Which members of the Carolina Panthers roster are set to turn heads at the team’s upcoming training camp in 2021?

Whether the Carolina Panthers roster has enough in the way of quality to make some serious noise in 2021 has yet to be determined. Everything looks good on paper, but this counts for absolutely nothing if things cannot come together in a competitive environment.

Putting in the hard work at training camp is the only way the Panthers can improve next time around. They didn’t get the benefit of a normal offseason program in 2020 and it’s essential the team makes the most out of more familiar preparations with a view to getting off on the right foot.

Camp is always a fun time of year. Fans returning to Wofford College is only going to enhance the atmosphere of the occasion, which could lead to some players putting in that extra bit of effort to entertain those in attendance.

With this in mind, here are five Panthers players who’ll no double turn plenty of heads throughout a hugely important camp for Carolina.

Dan Arnold – TE

There is an enormous sense of anticipation about what Dan Arnold can bring to the Carolina Panthers roster in 2021. The tight end position produced little in the immediate aftermath of Greg Olsen’s departure and much more is going to be needed if the team wants to realistically enter the postseason discussion sooner rather than later.

Arnold gained 438 receiving yards and four touchdowns from just 31 receptions for the Arizona Cardinals last season. His presence in the red zone could make a huge difference in Carolina and there should be plenty of space for the player to work considering the options elsewhere.

The former Wisconsin–Platteville standout took the eye during OTAs, which only heightens expectations about what Arnold could potentially contribute when it matters most.

This is a solid foundation from which to build, which should continue throughout training camp as Arnold looks to hit the ground running.
