Which Carolina Panthers could be affected more than most with no preseason games ahead of the 2020 campaign?

The Carolina Panthers will have no preseason games before their week one opener against the Las Vegas Raiders. This has the potential to have significant ramifications for teams league-wide. And although it is probably the safest option in the current climate. It does not detract from what a detrimental impact it could have on a revamped roster and brand-new coaching staff.

Very little is expected of the Carolina Panthers in 2020. And not having a preseason to hone chemistry and communication on the field is going to further hamper their chances of surprising people. They will get the chance to work on their respective skillset during training camp. But that is no substitute for getting on the field in a competitive setting.

Having no preseason is an absolute disaster for those on the roster bubble and undrafted free agents looking for a chance. The Panthers might decide to go with those who boast more experienced rather than take their chances on an unproven prospect that has spent no time in the NFL.

This is the nature of the beast at this time of year. But the impact of no preseason fixtures also has the potential to affect even the most seasoned professionals.

Carolina has brought in a wealth of fresh faces in pursuit of turning around their fortunes. But gelling together in a short space of time is going to be a mammoth task.

Here are four Panthers who could be affected most by the lack of preseason games in 2020.
