Joe Person's 2022 Carolina Panthers 53-man roster projection extravaganza


Recommended Posts

Quarterbacks (2)

On the roster: Matt Corral, Sam Darnold or Baker Mayfield/Jimmy Garoppolo

In the mix: P.J. Walker

Long shot: Davis Cheek

When NFL minicamps wrapped up without the Panthers and Browns finalizing a Mayfield deal, it assured the Panthers’ never-ending Great Quarterback Pursuit would drag out a few more weeks, likely into July. There’s no real impetus for either side to get a deal done now, especially considering everyone in the NFL is about to be on vacation. But the talks will pick back up as camp approaches, and the Browns will either agree to pay enough of Mayfield’s $18.8 million salary to satisfy Panthers owner David Tepper or they won’t. Trading for Garoppolo is a non-starter because of concerns over his surgically repaired throwing shoulder and $25 million salary. But the Panthers could be interested if San Francisco cuts him.

In the mix: None

On the roster: Brian Burns, Yetur Gross-Matos, Derrick Brown, Matt Ioannidis, Marquis Haynes, Amare’ Barno, Daviyon Nixon, Bravvion Roy, Darryl Johnson

Front 7 on D on paper concerns me quite a bit. Shaq is the only legit starter at LBer, Luvu could get there as he was great in a lesser role last year but it's yet to be seen how he'll do with significant snaps on D.

DE is thin if Burns and YGM don't take steps forward and even if they do not much depth.

DT a huge concern if Brown plays like he did last year, although I do like the Ioannidis acquisition.

That group of tight ends is easily the worst in the NFL and the worst in franchise history. My God. 
 

Linebacking corp ain’t much better. Shaq is a stud but the rest is garbage. 

I agree about the right ends. Only one worse was when we had Jeff King as our starter in 2009.

Ricci moves back to TE/Hback/whatever, so no colin or steven on this roster.

Those two spots goto Hoskins and Brown on the lines.

Plus I think smith > Roberts at WR, but smith may get caught again...

This coaching staff played Jordan over Brown the entire season last year, what makes you think they see anything in Brown?

People think Brown is some stud that Rhule stuck in a closet. Most rosters he wouldn’t have made the team last year. Why we took a chance on him over Trey Smith, I’ll never understand. We were a first hand witness to his horrific Senior Bowl, but then again we watched Little and Gaulden at the combine and spent a 2nd and two 3rds on them.

Personally, I like Mays on the roster over Brown and Daley.

If we get a QB, the era of mocking “first round TE to Carolina” will come back… ad nauseam

We need a TE badly. Besides QB it’s probably the #1 need besides LB.
