Targeting Carolina's wide receivers

February, 3, 2009

Posted by's Pat Yasinskas

We'll continue our team-by-team look at how wide receivers performed (in terms of drops and how frequently they were targeted) with the Carolina Panthers -- also known as Steve Smith, Muhsin Muhammad and nobody else.

Player Targets Catches Drops % Caught % First Down
D.J. Hackett 28 13 0 46.4 25.0
Dwayne Jarrett 19 10 1 52.6 47.4
Muhsin Muhammad 108 65 8 60.2 42.6
Steve Smith 129 78 6 60.5 45.7

Notes: Despite missing the first two games due to a suspension, Smith finished tied for 16th in the league in the number of times he was targeted. Smith tied for 12th in the league in yards after the catch with 439 and led all NFC South receivers in that category.
