The Carolina Panthers have gotten...

Recommended Posts

We are much improved simply by shoring up the secondary and giving our rookie corners much needed experience. Add Adams and Captain and move Coleman back to free safety and the defense went from the worse in the league back to top 10. 

On offense we improved by finding a backup center. The rest of the line while potentially better is still an unknown how they work together. Otherwise we lost Ginn which we didn't replace with Shepard or Johnson and dropped off but Benjamin being a year removed from ACL surgery may signal his improvement so it could be a wash.

Given that the offense wasn't the problem last year particularly before all the injuries, we are definitely better off and we are likely not done. Much room for optimism.

Yeah, I would say so, especially since we will prob draft two rotational players.

What changed at runningback?

Defense is much improved.

FS Coleman> Boston

SS Adams= or > Coleman

Bradberry and Worley should be better than their rookie years

Munnerlyn = or > Bene who was the starting nickel in September

LB- Roughly the same. Only turnover was losing Klein. Shaq is more experienced but Davis is a year older

DT position should be better as Butler should be ready to take on a bigger role and Soliai is gone.

DE- Much better. Peppers even at 37 should be better than Ealy. Addison also projects to be much better than we projected for him to be last September.

Offense.

O-line. I really can't say here until we see if Oher can come back and if Kalil can improve and make it past year 1 of his contract. Daryl Williams may be an upgrade to Remmers at RT but need more  time to believe that 

WR- Biggest regression thus far. I have 0 confidence in CJ the WR being as good as Ginn. Maybe he can be a wash in replacing Brown. Also in September last year we were led to believe that Funchess was going to take the next step and he didn't. Shepard i view more of a ST upgrade 

TE- Wash. Olsen is getting a year older but I doubt it will slow him down 

RB- Stewart is a year older and Tolbert is gone. As it sits Fozzy and Cap would get more snaps. Need to add a better back in the draft for sure

QB- Cam is still Cam and that's a good thing. However his supporting cast at WR has been downgraded and would affect him if we entered the season without any upgrades here.

The loss of Klein doesn't worry me in the slightest. When Mayo got his opportunity, he markedly outplayed Klein. Markedly! And honestly, everyone should be at least a little excited to see what Jared Norris and Jeremy Cash really bring to the table.

Why does Jimmy Johns slap mayo on an italian?  O&V with some salt, pepper, and oregano should be enough.

I think the biggest upgrade is not having to deal with a Superbowl hangover that screws with us mentally

 

that alone is a Ginormous plus that people don't take into account on here

I feel like we are unsure at punt returning. I felt Ginn was solid. I don't want to return to the days of high anxiety with whoever ends up back there.

I'm going to say it's a wash for the most part.

O-Line was upgraded a bit, but that is only if Oher is healthy for 2017. If not, then we are back in the same boat.

WR - I think we can write this off as a wash as well for now, but with potential for growth. We knew what we had in Ginn and Philly. Time to see if we can develop Shepard and utilize Johnson effectively.

D-Line - you are essentially upgrading Ealy to Peppers and that is it. 

LB - Downgrade in depth. Sorry but I don't trust Mayo backing up Luke. This needs to be addressed.

CB - upgraded with the addition of Munnerlyn in the slot. Bradberry is coming into his own and it will be interesting to see how he continues. I think the jury is still out on Worley. I would like us to still add a stud CB on this loaded class to battle with Worley this camp. Competition raises the bar for players.

S - We added a veteran in Adams. Admittedly I don't know much about him and how he is in coverage. If he can cover better than Boston, then an upgrade. Still would like to add someone else here in the draft.

Special Teams - Slight upgrade with the addition of Shepard. Can he return punts too? That will be an issue with Ginn gone. Not that he ever returned the ball, but at least he caught it.

Everything else remained the same...

All depends if Cam plays better, including the other players. After the draft, the panthers will definitely be better. Having Love over Soaili is a plus too.
