The Panthers finished the 2017 season second in the NFC South with an identical 11-5 record as the division winning Saints, but Carolina looks far more likely to see a drop in wins this year. Their point differential of 36 points made them just one of two teams to finish with double-digit wins and a point differential south of 75 points. This year's coaching staff will have new faces at offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator. The Panthers wisely fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula, but replacement Norv Turner is a thoroughly uninspiring hire as his replacement. Their defensive coordinator last year, Steve Wilks, was hired as Bruce Arians' replacement at head coach for the Cardinals. Eric Washington was promoted from defensive line coach to fill Wilks' vacancy, and defensive-minded head coach Ron Rivera should help Washington make the transition to defensive coordinator for the first time in his coaching career. Still, the coaching overturn is significant.

Unleash the Offense

Carolina addressed one major personnel need right away in this year's NFL Draft. With the 24th pick in the first round, they selected wide receiver D.J. Moore. The former Maryland Terp has the speed to get behind defenses, but he also has good size for the position. He'll add a different dimension at wideout than big-target Devin Funchess and tight end Greg Olsen, and he'll join trade acquisition Torrey Smith as a field stretcher. At this point, Cam Newton looks like he is who he is. He's an inaccurate passer who is turnover prone with a big arm, but he partially offsets his passing shortcomings with his one-of-a-kind running skills. Turner is unlikely to be the coordinator to coax more out of Cam, but Moore immediately making an impact would help him as a passer.

Christian McCaffrey is also a valuable part of the passing attack and offense in general. He underwhelmed as a runner in his rookie season, but he led the team in targets and receptions and was an integral part of the offense even if in a less conventional way for a lead back. He'll be complemented in the backfield this year by a major upgrade from Jonathan Stewart. C.J. Anderson joined the team after being cut by Denver, and he's coming off of a career year. He'll provide a much different look in the backfield from McCaffrey as a more valuable runner. The defense should remain the superior unit for the Panthers, but they'll be without a key defender early in the season. Linebacker Thomas Davis is suspended for the first four games of the year for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Fellow starting linebackers Luke Kuechly and Shaq Thompson will be tasked with picking up the slack in Davis' absence, but they are an excellent duo. The front four on the starting defensive line, with the addition of Dontari Poe, is one of the best in the NFL, and the secondary received some fresh blood with pick 23 in the second round, cornerback Donte Jackson, and pick 21 in the third round, safety Rashaan Gaulden, as well free agent addition Da'Norris Searcy at safety.
