Carolina Panthers must decide on the 53-man roster

This is for a little later on in the process. But it is arguably the most important remaining factor for the Carolina Panthers in their pursuit of better luck in 2022.

There is a great deal of individual talent and improved depth within certain positional groups. So what final outcomes Scott Fitterer and others within the organization make will be of critical importance before competitive games get underway.

Selecting the final 53-man roster takes constant performance assessment and valued opinions from coaches who are working with these players every day. Fitterer is renowned for churning over the lower-end of the depth chart considerably during the offseason, getting a look at as many players as possible before settling.

Then, of course, there is the possibility of someone that was waived elsewhere coming on board if the Panthers feel like it can help.

Having competition for places is proven to maximize productivity in practice and on the field. Only a handful are truly guaranteed starting jobs no matter what in 2022, which only heightens anticipation for training camp and the battles it will bring between teammates.
