Robby Anderson must cut out individual errors

Although there was almost no consistent quarterback distribution for Robby Anderson to take advantage of in 2021, this did not stop D.J. Moore from going over 1,000 receiving yards for the third-straight campaign.

One of the main complications regarding Anderson’s production – especially early in the season – was dropping the football. His catch success rate dropped from 69.9 percent in 2020 to just 48.2% last time around, which was the lowest of his professional career by a considerable margin, and has to get better when competitive action begins once again.

Anderson was credited with seven drops, which is something that also needs to improve ahead of a crucial season for the player and the Carolina Panthers. Much will also depend on just who is slinging the football, with Sam Darnold still on the books and the team also securing the services of third-round pick Matt Corral out of Ole Miss.

The route-running remains polished and Anderson did receive 110 targets, which should have been more than enough to make more of an impression.

Whether the wideout was unmotivated playing with Darnold again is debatable. But the Panthers expected much better after paying the receiver handsomely as a result of his first-year efforts.
