Projecting Panthers starters
By Pat Yasinskas
The NFL draft is over and the Carolina Panthers have added at least one new starter.
That’s linebacker Luke Kuechly, who was drafted with the No. 9 overall pick. It just remains to be seen if he’ll start in the middle or on the outside.
Let’s take a look at Carolina’s projected depth chart as I see it at the moment.
- MLB Jon Beason or Kuechly (one of them will move outside)
- P Brad Mortman (at least one rookie besides Kuechly will play a lot)
- PR Joe Adams (the rookie also could get some time as the slot receiver)
