Top 50 Carolina Panthers

Added as an Expansion team in 1995, the Carolina Panthers took little time to become good as they would make the NFC Conference Finals in their second season of existence.  Competing in the NFC South, the Panthers have not yet won the Super Bowl, but they have won the NFC twice (2003 & 2015) so it is not like there has not been success for the Charlotte based franchise.


Note: Football lists are based on an amalgamation of tenure, traditional statistics, advanced statistics, playoff statistics and post-season accolades.

This list is active up until the end of the 2020 Season.
A 3rd Round Pick from Iowa in 2008, Charles Godfrey started at Free Safety as a rookie and would move to Strong Safety in his third season.  He would play there for three more seasons for the Panthers as a starter, but injuries took him out of action for most of 2013, and he would be released shortly after that. …
With all due respect to Billy Cundiff, we are guessing that the Washington Redskins wish they never released Graham Gano in 2012 in favor of him.
Greg Hardy arrived in Carolina as a 6th Round Pick from Ole Miss, and in his second season in the NFL he would secure a role as the team's starting Defensive End.  Proving to be an excellent pass rusher, Hardy would record 34 Sacks and 44 Tackles for Loss with his best season coming in 2013.  That year he was…
From Troy University, Mario Addison bounced around with Chicago, Indianapolis, and Washington before finding a home with the Carolina Panthers late in the 2012 season.  From 2013 to 2016, Addison would only start three games but we would be used as a pass rush specialist and would record 9.5 Quarterback Sacks in 2016.  Following that year, he would become a…
Geoff Hangartner was drafted in the 5th Round from Texas A&M in 2005, and he would play in various places on the O-Line for four seasons before signing with the Buffalo Bills in 2009.  The Panthers would sign him again where he would stabilize the Right Guard position for two seasons before being released after the third when he became…
Undrafted in 2011 from New Mexico, Byron Bell was an excellent pickup for the Carolina Panthers.  Bell would become the starting Right Tackle for the team early in his rookie season, and he would hold that spot for three seasons before switching to Left Tackle in his fourth year, which would be his last in Carolina as he would sign…
A Pro Bowl Selection with the Denver Broncos in 1989, Kragen would sign with the Carolina Panthers for their inaugural season in 1995 when he was in his early 30s.  The Panthers would be good quickly, appearing in the NFC Championship Game in 1996 and Kragen was part of that team’s success.  Kragen would retire after the 1997 season and…

Shaq Thompson has played six years to date for the Carolina Panthers and the former First Rounder from Washington would become a starter during his rookie season. Playing at Left Linebacker, Thompson became a tackling monster in 2019, where he had his first three-digit tackling year.  Thompson hit that mark again in 2020 with what is currently a career-high 114 Combined…
Ken Lucas played at Right Cornerback for the Carolina Panthers from 2005 to 2008.  Lucas played for the Seattle Seahawks before and after that stint, but as a Panther, he would record 13 Interceptions and 235 Tackles.  Lucas would also have a pair of picks in the post-season for Carolina.
D.J. Moore has only been in the National Football League for three seasons (all with the Carolina Panthers) and the Wide Receiver and to date he has had at least 1,000 Receiving Yards.  Moore is entering his fourth NFL year, and is well over 3,000 Yards from the air.
A 1993 Pro Bowler with the Los Angeles Rams, Sean Gilbert signed with the Panthers for the 1998 Season where he would assume the Right Defensive End slot and secured 6 Quarterback Sacks.  He bounced between that and Right Defensive Tackle over the following three seasons and would come off of the bench in 2002.  Overall he played 64 Games…
Born in Zaire, raised in Canada and schooled at the University of Michigan, Tim Biakabutuka took a unique path to become the first Zairian to enter the National Football League, which he did as the 8th Overall Pick in 1996.  While the Running Back did not live up to the expectations of a high 1st Rounder, this is a player…
