    QB - Taylor Heinicke
    RB - Christian McCaffrey
    TE - Greg Olsen
    T - none with Matt Kalil injured
    G - Brendan Mahon, Greg van Roten
    C - Ryan Kalil, Tyler Larson

    LB - Luke Kuechly, David Mayo, Ben Jacobs, Jared Norris
    S - Colin Jones

    PK - Graham Gano
    P - Michael Palardy
    LS - J. J. Jansen

    Matt Kalil is the only White player on IR. QBs Connor Cook and Kyle Allen, G Taylor Hearn, and TE Jason Vander Laan are on the practice squad.

    David Mayo is starting because Thomas Davis is suspended. However this should be Davis's final season and Mayo (or perhaps Jacobs) may be auditioning to replace Davis for good next year.

    Matt Kalil won't be starting at tackle on the same line with his brother, so that gives Carolina five White starters. Colin Jones should have been a starter but was permanently placed in the WSTD/backup role for his entire career.

    The four White linebackers are a plus, as of course are all-world players Kuechly and Olsen, and hopefully Christian McCaffrey is about to become one. Head coach Ron Rivera has promised to use McCaffrey heavily this season, but we'll see if that's the case or not.

    A lot of CFers like the Panthers because of McCaffrey, Kuechly and Olsen, but their presence is the only thing that prevents Carolina from having a worse grade.

    Number of White starters: 5

    Number of White players on 53 man roster: 15

    Grade: D
