Bene Benwikere had to wait a bit before getting his number called last season, but when he did, he was apparently one of the best in the business.

As Pro Football Focus reports, Benwikere actually earned the highest coverage grade after being named a starter.

If you weren't excited enough about the Carolina Panthers defense heading into 2015, this just gives you another reason to be. While the linebackers are one of the best groups out there, this group of defensive backs is pretty dangerous themselves.
