"According to Pro Football Focus , Cole was the No. 61 defensive tackle out of 69 qualifying players last year and struggled in both run and pass defense."
Panthers blog's 2013 season review:
Defensive Statistics: played in 316 of the Panthers' 1036 defensive snaps for 30.5% of defensive snaps, 17 total tackles, 1 sack
Cole was highly ineffective when on the field, graded poorly on a consistent basis by PFF, and by all rights should not “start” another game for the Panthers. The best that could be said is that Cole was a “serviceable” role-player, but if he enters the 2014 season as any more than depth we should all be very surprised."
yeah we have two budding blue chip defensive tackles so that's what his role is. i mean who didn't know this.
