The Carolina Panthers added seven new players via the 2019 NFL draft last week: defensive end Brian Burns, tackle Greg Little, quarterback Will Grier, defensive end/outside linebacker Christian Miller, running back Jordan Scarlett, tackle Dennis Daley and receiver Terry Godwin.

All will participate in their first NFL camp when the Panthers’ rookie minicamp takes place May 10-11.

At that point, these players will begin working toward making the 53-man roster — and some hope to have a featured role within it.

Here’s what the Panthers’ 2019 roster and depth chart might look like by the first week of the season:

Offensive line (10)

Left tackle: Greg Little. Reserve: Dennis Daley/Isaiah Battle.
