The Panthers WR group ranked 26th overall in 2019 and vaulted to 8th last season.

21. CAROLINA PANTHERS

Panthers wide receivers went from grading 26th in 2019 to eighth last season thanks to the addition of Robby Anderson and a breakout year from Curtis Samuel, who moved on to Washington. Anderson took to a new role as he moved around the formation and lined up in the slot more than ever, responding with career highs in receiving grade at 76.0 and yards per route at 1.99.

D.J. Moore had another strong season, this time as a deep threat who ranked fifth in the league with 463 yards on 20-plus yard passes. Anderson and Moore make up one of the better 1-2 punches in the league, and the No. 3 role will be a battle between David Moore and rookie second-rounder Terrace Marshall. Moore has been a good complementary vertical threat in his four years in the league, while Marshall adds another big body with contested-catch ability and toughness in the middle of the field. Marshall came in at No. 28 on the PFF draft board and had the highest contested catch percentage in the draft class over the last two years.

The tight end situation was bleak in 2020 as only the Patriots had less than Carolina’s 27 receptions from the position. They also had the lowest tight end receiving grade at 39.5. Dan Arnold brings a big-bodied threat from Arizona, where he caught 32 for 444 yards last season, while rookie third-rounder Tommy Tremble is a fantastic run blocker and a potential H-back who can line up all over the formation. Ian Thomas also returns, though he’s yet to grade above 57.3 as a receiver in his three years in the league.

Even with the loss of Samuel, the Panthers have the pieces to be one of the better receiving units in the NFL once again.

Does PFF repost stuff? This was discussed a month or two ago in here. We all said the same thing that Samuel leaving shouldn’t have dropped us that much after adding Marshall, Smith and Moore 2. That’s said, I’d assume 10-21 are all bunched together and small upgrades can move you up or down a few spots. Samuel may have just graded really high.

DJ Moore is criminally underrated. 

I've said it a hundred times, its only b/c he makes it look so easy.

That catch and run down the sidelines against ATL where it looked like he would get chased out of bounds but they just couldn't catch him.  Even the highlight looks almost mundane.  His splash plays look the same as the other plays.  None of this is a knock on the kid, but even I yawn watching his highlights.  I dont understand that.  How can a long TD strike be boring?

Ask DJ Moore.

Ask DJ Moore.

It was a great play, but the dude has 10 TDs in 3 years. Aside from that catch and run, he scored 3 more times in the other 15 games. Yes, I know Teddy, but that’s why he’s underrated and not considered elite, to tie in that other thread. I 100% want to extend him next year and think Darnold will help as 2-4 TDs a year isn’t enough, especially since the other elite guy we have on offense has 25 TDs in his last 19 games. Again, no disrespect to DJ, but scoring gets you noticed.
