28. Carolina Panthers
Best Acquisition: S Reggie Smith (Free Agent)
Best Draft Pick: LB Luke Kuechly (No. 9 Overall)
Key Loss: LB Dan Connor (Cowboys)
Overall: Carolina's defensive needs weren't addressed in free agency or the draft. Kuechly was the only impact addition on the troublesome side of the ball, and the signing of free-agent running back Mike Tolbert was curious at best. The promising Panthers could have done better.
