2018 Expansion Draft - Panthers


Recommended Posts

Imagine a new team is being ushered into the league. Every team has to pick 5 players from its roster. Designated players will be pooled (32 teams, 5 players each for a total of 160 players) and be made available to the new team via the Expansion Draft. From the total pool (and current list of Free Agents), the new franchise will pick (or “draft”) a full 53-player roster for the 2018-19 season.

Typically, teams offer up players they’re actively looking to get rid of (declining performance, age, salary). 

 

Designation Rules:

No kickers and punters.

No players set to become free agents.

No players who just spent an entire year on injured reserve.

Only one player with 10 or more years of experience.

 

That being said... What 5 players would you offer up for the 2018-19 season? Why?

The bolded are somewhat surprising. I know Kalil is pretty meh but is there no hope of him turning around and being at least average?

Also, Butler seems like a box of untapped potential. What gives?

Matt Kalil is a combination of bad contract, average play, and some injury concerns.

Butler is the guy I'd imagine would be most likely to be picked up if there were an expansion draft. I think he's a solid player, but for whatever reason he just hasn't worked out here. This could've been the year for him to shine with Star leaving, but it seems like he won't get much of a shot with the signing of Dontari Poe.

For what its worth, this would be a pretty unfortunate expansion timing for the Panthers, since we cut Jonathan Stewart and Kurt Coleman in the offseason, both of whom would've been easy choices for this.
