Carolina Panthers Depth Chart 2021 Carolina Panthers Depth Chart

0-0, T-1st NFC South

vs NYJ

5:00 pm GMT , 9/12

Carolina made a change at quarterback for the next few seasons bringing in Teddy Bridgewater to be the starting quarterback. He will have an excellent receiving core to throw to with D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and Curtis Samuel. Anderson is the new name added to the depth chart for Carolina. This gives them another deep threat, but also crowds things up a bit for targets. A long time Panther, Greg Olsen, is no longer with the team and this gives way to Ian Thomas to finally get some targets as he has been lower on the pecking order since being drafted.

Carolina Panthers Depth Chart FAQ

The Panthers have loaded up on the offensive side with plenty of young talent, and Christian McCaffrey is the more notable name here. However, Carolina's receiving core got a bit deeper this offseason as they brought in Robby Anderson to accompany Curtis Samuel and DJ Moore. With Greg Olsen in Seattle, Ian Thomas has been waiting for a starting role, which will happen this season. Defensively this team needed a lot of work, and the draft was where they hammered defensive picks. While it likely won't show this season, there is plenty of upside for the next few years.

What Is The Weakest Part Of Carolina’s Depth Chart?

Is Teddy Bridgewater The Starting Quarterback?

Teddy Bridgewater has been an on and off again starter in his career, but his move to Carolina will make him the full-time starter. He has been backing up Drew Brees and failed to get back to being a starter after the injury in Minnesota.
