31. Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton’s superb 2015 sneaks the Panthers into second-last place on this list. His brilliant form before injuries made him one of the most exciting quarterbacks in the league for a couple seasons. Meanwhile, Jake Delhomme was consistently excellent for the franchise, throwing for almost 20,000 yards during his six years with the team. Things ended badly for him there, but he was solid in his heyday.

It’s important to remember that the Panthers are still a relatively young franchise. They’re only around since 1993, so it stands to reason they wouldn’t have massive depth here. Kerry Collins and Steve Beurlein had their moments for Carolina but never reached a consistently elite level. Meanwhile, in 2020, Terry Bridgewater is a shrewd acquisition until they finally get another young franchise quarterback.
