Panthers 2021 Season Preview
Looking for 2021 Carolina Panthers Predictions? The Panthers will look to return to a point where they can contend for this division and they will be hoping the signing of Sam Darnold from the New York Jets and the return of Christian McCaffrey from a brutal injury can be the catalyst to get this team back where they need to be.

- QB Sam Darnold
- CB Jaycee Horn
- CB A.J. Bouye
The biggest addition for this team this past offseason is no doubt Sam Darnold, as they were able to sign the Jets former 3rd overall pick after failing to get Deshaun Jackson. That might turn out to be a good thing for the Panthers, as Darnold is much cheaper and has a lot of room for improvement, and it is tough to believe he won’t improve as seemingly every player who leaves Adam Gase’s system seems to improve in a big way.
Darnold now has far better weapons then he ever had in New York and more importantly he will have an offensive line who likely will not rank in the bottom 5 of the entire league which is where the Jets O-line almost always ranked.
Cornerback Jaycee Horn was a bit of a reach in many people’s opinion, but he is a great prospect and he really should be able to make an immediate impact on the back-end for this Carolina Panthers defense.
A.J. Bouye is another big pick up for this Panthers defense and he is a guy who not only can play at an elite level, but can also be a great locker room guy who can lead this defense to do some special things.
- QB Teddy Bridgewater
- WR Curtis Samuel
Teddy Bridgewater was serviceable for the Panthers like he usually is, and although he played well at times he clearly was never going to be the future for the Panthers, so although he is booked here as a key loss I think the Panthers have found a more then suitable replacement.
Curtis Samuel has also been a real nice WR2 behind Moore for awhile now, but they have moved on from him and with his departure they lose out on 851 yards and 3 touchdowns which I think can be made up for given the guys they have brought in.
2021 Carolina Panthers Predictions: Offseason Analysis
I think the Panthers can be decent this year, and that is mostly because I have faith in Sam Darnold to take a big step forward now that he does not need to deal with the Jets offensive line anymore and he doesn’t have to deal with Adam Gase either.
The Panthers have also made some seriously important moves for their secondary bringing in Bouye and Horn, so they should have a secondary that ranks in the top half of the league and given the wide receivers they have to go against in the NFC South, that is good news for Panthers fans.
2021 Carolina Panthers Win Total Prediction:
As previously stated, Sam Darnold, in my opinion, takes a huge step forward this year and helps lead this team towards at least a respectable record, which I think they get here in 2021.
