Falcons vs Panthers 2015: Who to Watch Against Carolina

Hopefully this game won't look like the one pictured above.

Grady Jarrett, Defensive Tackle

With Paul Soliai nursing an injured calf, it's looking like rookie defensive tackle Grady Jarrett will be receiving a healthy amount of snaps versus the Carolina Panthers this weekend. In his limited role, Jarrett has played well above his draft status and has given fans hope for the future alongside Ra'Shede Hageman. Today will get him key developmental snaps, regardless of the outcome.

Jacob Tamme, Tight End

Panthers' cornerback Josh Norman has arguably been the best defender in the NFL this season, and will give fans something to talk about when he lines up against Julio Jones. If Jones gets caught up in Normans sticky web of coverage, Matt will likely be looking towards Tamme with the rest of the receiving corps underperforming.

Philip Wheeler, Linebacker

At the beginning of the year, linebackers Justin Durant and Brooks Reed looked to be excellent pickups, and were working out quite well despite Reed overcoming injury. Over the last two months, however, we're seen some awfully poor play from a majority of the position group. Wheeler was brought in off of waivers and has quickly established himself as one of the better players on that side of the ball. He'll need to continue his level of play while facing a fierce Panthers running attack.

Who do you've got this week?
