But the chart has undergone a lot of change since the 2016 season ended.
Here’s a position-by-position look at where the draft picks fit heading into a Friday-Saturday rookie minicamp (rookies in bold):
Comment: No changes here, other than Newton won’t be able to throw until training camp after undergoing surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff.
Comment: Stewart will remain the starter, but McCaffrey will be featured in third-down and passing situations out of the backfield, as well as a slot receiver. Carolina’s first-round draft pick also will spell Stewart in running situations. Samuel, the team’s second-round pick, also will see time in the backfield even though he was drafted as a wide receiver.
Comment: Armah, Carolina’s sixth-round pick, admittedly is a project. But his upside is high and he could be the lead player at a position he hasn’t played full time since high school when all is said and done.
Comment: The only issue here is Benjamin’s weight. Shepard should make the roster as a special teams player if nothing else.
Comment: This needs to be the year Funchess steps up his role.
Slot receiver -- Samuel, Charles Johnson.
Comment: Slot typically isn’t referred to as a starting position, but Samuel is the guy.
Comment: Kalil was given a five-year, $55.5 million deal to take over this spot for Oher, who has been in the concussion protocol since late September. Oher will move to the right side, but if something were to happen to Kalil and Oher is out of the protocol he could take over.
Comment: The addition of Silatolu makes the depth here better.
Comment: Deepest position on the line with the return of Pro Bowler Kalil from offseason shoulder surgery.
Comment: Turner is the starter, but Scott is more than capable.
Comment: Oher is a more natural fit here. If he clears the protocol, he has an edge over Williams. If that’s the case, the Panthers can bring Moton along slowly.
Comment: Still surprised the Panthers didn’t draft a tight end to develop behind Pro Bowler Olsen.
Comment: With Johnson, who will be 31 when the season starts, and 37-year-old Julius Peppers Carolina needed a young end to develop. They traded up in the third round to get Hall out of Texas A&M, where he played opposite Myles Garrett, who went first overall in the draft to Cleveland.
Comment: It’ll be interesting to see how Butler, Carolina’s 2016 first-round pick, progresses now that the high ankle sprain that hampered him last season is healed.
Comment: Signing 2015 Pro Bowl selection Short to a long-term deal during the offseason was big.
Comment: Addison is expected to take a bigger role even with the addition of Peppers.
Comment: Boulware wasn’t drafted, but Carolina coach Ron Rivera and general manager Dave Gettleman gushed about the former Clemson star like he was.
Comment: Will this be the last year we’ll see the 34-year-old Davis, in the final year of his contract?
Comment: Panthers are expecting a lot out of Thompson in his third year.
Comment: Munnerlyn was a huge offseason signing in that he will start at nickel back and can play outside when needed.
Comment: Coleman returns to his more natural position after a year at strong safety.
Comment: Still surprised Carolina didn’t draft a safety in a deep class. Adams is 36.
Comment: Elder was drafted in the fifth round mainly to back up Munnerlyn as the nickel back.
Comment: That Gano is coming off surgery on his plant foot, a year in which he missed several big kicks and the Panthers drafted Butker feels like a change is coming.
Comment: Lee is coming off a season-ending hamstring injury.
Deep snapper – J.J. Jansen.
Punt returner – McCaffrey, Byrd.
Kickoff returner – Whittaker, Byrd.
