Introducing your 2012 Carolina Panthers...?

While the players take the night off, and I have no school or work today, I decided to try my hand at making a early 53 man roster. Roster/depth chart after the jump

Starter / 2nd / 3rd

QB: Cam Newton/ Derek Anderson/ Jimmy Clausen

RB: DeAngelo Williams & Jonathan Stewart/ Tauren Poole

FB: Mike Tolbert

WR1: Steve Smith/ Louis Murphy/ Joe Adams/ Jared Green

(I have 7 here as Jared Green has been impressing. He has even gotten Rivera to name him as a player who is standing out along with Nate Chandler)

WR2: Brandon Lafell/ David Gettis/ Kealoha Pilares

WR/TE: Lamont Bryant

(I was bit iffy on this one, but Bryant impressed throughout OTA's and rookie camp. He can play WR and TE, and has a rare combination of speed and size. It is highly unlikely that such a player will last on the Practice squad. And as he can play TE and WR and Barnidge isn't proven either I felt he will likely make the roster)

TE: Greg Olsen / Gary Barnidge

(As you are probably wondering, what about a blocking TE? With the addition of Mike Tolbert I think a TE being on the roster purely for his blocking skill becomes unnecessary.)

LT: Jordan Gross / Bruce Campbell

LG: Amini Silatolu/ Jeff Byers

C: Ryan Kalil (both Byers can play center in a pinch)

RG: Geoff Hangartner

RT: Byron Bell / Gary Williams

RDE: Charles Johnson/ Frank Alexander

LDE: Greg Hardy/ Thomas Keiser/ Antwan Applewhite (DE/OLB)

NT: Ron Edwards/ Sione Fua

UT: Terrel McClain/ Nate Chandler

(Nate Chandler has been shining in camp and Rivera has made a point to acknowledge it)

SLB: James Anderson/Jordan Senn/ Jason Williams

MLB: Jon Beason/Kenny Onatolu

WLB: Luke Kuechly/ Thomas Davis

LCB: Chris Gamble/ Brandon Hogan

RCB: Josh Norman/ Darius Butler

Nickle: Captain Munnerlyn

FS: Charles Godfrey/ Sherrod Martin

SS: Haruki Nakamura/ Reggie Smith

K: Justin Medlock

P: Brad Nortman

LS: JJ Jansen

Let me know what you think. Way off base? Close?
