Jeremy Chinn – Carolina Panthers S

After coming off a great rookie season, the former Southern Illinois stud plans to keep up his great play. He can confuse a quarterback with his versatility and plug up the lanes on a running play. 

Simply put, Jeremy Chinn is the ultimate chess piece for the Carolina Panthers defense.

Chinn is the perfect player to face Zach Wilson Week 1. He can throw him off his game and help this defense tremendously.

Not only this, but Chinn can also help at the second level against a sneaky running back such as Tevin Coleman.

In the last seven matchups, Coleman averaged 74.7 scrimmage yards and scored six touchdowns going up against the Panthers as part of the Atlanta Falcons.

Stopping Coleman could be another task for Chinn. With his ability to play deep or in the box he will produce no matter where the do-it-all defender is on the field.

He knows what success feels like especially after his strong rookie season campaign. If we see the same Chinn from 2020, expect the Panthers’ defense to be spectacular.
