Statistics as a Panther: 47 games, 41.5 sacks, 2 INT

Accolades: All-Pro (1996), Defensive player of the year (1996), 1990's All-Decade Team

- Though Greene only spent three seasons in Carolina (it could have been four if not for the spat with him over this professional wrestling gigs) Kevin Greene made the most of his time in Charlotte. A vital piece of the Panthers improbable 1996 NFC Championship run, Green amassed 14.5 sacks on the year from the outside linebacker position. What's more impressive is that his stats were actually more gaudy, but the NFL didn't track tackles at that time. 

 

Kris Jenkins, DT

Statistics as a Panther: 85 games, 215 tackles, 20.5 sacks

Accolades: Pro Bowl (2002, 2003, 2006), All-Pro (2002, 2003)

- Jenkins was arguably the Panthers most vital piece in defensive line dominance in the early 2000s. While Julius Peppers is credited for much of the line's success, really it was Jenkins' consistent penetration in the middle that made life easier for the DEs and terrible for opposing offenses. Though he had a rather unfortunate end to his tenure in Carolina, it's undoubtable that he was one of the greats.
