The NFL draft will help the Carolina Panthers fill in major needs and add depth to the roster. Offensively, the team looks unimpressive, especially on the line and at wide receiver. The current make-up of the defense offers a reason for optimism, but the offense will need to be counted on to put points on the board.
Carolina has a good mix of experienced veterans and talented young players who have three or less years in the league. The question is whether or not the current depth chart will be enough to defend the Panthers' division title.
It's unlikely the players on the roster now can get the job done.
However, before the draft starts, it's worth taking a look at the depth chart and analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each position. The most pressing needs of the team will feature a player to be determined (TBD) among the current veterans on the roster.
