Team Needs

1. Quarterback
2. Running Back
3. Tight End

Enough playing around with trades for failed first round picks from other teams and XFL cast offs. This franchise needs to capitalize on the division freefalling and get their long-term answer under center.

Key FA: RB D’Onta Foreman, LB Cory Littleton, DL Matthew Ioannidis

Depth Chart Fantasy Impact

The Panthers addressed QB for the 3rd straight offseason, and still might not have an answer.

First came the Teddy Bridgewater signing; then last year’s Sam Darnold trade. This time, Carolina spent a 3rd-round pick on Ole Miss’ Matt Corral, selecting him as the 4th QB off the board. Corral spent 2 full seasons at the helm for the Rebels offense, topping 3,300 yards passing each time and throwing 49 TD passes vs. just 19 INTs. He’ll battle Darnold and veteran backup P.J. Walker for playing time – though rumors of a potential Baker Mayfield trade persist.

Carolina allowed RB Ameer Abdullah to leave in free agency after acquiring him in the middle of last season. The team signed D’Onta Foreman shortly after the market opened but did so for just $2 million on a 1-year pact. That likely leaves Foreman competing with 2021 rookie Chuba Hubbard for playing time behind Christian McCaffrey. Hubbard stepped in as the workhorse the 1st time McCaffrey went down last season but saw Abdullah cut into his opportunities the 2nd time – especially in the passing game.

The WR corps returns the top 3 from last year, though Panthers coaches surely would like Terrace Marshall to perform more like one of the team’s top 3 wideouts this time around. The former 2nd-round pick collected just 30 targets as a rookie, tying for 7th on the team. He’ll join lead wideout D.J. Moore and Robbie Anderson, who endured a rough 2nd year in Carolina.

The Panthers re-signed TE Ian Thomas ahead of free agency. They likely view him as primarily a blocker, though, after Thomas trailed 2021 rookie TE Tommy Tremble by 5 targets.

The O-line picked up OT Ikem Ekwonu with the 6th pick in the draft. Carolina went the free-agent route to import G Austin Corbett from Cleveland with a sizable 3-year deal, plus C Bradley Bozeman on a small 1-year deal. The summer could feature some competition at center and left guard.
