SI.com's NFL personnel expert Michael Lombardi evaluates the Panthers' units.

QB C
Can Delhomme stay healthy? Backup Matt Moore shows promise.

RB B+
Nice speed-power duo in DeAngelo Williams and rookie Stewart.

WR B-
Smith is a great playmaker; Dwayne Jarrett must mature.

TE D
King is hardly a household name; little else there.

OL C
The two tackles are good, but depth is a worry.

DL B
Get Lewis and Peppers both playing well, and this line is solid.

LB B-
Beason improved game to game as a rookie.

DB B-
Competent at corner, but safeties aren't aggressive enough.

ST B
Kasay and Baker remain a very solid kicker-punter duo.
