Although they had an early playoff exit, the Carolina Panthers turned in an extremely promising season in reaching the postseason after a 1-3 start.
The Panthers were one of the most feared teams in the league on defense and had an offense that was capable of exploding from week after week. While the team definitely had its bright spots, it also had some players who obviously have improvements to make.
Some of the Panthers need to become overall better players while others have potential that they need to realize. There are some positions on this roster that need a lot of work. They may get addressed in April's upcoming draft.
Carolina has a great team, but there are certainly players who need to step up next season.
