Roster Predicition / Roster cuts

Jarrett will not only not get cut, he'll start opposite if Smith for most of the season, early season at the very least.

I think everyone of those guys would be claimed off of our practice squad.
I think Guy goes to IR and we find a way to hold on to Stanford and Gettis. Pike probably will get put on the practice squad, from which he'll be claimed pretty quickly. Not sure about Vaughan.
Trent Guy is a local and undrafted FA that nobody more than 50 miles from Charlotte has ever heard of. There's no way he gets a PS spot over someone else. The Panthers can't really afford to IR him- they'd cut him first with the odds being very strong he'll not get picked up by anyone else. If the Panthers need him at some point, they'll place a local call to wherever he's working and ask him to come in.

Someone posted some stats about this earlier and showed Fox has carried 6 receivers I believe twice but maybe three times. Although it seems rare this is a situation that might call for it with so many young receivers.
He's carried 6 WRs when one of them has technically been either a return guy (Mark Jones) or a ST guy like Karl "Hands of Stone" Hankton.

WRS smith lafell jarret moore wright edwards.... unless guy does something awsome kick returning he will probably go to the practice sqaud with dexter jackson and if we sign antonio bryant jarret or moore will be cut even though we should give jarret one more chance
We should sign moose before bryant. We should sign hoover (for a WR) before bryant.

My current mock Roster has 41 players that I personally see making the team.
This leaves 12 bubbles spots. Keep noted that this is just the opinion of one fan and is simply and estimation as I have no real insight
Assured (On my List of 41):
Jordan Pugh (Saftey)
Marcus Hudson (Saftey)
Eric Norwood (LB)
Wallace Wright (WR)
Mike Goodson (RB)
Duke Robinson (G)
While my list of 41 is obviously larger I chose to list these players as I felt some people could make arguments against them. Eric Norwood, Jordan Pugh, and Mike Goodson were all relatively high draft picks who I think have no shot of getting cut. Mike Goodson has really started to shine and Jordan Pugh is a lock for the 3rd Safety Spot. While Marcus Hudson did get burned for a TD and Wallace Wright did fumble on the 5 yard line they simply offer too much at special teams. Hudson is a thumper and Wallace should offer help at WR. Duke Robinson just offers too much upside to cut.
Bubble Players (Choose 12):
Sutton is popular among both the fans and the players. He forced that fumble on Special Teams vs. the Titans, can make plays out of the backfield, can play running back, and even fullback. He’s just a good player to have on the field.
I have seen two similar posts about bubble players that both failed to mention McClain. I’m not sure if it’s because he is doing his job so well that no one is talking about him or fans have failed to notice his talent. He was actually valued higher then where he was drafted and I think has a good shot to be the 4th CB. The only problem is we already have an undersized quick DB in Munnerlyn. The upside is he could be a returner in ST. RJ Stanford is bigger and more physical and has looked good on special teams. He had a nice pass break up vs. the Titans. CJ Wilson was being touted last year until he lost his job to Munnerlyn. He has had a good preseason and I could really see us keep 2 of these guys.
Corey Irvin was last rounds 3rd round draft pick who broke his ankle right at the beginning of the year. I believe he is better at getting pressure on the inside then stopping the run. Derek Landri is an overachieving white guy from Jacksonville so John Fox probably has a major hard on for him but he at least appears to play bigger then Nick Hayden, who has ahd 2 whole sacks this preseason. I don’t think he deserves being one of the more unpopular Panthers but I see him being the odd man out here.
Now as I am typing this I tend to believe Morty Ivy is a lock to make the team. He is just a great back up and with Davis likely to be on the PUP list most the year, Jamar Williams still injured and Eric Norwood still playing most his plays with his hand in the dirt. The Longer Jamar Williams stays injured the less likely he is to make the team. Sean Ware or Culberson are long shots simply to add depth. It’s interesting how one of teams’ strongest squads going into the season is now probably one of its most depleted.
Oh hey there David Gettis! What’s that you’re faster then both Jarrett and LaFelle despite being the same size and weight as both of them? What’s that you are rarely tackled by initial contact and have more receiving yards than both of them in the preseason? You took huge hits and still held onto the ball? You’re cheaper too?! Oh really….So I have a clear bias towards Gettis but I think his upside is just too great.
Trent Guy looked better at returning punts than Edwards but I was still pretty under whelmed. I think he has practice squad written all over him.
I like Dwayne Jarrett. I want him to make the team and be successful. But he is a 4th year player who has had 5 receptions for 29 yards this preseason. In game three against the Titans I did here some phrases never before linked to Jarrett; “Great Route” and “Beat His Defender.” The end of days is coming?
With the amount of pass rushers on this team the numbers are against him but I believe you load up on as much talent as you can. It’s hard to argue with 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles but then again I don’t believe any of this was against 1s. I hope the journeyman finds a permanent home soon I’m just not sure if it is with us.
I’ll admit I was one of those guys who thought Clausen was going to have to beat Hunter for the job. And I’ll also admit that I was dead wrong and a fool for believing that Hunter had any shot at the #2 spot. Now I have no idea what is going to happen here. Are we trying to hide Hunter & Pike? Are we going to try and hide one on the PS? Will they duke it out in a battle royal in the 4th preseason game?
No it’s not just because he got titiin his name, its just cause tackles tend to be more valued then guards. I could be mistaken but I think C.J. Davis has a little experience at center. Don’t hold me to that one. Honestly as with LB anyone could come in and surprise here as a back up.

I'm actually looking forward to Thursday's game to get a few more looks at some of these guys. The WR's will most likely be shuttling in and out the entire game and we will probably see quite a bit of Cantwell and Pike, especially if Clausen is feeling the toe. On defense the last push for positions will still get us some looks at players that could see significant time on the field this year. You are right about Norwood, every play I saw him in against Tenn. was in the 4th quarter at DE. I think they have some development work to do with him and we may not see much of him except in long yardage situations once the season starts. Eric Moore has his work cut out for him, but he has shown up every single game so far. Great effort and he deserves to be on a roster. I like his motor and heart. I hope Sutton isn't hurt too bad, I think he is a lock if he's on the mend. Thursday will be make or break for quite a few on your list, IMO.

Gettis has tremendous upside. I was excited when we drafted him. He will be good one day. Hopefully one day this year.
