2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A fifth-round pick in 2014, Benwikere ultimately emerged as one of the Panthers' top cornerbacks over the course of his rookie season. Overall, the San Jose State product finished with 33 tackles, seven passes defended and one interception. Heading into his second season, Benwikere is expected to start at Carolina's nickel position, a significant role that should see his fantasy stock continue to rise.

2014

A fifth-round selection this year, Benwikere will be expected to provide depth at cornerback during his rookie campaign.
