A Look At the 2015 Panthers unrestricted free agents

Before approaching the draft, teams make moves in order to advance the team’s vision and philosophy for the upcoming year and the years to come. When looking at the team and the team’s needs it is important to learn what the team’s vision is and the dynamics that make-up the team.

LB Thomas Davis, in his recent interview on ‘Move the Sticks’, describes what it means to be a Carolina Panther. What does “playing like a Carolina Panther mean?” Davis: “You have to give us your all. You’ve got to come in and be willing to sell out for the team. That’s how we play on defense. We try and play like that on all three phases (Offense, Defense, Special Teams.) On defense, specifically, Davis states that “we play for eachother. We look at no one like they’re bigger than the team. We play the game at a high level.”

What type of player would fit what the Carolina Panthers look for? GM David Gettlemen, before he looks at any of the college tape on the draft class, sits down with the players and finds out about their football IQ. Gettlemen looks for players who can have an immediate impact on the field for the team.

Another part of Gettlemen’s philosophy is building depth and he believes you can never have too many quality players at any position.  Gettlemen, when using draft picks, will go with the best player on the board. His philosophy has worked well, all but for the 6th pick, which maybe this time around can have better success.
