Panthers depth chart: Plenty of potential in wide receiver room
The Carolina Panthers depth chart features some outstanding wide receivers, but how much impact can they have in 2020.
There are plenty of question marks surrounding the Carolina Panthers depth chart heading into 2020. Fortunately for new offensive coordinator Joe Brady, the wide receiver group is not one of them.
For all the faults one can pick from the Panthers depth chart following a flurry of free-agent activity. There is real hope that the wideout group can take a significant leap forward in Brady’s scheme and give Carolina at least a fighting chance of being competitive.
The organization has done a good job of putting quality pieces around big-money signing Teddy Bridgewater next season. This should enable the quarterback to maximize his potential and possibly cement his starting spot for the duration of his contract.
New head coach Matt Rhule focused heavily on offense during free agency. And much will be expected of them with a young defense that will bring its own set of complications if they are not ready for the rigors of the NFL.
The wide receivers on the roster will be of paramount importance to any success that comes their way. If the passing game shows a marked improvement with a more consistent signal-caller under center, it will also take some of the pressure off All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey, who logged more than 400 touches in 2019.
There is plenty of intrigue surrounding the Panthers depth chart heading into training camp. It is expected to be a season of inconsistency during the first year of a rebuild and the wide receivers will need to stand up and be counted.
