What are the weakest positions on the Carolina Panthers heading into a crucial training camp and 2022 season for the organization?

The Carolina Panthers are now gearing up for a pivotal training camp ahead of the 2022 season. Things have been encouraging overall during the recruitment phase, but whether this comes with the necessary progression when competitive action begins is another matter entirely.

There appears to be plenty of talent across the roster. The Panthers should see a significant upgrade on the offensive line and the secondary also looks like a force to be reckoned with thanks to some dynamic playmakers and the return of defensive backs coach Steve Wilks.

With that being said, one or two problem areas still require potential upgrades. Carolina has the cap space to make this happen, but it also depends on how certain players acquit themselves in camp and over the preseason.

Looking at the depth chart as it stands, here are the three weakest positions on Carolina’s roster heading into 2022.

The Carolina Panthers decided to move forward with their same starting tight end options in the hope new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo can bring the best out of Ian Thomas and Tommy Tremble. Both individuals have the athletic traits to make strides, but one couldn’t say it was a guarantee by any stretch of the imagination.

McAdoo’s system requires a lot from tight ends in the passing game. Thomas and Tremble haven’t been given this sort of responsibility for some time, so it will be interesting to see how each copes with additional demands.

There is nothing really outside of this duo to inspire confidence. So things are hanging in the balance at a position that’s not featured much since Greg Olsen left in 2020 free agency for the Seattle Seahawks.
