Yes very dynamic and on paper even better than 2003 Panthers' D line. The main sub back then for passing downs was just to bring in Al Wallace, right?

 

I was going to agree with you but then i watched this..

 

our current roster might be good on paper, but until they put it the results- they are just another good D-line

we haven't even seen our 2 rookie DTs play yet and we a crowning them better than 2003 D-line???

 

we go to the NFCCG and beyond- then we can have a discussion about them being better..

I think people forget how nasty and dominant our front 4 was in 2003.

Very true, but I believe this year's D-Line has the potential to be just as good.

 

The bad news is we could hide the deficiencies more in the secondary b/c the DB's were allowed a lot more contact in 2003 than they will be in 2013.  I remember many receivers that year (Marvin Harrison, Tory Holt, Eagles no-name group) complaining about how rough the Panthers DB's were (and not flagged).  But anyway, it was good coaching b/c it worked.  Ricky Manning Jr, would have never made the impact he did with his playing style into today's game.

 

I personally don't see our secondary today as much worse.  Really, outside of Deon Grant, no secondary player from that team had a lasting impact in the league.  But I think they have the possibility to get exposed a lot more.

We had the 1st and 2nd best DLinemen in the NFL IMO in Jenkins (1) and Pep (2)

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
