Draft

Do not forget Cam Newton quarterback was shedding of his Most Valuable Player season last 2015. He led the team to a regular season mark of 15-1. However, Newton had the worst season in terms of percentage of completion and also took one step back. This off-season, he went to a surgery regarding his shoulder. Everyone is hoping that we will come back this year completely recovered.

The Panthers is hoping that last year was just a minor step back and the team could come back to the big play picture. The Panthers used the National Football League to obtain several talented offensive players who can have a quick impact and take off few of the pressure of Cam Newton.

New Players

Christian McCaffrey reaches from Stanford as an elusive and shifty player with huge skills in ball passing. Also, the team added a slot for Curtis Samuel, a receiver in Ohio State. He is anticipated to take Ted Ginn Jr.’s place and be an added threat in the field.

The team spent a lot of money at Matt Kalil to secure the blind side of Newton on the offensive line. They also landed Western Michigan’s Taylor Moton.

Other players for offense include tight end Greg Olsen, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, and running back Jonathan Stewart.
