An Early 2011 Panthers Depth Chart: Defense

I saw Joe Person put up a depth chart for both sides of the ball so I was thinking I would do the same. I'm going to start with defense since I think Person had some errors in his. In particular he had rookie DT's Terrell McClain playing the same position. I'm sure you've seen James recent post on DT Sione Fua where I think he correctly places McClain and Fua side by side.

In the interest of saving FP space let's review the line-up...after the jump...

DE  C. Johnson   G Hardy

DT  T McClain  A Neblett, Nick Hayden, C Irvin

NT Sione Fua E Johnson  T Duhart

DE T Brayton  E Brown, H Taylor

SLB J Anderson J Williams E Norwood

MLB  J. Beason D,. Conner J Senn

WLB T. Davis  N Harris L Wilson

CB C Gamble R McClain, RJ Stanford

CB Munnerlyn  B Hogan, CJ Wilson

SS C Godfrey  M Hudson

FS S Martin  J Pugh

I'm assuming CB Richard Marshall leaves in some fashion as both sides have indicated that is their desire. I've left off a few of the bubble guys that appear to have little chance of making the squad. 

So what do you think of this defensive roster going into camp? Where do we need to add a free agent? CB seems the obvious answer if you think the two rookie DTs will mature quickly. 

So what do you think?
