Panthers release initial 2022 depth chart




 

As mundane as they've been under head coach Matt Rhule, the Carolina Panthers have themselves quite a few intriguing training camp battles on their hands this summer.

Can Sam Darnold hold off newcomer Baker Mayfield under center?

Will Ikem Ekwonu secure the blindside over Brady Christensen?

Plus, how will the rest of that offensive line-as well as the receivers behind starters DJ Moore and Robbie Anderson-pan out?

Well, the team released their first depth chart of the 2022 season on Tuesday evening-in an initial step that would've normally given us some hints towards those questions. And, uh, it didn't really give us much . . .

Headlined by shared spaces at three different positions-quarterback, center and backup running back-the offensive depth chart leaves much to be desired at this point. The only sure takeaway, in fact, is that Rhule really wants his guys to "earn it."

That mindset, based firmly in the roots of competition, is one the Panthers' braintrust has preached all offseason long. Because if placing your prized rookie left tackle as a second-stringer and your investment of a rookie quarterback as a fourth-stringer doesn't scream "EARN IT," then maybe this does . . .

Hey, if nothing else, at least their messaging is consistent this time around.
