A young, up-and-coming club, the Carolina Panthers showcased some serious promise in 2011 for the upcoming season.
Five of the team’s eight defeats came by eight points or less. The offense finished just outside of the top dozen in passing and was seventh in yards (389.8 YPG), fifth in scoring (25.4 PPG) and third in rushing (150.5 YPG).
Nevertheless, the defense was—simply put—atrocious, and by far the club’s biggest weakness.
The Panthers were 24th or worse across the board in total defense, points allowed, against the run and against the pass.
Expect Carolina to address the entire defense in the upcoming draft, but also add more prowess to its offense. Here’s our first seven-round 2012 NFL mock draft on the Panthers.
