2023 NFL Power Rankings: Carolina Panthers

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 3 roundup for the Carolina Panthers in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 29

Player: OLB Brian Burns
Current contract situation: Under contract through the 2023 season

Burns is playing under the fifth-year option of his rookie deal for $16 million. But he wants to be among the highest-paid edge rushers in the NFL, earning somewhere between $25 million and $30 million a year. The sides aren't close, and Burns said on Saturday as far as he's concerned negotiations are "on hold'' even though the team is willing to negotiate, according to a league source. With each sack Burns collects, the sides won't get closer, and he had two just in Week 1. -- David Newton

NFL.com -- Rank: 27

By the time the Panthers were able to get Jonathan Mingo involved and Bryce Young finally settled down against New Orleans, it was too late. The 0-2 start isn't shocking, but it has to be disappointing, because Carolina was in both games in the fourth quarter. Frank Reich told us to have patience, and we certainly do, but that's now two touchdowns in 23 offensive drives. It's not all on Young, but his three turnovers in two games could have been avoided. There's a foundation here, and the defense played pretty well again. Still, Carolina is stuck in the mud a bit for now, until the passing game starts humming.

2023 NFL Predictions: NFC South

Before the start of the season, we will post NFL division-by-division predictions for the 2023 NFL regular season and postseason.

Andy Dalton33.421.8232.

Bryce Young: It is no surprise that the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 draft will be the Week 1 starter, but his dynasty outlook vastly outweighs his fantasy value in redraft leagues. Ups and downs should be expected for any rookie, but Young is always composed, processes information quickly and thrives when extending and making plays outside of structure.
