Panthers 2018 season opener countdown: 58 days to go We are 58 days away from the beginning of the Carolina Panthers 2018 season. That means today we take a closer look at linebacker Thomas Davis.Thomas Davis
, LinebackerBioHeight: 6’1”Weight: 235 lbsAge: 35College: GeorgiaNFL Experience: 14 yearsThomas Davis has been with the Panthers since they drafted him with the No. 14 pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. Since entering the league, he has been a three
-time Pro Bowler (2015-2017), First-Team All Pro (2015), Second-Team All Pro (2013), and the Walter Payton Man of the Year (2014).Needless to say, Davis is one of the best linebackers in the NFL. This is especially true when you consider that he’s the only player in the history of the league to recover from three ACL injuries and not only continue his career, but get better. He is the physical embodiment of the ‘Keep Pounding’ slogan that was coined by former Panthers linebacker Sam Mills, and is widely considered as one of the best representatives of the Panthers on and off the field.Davis made waves back in January when he stated that 2018 would be his last season, but later said he was ‘very open to playing beyond 2018’ after he announced that he was suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the league’s PED policy.The one benefit for the Panthers regarding Davis’ suspension is that they have a more than capable replacement in Shaq Thompson, and they’ll also have a less worn down Thomas Davis when he’s eligible to return to action in Week 6*. It’s unclear if Thompson will continue to be the starter when Davis returns, but at the very least the Panthers will have a solid rotation between the two players.While 2018 may not be the last year for Davis in the NFL, it could be the last year for him in Carolina, provided the Panthers don’t give him a contract extension. If this is indeed his last ride with the Panthers, hopefully they can send him out on top with a Super Bowl victory, as he’s certainly someone who deserves it.*- Davis is suspended for four games, not four weeks. Since the Panthers have a bye in Week 4, they won’t play their fourth game until Week 5.Information from Wikipedia contributed to this storyMocking the Depth: Panthers 2018 defensive roster projection While the offense is pretty close to set in stone, there’s a bit more to worry about with the defense. Let us break down what the roster could look like at this point in 3 weeks.Defensive LineStarters: Wes Horton
, Dontari Poe, Kawann Short, Mario AddisonDepth: Julius Peppers, DaeShon Hall, Marquise Haynes, Kyle Love, Vernon ButlerWes Horton and Julius Peppers will likely be co-starters, with Hall and Haynes coming in as rotational guys. Short and Poe should hold down most of the starting snaps, however I’d like to see Butler more involved as a pass rusher. We could see a lot of Short and Butler in passing situations. While the team hasn’t made a top heavy investment at defensive end, both Hall and Haynes should make it as former draft picks. Haynes should be the primary reliever for Addison as a speed rusher.LinebackerStarters: Thomas Davis, Luke Kuechly, Shaq ThompsonDepth: David Mayo, Jermaine Carter, Ben Jacobs, Andre SmithWith Davis out 4 weeks, both David Mayo and Jermaine Carter could see a decent amount of time as the 3rd linebacker. Carter has really impressed this preseason. Ben Jacobs brings proven veteran presence and special teams ability, and the team spent a draft pick on Smith. It is possible Jared Norris beats him out for a spot here, however. Those last two linebacker spots are certainly still fluid.CornerbackStarters: James Bradberry
, Donte JacksonDepth: Captain Munnerlyn, Kevon Seymour, Corn ElderWhile many fans have been clamoring for Lorenzo Doss, I think Seymour sticks even if he gets beat out by Jackson (which at this point, I believe Jackson is in the drivers seat to start). Captain Munnerlyn still holds down that nickel spot, so it appears the 5th spot would be up for grabs. I think Elder ends up keeping it, though he’s got Doss and Cole Luke breathing down his neck there. Elder flashed some good play in his first week, and I want to see more of him in the next three weeks. If a guy like Doss is going to make it, he will really need to shine.SafetyStarters: Mike Adams, Da’Norris SearcyDepth: Colin Jones, Rashaan GauldenI really don’t see any of this changing from now to week one. Adams and Searcy are locked in as the starters. Gaulden could end up seeing rotational play early on, as he’s impressed during the offseason. But with Donte Jackson at corner they have an emergency safety option, and Colin Jones simply brings more to the table than the rest of the guys. We could see Demetrious Cox as a practice squad signee, but I don’t think he beats out Jones here. Despite this idea that Jones isn’t worth it, he has a lot of experience in the scheme. His ability to play nickel CB in a pinch coupled with his special teams prowess makes him more valuable than the others trying to make the roster.I could see the Panthers making a move in the secondary, but overall I think your starting 11 are pretty set. However, feel free to share your thoughts.
