Summary

The suspension of Thomas Davis for a PED violation will mean Shaq Thompson will take the reins for the Panthers at weakside linebacker. A three-down role is on the cards after Thompson played only 684 snaps last season. Entering his fourth season, Thompson will not get a better chance to finally cement his spot in the line-up on a permanent basis. Pass coverage has been a weakness of his, but his athletic profile suggests he should be able to handle backs and tight ends in coverage downfield. If he can supplant Davis, he has the chance to be a solid LB2. (May 5)
