The Panthers have a great defensive staff this season, and with all of their returning talent, the Panthers could surprise the NFL in 2011. 

Head Coach Ron Rivera is a defensive mastermind who has found success wherever he has coached. Now in Carolina, Rivera has brought in former Eagles Defensive Coordinator Sean McDermott, a protege of the late Jim Johnson. 

The list of great defensive coaches does not end there though. Ron Meeks, the team's Defensive Coordinator in 2010, has accepted a role as the Secondary Coach. Needless to say, there is a long list of successful coaches that will get the most out of a defense that ranked seventh in the NFL in yards per play lat season. 

Here's a peek into what to expect from the Panthers' defense in 2011.
