Panthers pre-camp depth chart

This wil change over the next three weeks. A young guy -- remember Josh Norman's four-interception day in Spartanburg last summer? -- will ascend. Someone will get hurt or underperform.

But here's one man's take on what the pre-camp depth chart will look like:


WR Steve Smith/Domenik Hixon

LT Jordan Gross/Bruce Campbell

LG Amini Silatolu/Justin Wells

C Ryan Kalil/Jeff Byers

RG Geoff Hangartner/Edmund Kugbila

RT Byron Bell/Garry Williams

TE Greg Olsen/Ben Hartsock

WR Brandon LaFell/Ted Ginn Jr.

QB Cam Newton/Derek Anderson

FB Mike Tolbert/Richie Brockel

RB DeAngelo Williams/Jonathan Stewart


DE Greg Hardy/Frank Alexander

DT Dwan Edwards/Kawann Short

DT Star Lotulelei/Colin Cole

DE Charles Johnson/Mario Addison

SLB Thomas Davis/A.J. Klein

MLB Luke Kuechly/Chase Blackburn

WLB Jon Beason/Jordan Senn

CB Josh Norman/Captain Munnerlyn

CB Josh Thomas/Drayton Florence

SS D.J. Campbell/Mike Mitchell

FS Charles Godfrey/Robert Lester


PK Graham Gano

P Brad Nortman

H Brad Nortman

PR Ted Ginn Jr.

KR Ted Ginn Jr.

LS J.J. Jansen

That secondary looks horrible. This masking the secondary will work perfectly making Rivera/gettleman smart. Or we will be torched on the weekly. Stay Tuned!!

Im not feeling the secondary either but I like our front 7....they can make our secondary better with there play! So Im not that worried about it.

secondary is gonna be way better than expected, ecspecially if they add Mikkel.
People need to slow down we had top defense last year and didnt look this good.

top 10 defense i meant

The defense will be as good as the secondary because that front 7 looks tough. It has pass-rushers and good tacklers.

It's time for Cam to show the rest of the league he belongs in the conversation of Pro Bowl QBs. If he has the season we all hope he has (and his talent says he should have), this is a playoff team.

Lester a FS or SS?

@ section524

Lester is a SS, i think he's just there to show that Nakamura and Jones aren't competing to start at safety while Lester will get a look at in camp

Brandon, Cam has already showed the league he is a Pro Bowl QB. I understand he has not put up a lot of wins as the starting QB, but he has no control over the play calling.

The play calling early last year with all the zone read crap is what did this team in. Cam has already broken several records and he's only in his third year.

Lets move TD back to the secondary. We could all finally get some shuteye then.

I love our defense until I get to the CB line. Ugh. I hope those guys outperform expectations this year, otherwise the team is going to get constantly burned deep.

Anyone remember that there was only one player you can name from the secondary that took us to the Superbowl? That year it was Mike Minter. These corners will develop.

Why do we continue to bring other teams castoffs in and dare to think they are the second coming? Do you think the other teams will turn loose their top talent? Not likely if they want to keep their job. Ted Ginn was available for a reason, and I hope someone on his former team made a huge mistake in turning him loose. I hope everyone out there will get a chance to say how wrong I am after Ted does his thing. I really do. Is he going to be another Lois Murphy or Joe Adams? I can't wait to find out. I bleed Panther black and blue as much as anyone but I don't think he is the answer to our receiving problems.

Armanti Edwards,if given the opportunity to play WR, will be a successful playmaker this season. Is Travelle Wharton, undercontract this season? It looks like we need another Offensive Lineman. Is Clausen still holding a spot on the team and why, if he is on the personel roster?
