When the Panthers signed running back C.J. Anderson this offseason Julius Peppers Jersey , he seemed like a perfect complement to Christian McCaffrey.Instead, McCaffrey has become an every down player, so the Panthers let Anderson go Monday.Via the team’s official website, the Panthers released the former Broncos running back, who had over 1,000 yards last year.“When we signed C.J. in the spring he saw a bigger role than he has had DJ Moore Color Rush Jersey , and honestly, at the time so did we,” Panthers General Manager Marty Hurney said. “But Christian McCaffrey has taken so much of the offense and so much of the plays, we just made the decision that this was the best thing for all parties involved.”Anderson will have to pass through waivers before he can pick another team of his choosing, where there might be a bigger role.McCaffrey has played 96.35 percent of the Panthers snaps this year (554), while Anderson has logged just 9.39 percent (54 snaps). He has just 24 carries for 104 yards.Of course James Color Rush Bradberry Jersey , McCaffrey’s 1,018 yards from scrimmage makes it easy to justify, as long as he’s healthy. This selection comes courtesy of CBS Sports"The end is nigh, the draft approaches, and, as we while away our remaining hours Ian Thomas Jersey , let’s take a moment to recognize the one mock draft that might have scored a home run on this year’s Panthers’ draft class. That would be Ryan Wilson’s seven sound mock from last week for CBS Sports.Obviously, he probably got 99% of the projections wrong. That is just how this works. Even the Panthers home run that I mentioned is probably not even a single bit correct, but it does seem terrifyingly right. That’s because there is one pick that I can’t shake as the likeliest pick I have seen mocked to the Panthers all season. Let’s take a look at his first three selections.I’ve been on record multiple times this season stating the Panthers’ biggest need in 2019 is for an edge rusher. No matter how they arrange their front 7, they simply don’t have the quantity of skilled pass rushers on their roster required to compete in the NFL. So, of course they wait until the third round to address that. If pass rushing talent is need 1A then 1B is pass protection. We could all forgive the Panthers for taking a talented offensive tackle in the first round. It would then be totally reasonable for the value in the second round to favor a safety over an edge player. Hurney has to work with the players available and not the players we are all dreaming of, after all.That said Curtis Samuel Color Rush Jersey , it’s not great when your first, best attempt at addressing the edge of your defense is drafting a guy on the smaller side who played at a smaller school and who is known for not being able to set the edge in the running game. I’m not against drafting Oshane Ximines in general, and not even against drafting him in the third round. I worry because this whole mock draft — for all that it doesn’t have them taking a linebacker in the first round— seems very Panthers, and I worry because taking Ximenes won’t be enough to address the defensive line deficiences. I don’t think any one pick will be. But, given Hurney’s history with drafting defensive ends, Ximines does seem tailor made for one of the Panthers’ draft picks. Here’s to hoping the inaccuracy in this mock draft wasn’t in missing the Panthers offering a 2020 first round pick to swoop back into the second round for this Daeshon Hall Jersey , or any other, edge defender.
