2014

2013

While Steve Smith is the team's top target, LaFell was actually its most efficient – and that's been true two years running. Of course, Smith is the player seeing extra defensive attention, and LaFell's 15.4 YPC and 8.9 YPT came on just 76 looks. Still, 13 went for 20 or more yards and two went for 40-plus. At 6-3, 206 and with good long speed, LaFell has the ability to make plays down the field. His biggest problem, other than Smith dominating the targets, is Carolina’s run-first approach in the red zone. Cam Newton attempted only 60 passes there all year (20th) despite playing all 16 games, and LaFell himself saw only nine targets in that area. Still, LaFell will be the team's No. 2 wideout again this year, and Smith turned 34 in May.

2012

Someone has to start opposite Steve Smith, and it appears LaFell is the most likely candidate. LaFell saw just 56 targets last year, but put 10.9 YPT and 17 YPC. At 6-3, 206, and with good long speed, LaFell has the physical tools to produce, but Cam Newton leaned heavily on Smith and then spread the rest of the targets around between LaFell, the team’s tight ends and other receivers. And while Legedu Naanee has left to play in Miami, David Gettis – who was a factor in 2010 – should be healthy and could push LaFell for the job.

2011

The 78th pick of the 2010 draft, LaFell didn’t make a significant impact during his rookie season. Much of that was due to inept quarterback play in Carolina, but fellow rookie – and sixth round pick – David Gettis seemed to leapfrog LaFell on the depth chart. At 6-3, 206 and with good speed, he has the physical tools to break out, should the Panthers generate any kind of passing offense – something that’s entirely possible but unlikely, given their current quarterback situation of Jimmy Clausen, Cam Newton or Derek Anderson.

2010

The 78th pick in the 2010 draft, LaFell falls into a favorable situation with the Panthers. After Steve Smith the WR situation in Carolina is wide open, since last year's No. 2 Dwayne Jarrett did little to hold on to his job. LaFell is a good combination of size and speed, though off field issues dropped him down on draft day. He is worth a late round grab in deep seasonal formats and possibly a second round pick in rookie-only drafts.
