List Criteria: Please rank the players based on their team with the Panthers

A list of the best Carolina Panthers of all time. Formed in 1995 with their expansion brothers the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Panthers have been one of the most up-and-down franchises during their existence. The early Panthers teams were some of the best in football. Carolina reached the NFC Championship Game in only its second year and had some of the best linebackers players in the league on that team. Franchise icons like Sam Mills, Kevin Greene and Lamar Lathon were part of a brutal linebacking core that struck fear into the hearts of opposing offense. Also, one of the best receivers in team history, Mushin Muhammad, was drafted during the franchise's early years.

After a 1-15 season in 2001, the Panthers regrouped and by 2003, the team went its first Super Bowl. Led by some of the best players in team history like quarterback Jake Delhomme, Julius Peppers and Steve Smith, the Panthers fell three points shorts against the heavily favored New England Patriots. Smith in particular has established himself as one of the premier receivers in the league. He and Muhammad formed the best Panthers receiving duo to date. The team's fortunes turned after that run and now are looking to rebuild on the strength of franchise quarterback Cam Newton, who in his short time has become one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
