With the preseason now behind us, it’s time to look ahead to the 2019 regular season. Cat Crave breaks down the NFC South and how the Carolina Panthers will fare in the division.
Panthers fans have to be excited about first-round pick defensive end, Brian Burns. Burns was able to sack opposing quarterbacks four times as well as force a fumble throughout his first preseason in the NFL. The other rookie receiving praise is offensive tackle Greg Little. Little was the Panthers’ second-round draft pick who is expected to protect franchise quarterback Cam Newton for years to come.
The Panthers seem to have produced another solid draft, but that might not have even been the highlight of their offseason. Carolina was able to acquire center Matt Paradis, linebacker Bruce Irvin and defensive end Gerald McCoy in free agency. All figure to step in as day one starters and make a significant impact right away.
The draft seems like a long time ago and free agency even longer than that. While fans surely followed what the Panthers were up to this offseason, they may not have paid close attention to the moves the NFC South foes were making.
No worries! Cat Crave has got you covered.
We will look back on the key additions and losses each NFC South team made in the offseason and what impact it will have on the upcoming regular season. More importantly, we’ll break down just how Carolina stacks up against the division rivals.
Read on to recap the 2019 offseason moves of the NFC South and how it shifts the division.
