The Carolina Panthers will be looking to improve on a rather promising 2013 campaign when they take the field in the Fall. Part of their rise to the top last season was the growth of their players both individually and as a unit.
When they begin their quest for their second consecutive NFC South title, the Panthers will depend on a few of their younger players to take the necessary steps forward and contribute even more to the team's production.
A.J Klein showed a boatload of potential last season and could prove himself even more now that he will be at the top of the depth chart.
Robert Lester will also be moving up the depth chart now that Quintin Mikell is a free agent, and he will have a chance to show his skills as a starting safety in this league. He had a promising year in 2013, and it will be interesting to see how he builds upon that going forward.
There are many players with a chance to explode in 2014, and any one of these guys could be a headliner next season.
