My Personal Look At The Possible 2013 Panthers Depth Chart

With the 2013 NFL Draft coming faster than most of us have expected, I thought I would be fun to post my impressions on who will be the starters in the coming 2013 season. With the recent acquisitions of both Safety Mike Mitchel from Oakland and Wide Receiver Ted Ginn Jr. from San Francisco and the new contract signed by last year’s standout Dwan Edwards, it seemed to be a prudent time to show who I think will start, play back up, and who will end up being cut. So without further ado, I present my ideas for the Panthers 2013 Depth Chart.


QB: 1. Cam Newton 2. Derek Anderson 3. Jimmy Clausen

RB: 1. DeAngelo Williams 2. Jonathon Stewart 3. Armond Smith

FB: 1. Mike Tolbert

WR1: 1. Steve Smith 2. Ted Ginn Jr. 3. David Gettis

WR2: 1. Brandon LaFell 2. Kealoha Pilares 3. Joe Adams

RDE: 1. Greg Hardy 2. Thomas Keiser 3. Mario Addison

DT: 1. Frank Kearse 2. Sione Fua 3. Colin Cole

DT: 1. Dwan Edwards 2. Nate Chandler

LDE: 1. Charles Johnson 2. Frank Alexander

OLB1: 1. Jon Beason 2. Jordan Senn

Those are my thoughts, I could go more in-depth into the subject, but I’m not exactly sure on where I should go in detail. If have a problem with my supposed Depth Chart then feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below, and I will definitely answer back with my own personal rebuttal.

    Why not predict at least a couple of draft selections before posting a depth chart? I’m not busting your balls, just saying it would help get a better look even if you put an asterisk next to their name or something. I think they’ll definitely address DT or maybe even take Elam if he’s there in round 2. Would make this a better depth chart though if you at least accounted for a couple of draft selections.

      Those are already on the site, I just thought it’d be fun to post something out of the blue and unconventional. Look at my panther prospects for possible draft picks.

    I think Gettis will beat out Lafell. Wouldn’t be the first time.
