David Moore – Carolina Panthers WR

There has been a lot of hype surrounding Terrace Marshall Jr. after an outstanding start to training camp from the second-round pick. But the Carolina Panthers will still be relying on David Moore to come up with the goods as a key rotational piece next season.

The free-agent signing from the Seattle Seahawks has a quality skill set that is going to assist Carolina in the coming months. He has the speed to go deep and is a strong red-zone threat, which is an area of the field where the Panthers struggled to produce touchdowns in 2020.

Moore was a lesser-known figure in Seattle’s passing attack behind Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. Something that will continue on the Panthers thanks to the presence of D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and perhaps even Marshall ahead of him on the depth chart.

This should not detract from what a potentially crucial part of the offense Moore can become. Making his presence felt in the lead-up to Week 1 against the New York Jets should solidify the player’s claims for targets, with the former seventh-round pick also set to get plenty of chances to impress over the three preseason contests.

General manager Scott Fitterer might have a little input on how best to maximize Moore’s production. The pair worked together on the Seahawks and it’s clear Carolina’s new front office leader is a big fan.
