Who were the best players to emerge from yet another dramatic season for the Carolina Panthers in 2022?
After a season of ups and downs, a coaching change, and a return to important football in December, the Carolina Panthers can go into 2023 with hope knowing they have standout talents everywhere on the roster.
The offseason is approaching with important decisions to be made. But some players stood out above the rest in 2022, and they deserve recognition for their impact.
What the immediate future holds for Carolina is unclear. Steve Wilks and others are in the frame to become head coach next season and beyond, with the potential for multiple college recruits and big free-agent signings also possible to get the Panthers into contention.
Before looking too far ahead, we ranked the 10 best Panthers players from another turbulent campaign in 2022.
Player No. 10
Bradley Bozeman – Carolina Panthers C
- 2 sacks allowed
- 4 penalties committed
- 65.0 Pro Football Focus grade
The top 10 starts with Bradley Bozeman. From the moment he stepped on the field in Week 7, his impact was immediately noticeable.
Bozeman’s elite run blocking helped pave the way for Chuba Hubbard and D’Onta Foreman to produce yards and move the Carolina Panthers down the field effectively. The big man also held his own in pass protection, solidifying the front of the pocket for whoever was under center to step into their throws without fear.
Despite some errors, Bozeman was a great addition and helped turn around the offensive line. He is not under contract in 2023, but general manager Scott Fitterer should find a way to re-sign him after how he performed.
