NFL CB Tandem Rankings: Panthers Still Get No Respect

I understand this topic has been discussed ad nauseam here on CSR but I'm still inclined to report on this ranking because of how surprisingly low the Panthers are ranked. I mean, I get that Captain Munnerlyn doesn't impose fear on opposing WRs at the moment but you would think Chris Gamble would account for a ranking higher than 28th:

28. Carolina Panthers

Best Player: Chris Gamble

Gamble deserves more credit than he received for his play last year, considering he had almost no help from the other 10 players on the field with him. Captain Munnerlyn is penciled in as the other starting corner, but works best with limited exposure. Fourth-round pick Josh Norman, a Mike Mayock endorsed player, generated buzz in spring practices that he could press for a starting role this year. Cast off by the Patriots, Darius Butler made six starts last year. Brandon Hogan is still recovering from a torn ACL.

So I'm guessing Van Bibber wants to see the youth actually perform on the field before giving them any credit. I'm okay with that but how in the world are the Patriots (24th) and Redskins (26th) ranked higher? Chris Gamble has to be the most under rated player in the NFL right now. I just don't get it.
