Which Carolina Panthers players are being extremely underrated ahead of the team’s upcoming training camp at Wofford College? 

It’s going to be a hot and heavy atmosphere in Spartanburg when the Carolina Panthers visit once again for their annual training camp. This is arguably one of the most fascinating in recent memory after more huge changes by the organization during the offseason, which also included the acquisition of quarterback Baker Mayfield from the Cleveland Browns.

Carolina’s revamped coaching staff will look to stamp their mark throughout an intense few weeks before a crucial season opener against the Browns at Bank of America Stadium. How this group comes together will play a significant role in whatever success comes the team’s way and there is no margin for error whatsoever after three consecutive five-win seasons.

At least on paper, the Panthers‘ roster looks more balanced than the one which ended the 2021 campaign in a disappointing fashion. Carolina also has improved depth across multiple key positional groups, which could be a real asset during the grueling 17-game season.

Without further ado, here are four Panthers players who are being extremely underrated ahead of training camp.

Signing Bradley Bozeman in free agency from the Baltimore Ravens could be among the biggest steals anywhere in the league. His production last season was of a high standard and to get such a proven performer with a cap hit of just $2.8 million was a significant coup for the Carolina Panthers if expectations are reached.

Bozeman has made a keen point to embrace the culture in the Carolinas and discover more about integral elements of the franchise such as its ‘Keep Pounding’ mantra. More importantly, the Alabama product represents a significant upgrade on anything the Panthers had at the center spot last time around.

Others generated more headlines, and with good reason. But Bozeman has the scope to go from underrated to among the NFL’s best at the position with further progress under offensive line coach James Campen in training camp.
