The Carolina Panthers depth chart is much different on the offensive line, but what impact can the tackle positions have in 2020?

There has been plenty of changes to the Carolina Panthers depth chart this offseason. The decision-makers within the franchise have worked tirelessly to bring in the right sort of characters that fit new head coach Matt Rhule’s way of thinking.

This is especially evident on the offensive line. Some notable players have been brought into the fold to hopefully improve on a dismal area of the field that played a huge part in them finishing with a 5-11 record in 2019.

The Panthers depth chart at this position has a good mix of youth and experience. Offensive tackle is an area of the field that is going to be crucial in any success that comes the way of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who signed a three-year, $63 million contract in free agency to finally get a second chance of making a starting spot in the NFL his own.

The offensive tackles will also play a pivotal role in All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey’s ability to build on an exceptional 2019 campaign. The former first-round pick likes to run on the outside and having two bookends paving the way will do his chances of another 2,000 all-purpose yard season the world of good.

Things will not be easy for the Panthers in 2020 during the first year of a rebuild. Having a pair of offensive tackles they can rely on is going to ease this transition immensely.
