The Carolina Panthers finished the 2020 NFL season with a 5-11 record, bringing another year of disappointment to the fanbase. With a new quarterback at the helm in 2021, Carolina will be relying on its wide receivers to help with a smooth transition into a new era.

Here's a look at the Panther' updated WR depth chart for 2021.

Panthers WR Depth Chart 2021

1. D.J. Moore

There shouldn't be any doubt about who the Panthers' top wide receiver is. D.J. Moore recorded his second of back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns last season, finishing with 1,193 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns. With the team losing WR Curtis Samuel in the offseason, there's a good possibility that Moore could see even more targets in 2021

2. Robby Anderson

If Moore is the 1A wideout for the Panthers, Robby Anderson has to be 1B. The 28-year-old recorded over 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career last season, adding 3 TDs along the way. He'll be reunited with his former New York Jets QB in Sam Darnold this season, so it'll be interesting to see if the duo can rekindle some chemistry.

3. David Moore

David Moore was brought in to be Samuel's replacement. He finished the 2020 campaign with 417 receiving yards and a career-high 6 touchdowns One thing that does bode well for the former Seattle Seahawk's future is that quarterbacks had a 140.7 passer rating when targeting him last season. Assuming that he can be that reliable with his new team, there's no reason why Moore can't flourish in Carolina.

4. Terrace Marshall Jr.

A second-round pick in this year's draft, Terrace Marshall Jr. has all the makings of a great NFL wideout. He suited up in seven games for the LSU Tigers in 2020, hauling in 48 receptions for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns. Considering how he helped LSU to a 2019 CFP National Championship, the Panthers are hoping that Marshall can bring that winning mentality to the NFL level.

6. Shi Smith

7. Keith Kirkwood

8. Marken Michel

9. Ventell Bryant

10. Ishmael Hyman

11. Omar Bayless
