What strengths can the Carolina Panthers definitively depend on in 2020?

The Carolina Panthers go into the new season with trepidation and excitement in equal measure. Little is expected of the group in 2020 after an offseason of wholesale changes. But there is some real potential on the roster if everything clicks into place right away.

It promises to be a rollercoaster ride for the Carolina Panthers and their fanbase. But it is one they should embrace. A rebuild like this is going to have a positive impact on their overall aspirations down the line. So it is something that everyone associated with the organization should keep in mind when the team goes through its growing pains against high-class opposition on the schedule.

New head coach Matt Rhule will be leaning on certain areas of the field more than others. It is not hard to point out their areas of strength. And this is something that has the potential to keep the Panthers competitive, at the very least.

How potential areas of weakness fare next time around will probably be more telling to their eventual record. Having no preseason games to improve chemistry is only going to hamper the Panthers, especially early on. But if they can build as the campaign progresses, then it should come with some memorable moments along the way.

This will be essential if Carolina wants to attract big-name free agents with more cap space available next spring. It will also show those on the outside looking in that things are heading in the right direction under their new head coach.

Here are three definitive strengths for the Panthers that you can hang your hat on performing well in 2020.
