What were some of the ways from the first unofficial depth chart released by the Carolina Panthers?

The Carolina Panthers released their unofficial depth chart ahead of their Week 1 opener against the Las Vegas Raiders. This is a strong indicator as to who is going to see prominent game time during the early stages of the campaign. But this is a situation that will clearly change with every passing game.

New head coach Matt Rhule is going into the season relatively blind given the lack of preseason games to see just what he is going to be working with. The Carolina Panthers participated in a training camp that was extremely high in tempo. But the former Baylor man was far from pleased with what he saw from his roster during a game-type practice at Bank of America Stadium on Friday.

This has left even more uncertainty surrounding the Panthers and their chances during the 2020 season. Expectations are relatively low as it is regarding their chances of making any sort of impression and they have a huge task on their hands to bring everything together in such a short space of time.

Rhule will know what sort of task is awaiting his squad in the coming months. He has gone into this role with his eyes wide open and although his record of building up struggling college programs is exceptional, this doesn’t happen in the first year of his tenure.

Let’s take a look at some of the big takeaways from the Panthers’ first unofficial depth chart of the season.
