5 Biggest Needs the Carolina Panthers Have Yet to Address This Offseason

The second week of the NFL free-agency period is drawing to a close and the Carolina Panthers still have plenty of needs to fill prior to the draft in May.  

While the team did retain defensive end Greg Hardy by using the franchise tag, Carolina has been relatively quiet during the month of March. Aside from re-signing some minor free agents, the only notable signing has been that of former New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper.

Other than that, the Panthers offseason has been defined as one in which many of their notable players from last year have departed for other teams.  

It hasn't helped matters that high-profile free agents like Hakeem Nicks and James Jones decided to sign elsewhere, thus leaving a receiver depleted team in a very tight spot with the market thinning everyday.  While bolstering the wide receiver spot has been the focal point this offseason, Carolina still has needs at offensive tackle, cornerback and kick returner.  

The next few slides will examine the biggest needs that the Panthers have yet to address this offseason.
