Panthers coach Ron Rivera expects Mike Mitchell and D.J. Campbell to compete at strong safety.

Haruki Nakamura isn't in the mix after his disastrous 2012. Charles Godfrey will start at free safety. Mitchell is a run-stopping specialist. He started just eight games in four years with the Raiders. A 2012 seventh-rounder, Campbell played 252 snaps on defense as a rookie. On paper — and likely in practice — the Panthers have one of the league's worst secondaries.

 

 


The Charlotte Observer considers CB Drayton Florence a "favorite" for a starting job.

This is the same Drayton Florence who was released twice in 2012. He wasn't re-signed by the Lions after missing time with a concussion and forearm injury, and struggling in the 310 snaps he managed to take the field for. Beat writer Joseph Person projects Florence to start opposite Josh Norman, with D.J. Moore and Captain Munnerlyn fighting for snaps in the slot. With only five picks, the Panthers didn't draft a corner. It's not a good situation.

We could go in so many directions next year with our 1st overall pick... CB, S, WR.. sheesh.. and I guess TE was an option this year.. so throw that on the list.

I'm telling y'all Naka isn't making this team.

Why the hell you want DJ at Strong?? I can see FS but not SS. I guess they may want to use him like a nickle SS? Sort of like his Vaccaro was at Texas??

Let's not mince words here: our secondary is a botched abortion.
