Curtis Samuel, WR
The most experienced return man on the Panthers roster from last season, is second-year wide receiver Curtis Samuel. The Ohio State product averaged 22.1 yards per return on 10 opportunities. While he didn’t have a touchdown, there were flashes of potential and Samuel definitely has the breakaway speed to be successful.
Injured last year during his most impressive performance to date, Samuel appeared on the verge of a break out rookie season but now finds himself on the roster bubble. Offseason additions of the veteran Torrey Smith and first-round draft pick, D.J. Moore, suddenly have the receiver room crowded with talent.
Special teams contributions from Samuel could give him an edge.
