    Brenton Bersin - WR - Panthers

    With Kelvin Benjamin nursing a bruised left knee, third-year UDFA Brenton Bersin is running with the Panthers' first-team offense.

    Bersin and Jerricho Cotchery have been the outside receivers, with Jason Avant in the slot. Bersin appears to have leapfrogged Marvin McNutt, Tavarres King, and Tiquan Underwood on the depth chart. A Wofford alum, 24-year-old Bersin stands 6-foot-3, 210 with modest 4.60 speed and a 35-inch vertical. Put simply, the Panthers need their top receivers to stay healthy this season.

    Nice how they dismiss Bersin's progress. They need their "top" receivers to stay healthy so that this cracka doesn't see the field. A "modest 4.60 speed" is faster than half of the starting receivers in the league.

    Exactly if he was darker a receiver that size would automatically get looks as a starter or lock for the team but good for Bersin he's getting looks because he's earned it. Other picks the Panthers have used on higher sought after picks with more upside have underachieved!

    White special teams demon Colin Jones got a chance to play safety against the Saints. He responded with 5 tackles and a sack.

    Hopefully, he'll get more opportunities.
