We gave the wide receiver group with the Carolina Panthers their very own power rankings ahead of training camp.

The Carolina Panthers go into 2020 with some outstanding wide receiver weapons. They appear to be a very talented group that has the capability of putting significant points on the board under new offensive coordinator Joe Brady.

The former LSU passing coordinator masterminded the Tigers’ historic campaign in 2019 that saw them clinch a National Championship in convincing fashion. And there is real hope that Brady can have a similar impact during his time with the Carolina Panthers.

Competition for game time is set to be extremely fierce during a potentially shortened training camp and preseason. One could make a case for any wideout on the Panthers’ to make the 53-man roster. But how they impress before competitive action gets underway is going to be crucial.

Carolina is also expecting free-agent signing Teddy Bridgewater to be a more accurate presence under center next season. This was an area of significant concern in the absence of Cam Newton through injury. And the former New Orleans Saint looks to have all the tools necessary to thrive in Brady’s scheme.

There are still plenty of questions to answer regarding the Panthers’ defense in 2020. They are relatively inexperienced and will need to come together quickly to perform well. This is going to come with some growing pains. But the team could still stand half a chance of surprising people if their offensive players live up to expectations.

We ranked the current wide receivers ahead of a crucial camp for the franchise in the coming weeks.
