Which position groups might be better than expected for the Carolina Panthers in 2020?

Things might get worse before they get better for the Carolina Panthers. This is down to a severely disrupted offseason and a complete change in roster and coaching staff who will not get much of a chance to develop chemistry before their Week 1 opener against the Las Vegas Raiders.

New head coach Matt Rhule has got his work cut out. But it is hard to deny what an impressive start he has made to life with the Carolina Panthers. The former Baylor man has come across incredibly well during a troubled time. And it is clear he has already won over his new-look roster.

The Panthers face a daunting NFC South in 2020. And their schedule overall looks to be a difficult one. This might have led to some bleak projections from pundits up and down the country. But there is enough talent on both sides of the ball for the team to be competitive, at the very least.

Some positions look stronger than others. This is to be expected when one considers just how widescale of a rebuild Carolina is currently undertaking.

There are some serious question marks about certain areas of the field. And it is going to be a case of sink or swim from the off with no preseason games on the schedule.
