We analyze the Carolina Panthers offense before the draft.
Now that I’ve given my two cents on defensive draft priority it’s time to take a comprehensive view of the offensive personnel due to return in 2020. Before any speculation about who will be on the Panthers and who won’t is taken into consideration all the current players need to (and will) be evaluated.
Panther fans have to appreciate how well the offense performed this year despite the last-second flops. What we can appreciate even more is that the offense is due to get even better.
More experience across the board for all positions, an offensive coordinator with a penchant for the pass game, and the return of one of the greatest athletes Charlotte has ever seen can clean up a lot of the problems we saw in 2019. “Rebuild” might not be the best way to describe what’s happening, but with all of the changes we can certainly phrase it as a “restructuring”.
What’s exciting about the 2020 Panthers isn’t just the team itself, but the new coaching staff. Both sides added specialists to manage the individual groups, and they, along with the new coordinators, create a level of unpredictability that will provide boons to both units.
The Panthers’ offense is already a pretty exciting unit as it is. What they need to do is shore up on defense. If they do happen to spend a pick or two on offense don’t expect it to be anyone super exciting, and don’t expect it to be on the first night either.
