4. Carolina Panthers
What was the craziest part of the draft for Matt Rhule and the Carolina Panthers? Without a doubt, it was the fact that Carolina used all seven picks on the defensive side of the football, which is obviously fine as long as team doesn’t struggle on offense.
In each of the last two seasons, the Panthers appeared to be heading towards the playoffs based off the first two months of action before collapsing in November and December, which is part of the reason behind the firing of Ron Rivera.
After seeing all of the success Rhule had at the collegiate level helping Temple and Baylor turn things around, the hope is the results will be the same in Carolina for the 2020 season.
While the Panthers certainly came up big in free agency with the signing of Robby Anderson, there are still a few questions in regards to the depth at wide receiver along with the potential trade rumors surrounding Curtis Samuel.
If Carolina were to move on from Samuel, this could open up a spot for another wideout, and even though Arcega-Whiteside may not seem like the best option to work, this could be a scenario in which the Panthers have nothing to lose.
