The Carolina Panthers have several players currently battling for a spot on the final 53-man roster. Here we’ll rank the five most talented players on the Panthers’ roster bubble, including Joe Webb, Philly Brown and Brenton Bersin.
The rankings are based on the following criteria:
- The player must have enough talent and ability to be worthy of a roster spot on any NFL team, not just Carolina’s specifically.
- The player can’t just be a long-term stash—the sooner he can contribute the better.
- Younger players are preferred, as they have more upside and coaches are more willing to tolerate their mistakes.
Carolina found a couple of gems who were battling for roster spots in 2013—Robert Lester and Melvin White both made surprising contributions as undrafted rookies for last year’s NFC South champion.
Will that happen again this season? Let’s find out.
