory, I wanted to cut him after the Buffalo game, however he’s bounced back strong)
If 5 is enough( I think it is) then these should be the guys imo. If we keep another, gotta pick between Byndom and Heath.
Colin Jones (mainly his special teams contributions)
Don't see any reason this list would change when we get down to 53.
