RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The Panthers' 2015 first round pick, Thompson is a hybrid linebacker that was somewhat slowed by a knee injury to start last year, but finished with 50 tackles in 14 regular season appearances. As the campaign unfolded, the Panthers found more ways to use Thompson, particularly his coverage flexibility. Going into his second season, Thompson projects as Carolina's third starting linebacker, which bodes well for an increase in production, but Pro Bowlers Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis should continue to thrive in three-down roles, capping Thompson's upside should they stay healthy.

2015

The Panthers' first-round pick this year, Thompson is an ultra-athletic linebacker that should allow defensive coordinator Sean McDermott to get creative with his scheme work this season. Although somewhat undersized, Thompson's playmaking ability should gradually see him emerge as the Panthers' third starting linebacker besides Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis.
