The Panthers Game 1 Depth Chart

Grant Halverson

Here is the current Panthers depth chart barring any significant signings this week, which is expected.More than likely any players picked up off the waiver wire will be depth players.

Starting with the offense I find it interesting that that newly signed Travelle Wharton is listed as the back-up at LG meaning Amini Silatolu has not been benched though he probably deserves it. Since he is out with injury we don't need to debate it as Wharton will start against the Seahawks.


POS        FIRST                                     SECOND                               THIRD                        OTHER

WR         Steve Smith                        Armanti Edwards

LT            Jordan Gross                      Nate Chandler

LG           Amini Silatolu                     Travelle Wharton

C             Ryan Kalil                             Jeff Byers Brian Folkerts

RG          Garry Williams Chris Scott

RT           Byron Bell                            Garry Williams

TE           Greg Olsen                         Ben Hartsock Richie Brockel         Brandon Williams

WR         Brandon LaFell                  Domenik Hixon Ted Ginn

QB          Cam Newton                     Derek Anderson

FB           Mike Tolbert                      Richie Brockel

RB           DeAngelo Williams          Kenjon Barner Armond Smith

Moving to the defense I find a couple things interesting. First that CB Melvin White is 4th at RCB rather than simply listing him at #3 LCB to make the chart balanced. I wonder if there is some nuance about the two positions that makes him only suited for one side.

Or could it be White will be moved to SS, since currently the Panthers only list Mike Mitchell at the position with the three other safeties listed at FS? Though many have speculated that is the plan we have not seen any indicators to that effect from the Panthers.


POS        FIRST                                     SECOND                               THIRD                                    OTHER

LDE         Charles Johnson               Frank Alexander

DT           Dwan Edwards                  Kawann Short

RCB        Captain Munnerlyn         Josh Norman D.J. Moore Melvin White

SS           Mike Mitchell

FS           Charles Godfrey                      Haruki Nakamura Colin Jones

Finally on special teams we don't have any real surprises.
