Carolina Panthers 2015 Roster Projection

Recommended Posts

I think Chandler will be replaced after other teams cuts are made.  Carolina is well under the cap and can afford a medium priced tackle thats cut from another team

​The Panthers used a 3rd LB about 30% of the time last season. 

Due to are given situation at the time that percentage will change with shaq... And turnsik a special teams ace

Only 4 DEs? We went with 6 (although one was at home working on his music videos) last year.

Not that you're not right, just the way that roster ends up means there's some risk.

 

Do you have think that might be why KKs been getting reps at DE?

I've always thought Cotchery should and will make the team. I think there is very little chance he doesn't.  But anything is possible.

Wasn't Klein getting the 1st team reps with Shaq away and even some with him here? Has that changed? Hadn't seen anything indicating Glanton was ahead.

Wasn't Wes Horton the main starting DE after Hardy started making music full time? 

Don't know how to do multiquote on the app, but regarding your convo with Jeremy about Horton, I thought Horton was in on early downs because he was better against the run. Addison would come in on passing downs because he was better at getting to the QB. I'm not sure how that impacts either one's chances at making the final 53, but guys that get sacks are usually more valuable.

We'd be foolish to keep cotch bersin feels that role easily and ST depth lol.. Also the impact cotch would make(next to nothing) does not out weigh the 5to10 snaps a game we'd get from Hill.. Quick homeruns n mismatches..

Hill can't catch the ball consistently,a major strike against him unless something changes at caml.  If Brown and Ginn perform and if Byrd can continue improving when the pads come on, Hill is gone.

 

Only 4 DEs? We went with 6 (although one was at home working on his music videos) last year.

Frank was suspended, thus not taking a roster spot, and Hardy didn't count once he went on the list.  The team had 5 on the roster for a couple of weeks and spent most of the season with only 4, and Kony didn't pay significant meaningful snaps until later in the year.  They'll roll with 4 if they see better roster value elsewhere.

Definitely will be a year with hard cuts, the bottom of the roster has vastly improved. I actually see Marlowe and Coleman fighting for those starting positions. Tougher for Marlowe

Now that the Carolina Panthers offseason workouts are complete, here is my projected roster lineup based on first hand observations and reps received. 

Offense - 26

Quarterback - 2
Cam Newton
Derek Anderson

Running Back - 4
Jonathan Stewart
Fozzy Whitaker
Cameron Artis-Payne
Jordan Todman

Fullback - 1
Mike Tolbert

Tight End - 3
Greg Olsen
Ed Dickson
Brandon Williams

Wide Receiver - 6
Kelvin Benjamin 
Devin Funchess
Corey Brown
Ted Ginn
Brenton Bersin
Jerricho Cotchery

Offensive Line - 10
Michael Oher
Andrew Norwell
Ryan Kalil
Trai Turner
Mike Remmers
Jonathan Martin
Daryl Williams
Amini Silatolu 
Brian Folkerts
Nate Chandler

 

 

Defense - 24

Defensive Line - 8
Charles Johnson
Star Lotulelei 
Kawaan Short

Dwan Edwards
Mario Addison

Linebacker - 5
Thomas Davis
Luke Kuechly
Shaq Thompson
Adarius Glanton
David Mayo

Safety - 5
Roman Harper
Tre Boston
Kurt Coleman
Dean Marlowe
Colin Jones

Corners - 6
Josh Norman
Bene Benwikere
Charles Tillman
Melvin White
Carrington Byndom
Teddy Williams 

 

Special Teams - 3

Kicker - Graham Gano
Punter - Brad Nortman
Long Snapper - JJ Jansen 

 

Practice Squad - 10
Lee Ward
Garry Peters 
Damiere Byrd
Brandon Wegher 
Terry Redden
Martin Wallace
David Foucault
Rakim Cox
Marcus Lucas
Brian Blechen

 

Notes: 

  • Panthers keep one less linebacker and one additional safety due to popularity of "Buffalo" package. Glanton currently higher on depth chart than Klein.
  • CB Teddy Williams retained mostly for Special Teams abilities. 
  • Joe Webb not retained due to Cam Newton's improved health and other special teams additions added in offseason. 
  • All draft picks on regular roster until Gettleman shows otherwise. 
  • Nate Chandler retained for backup RT/G role. Versatility gets him a jersey. 
  • Brian Folkerts / Chris Scott position up in the air with Remmers taking backup center snaps. Folkerts as the only listed backup center on roster gets the spot for now. 

This is, by far, the most difficult year to make cuts to the roster in recent memory. Talent level is up, good players have to be released due to the numbers. Other teams will be signing cut Panthers players.

The whole point of drafting Shaq was ability to stay in 4-3 base with the ability to do what buffalo package does

I don't recall reading a word about Brandon Williams at all during OTAs or otherwise.  Was he working first/second team most of the time?

​This. We need him for fights.

​If they keep drafting like they have been, those decisions will only get tougher.

I am hoping we keep 6 linebackers.  Id sure hate for something to happen to Luke and have to rely on a rookie to fill his shoes.

 

If we did get rid of Klein could we get anything for him ?  A third or 4th round pick ?

If this happens,  well Klein was a 5th round pick that we don't want anymore, so no,

no one will offer a thing for him, not even a 7th.  I think he showed last year he is

not good enough on the outside, and Man of Steel Luke in the middle, he's not worth

a roster spot.

 

I was shocked when we drafted Mayo, our 2nd lb in a draft with 5 picks, especially since the

team seemed pretty happy with Glanton.

 

Makes me wonder if there is an issue we don't know about, maybe locker room or off field.

​I wouldn't read into it too much, he was probably the BPA on their board at the time so they pulled the trigger.

    • If they would have had the #5 pick then they could have had so many teams trying to trade up there for a QB. They'd be ahead of the Chargers and Dolphins who both need QB's. The Dolphins have 3 first round draft picks this year. That would have been such a good haul, potentially grabbing those picks had they won more games. They'd have to leapfrog several teams. Unfortunately at #7 both the chargers and the Dolphins don't need to move up. The only scenario i'd see is if they pick the QB's they need and the Dolphins pull the trigger on a OT to protect their QB, the Panthers would get the 18th and 26th, plus a lower round pick to move up to #7 if the draft board falls to where no OT was taken prior to the Panthers pick.      The thing is, that if the Panthers decide to stay with Cam, they need to protect his blind side and if the best OT is on the board, I don't think they would give up that pick for 2 first rounders. I wouldn't. Especially when it's the best tackle of the draft. I don't know.    IF they stay at the pick and Brown is available or Thomas...Take Thomas. 
    • Becton went 4th Ovr in Daniel jeremiahs last mock- I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he isn’t available in the third  
    • This has all been thoroughly debated examined and tested by people who are experts in the field. Noll is not one guy out on a limb. The bottom line is the consensus amongst respected experts is that sports stadiums do not provide the economic impact they claim to. https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/page1-econ/2017-05-01/the-economics-of-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ https://ritholtz.com/2017/07/economics-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ That article was written by a member of the Federal Reserve. Surely he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to money and economic impact. Here are a few quotes from that article I would particularly draw to your attention:  "When surveyed, 86 percent of economists agreed that “local and state governments in the U.S. should eliminate subsidies to professional sports franchises.” "In a 2017 poll, 83 percent of the economists surveyed agreed that “Providing state and local subsidies to build stadiums for professional sports teams is likely to cost the relevant taxpayers more than any local economic benefits that are generated.” It's not that stadiums don't bring in any money, or have any economic impact, no one is arguing that. But the reality is that the numbers show that impact is less than the cost of the subsidies provided, by large margins. This is why the vast majority of economists say they should be discontinued. Your math about tickets is irrelevant because all of that revenue goes into the private owners pockets. The point is that fewer games means fewer times people are coming to the area and having that impact you are talking about. That's why more games has more impact. Ticket prices and sales are irrelevant because we're talking about the impact on the economy, not actual ticket sales. It's not about how many tickets are bought at what prices, it's about how many times people stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, etc etc etc. And the people who measure these things and look at the data far more than you or I say it's not close, stadiums are a bad deal for taxpayers as an economic investment. Bottom line, if a cardiologist tells you you'd better stop eating fried foods or you're not likely to last another five years, do you do what the highly trained expert says, or do you sit there and argue with him about whether the burgers you cook on the grill should count or not?
