Tre Boston is expected to take over as a starting safety for the Panthers.
With Roman Harper back in New Orleans, Boston's path to the starting job opposite Kurt Coleman is wide open. A fourth-round pick in 2014, Boston has played limited snaps on defense through his first two years, but he has three interceptions and a fumble recovery to his name despite the limited playing time. With serious questions at corner, the Panthers need their safety group to be sound. Jun 28 - 9:23 AM

Tre Boston opened OTAs as the Panthers' starting free safety.

Last year's starting free safety, Kurt Coleman, is shifting to strong safety, replacing veteran Roman Harper, who hasn't been re-signed to this point. Boston entered last offseason as the favorite to start over Coleman, but lost the gig in camp, and Coleman ended up third in the NFL with seven picks.

Panthers fourth-round S Tre Boston is being held out of OTAs after undergoing sports-hernia surgery earlier in the offseason.

The Panthers "hope" to have him back for the start of training camp. Boston projects as a free safety in the NFL and could challenge FS Thomas DeCoud for snaps in year one if DeCoud has as ugly a season as he had with Atlanta in 2013. Boston picked off 12 passes in his college career at North Carolina.

Panthers signed No. 128 overall pick DB Tre Boston to a four-year contract.

A versatile, high-energy playmaker, Boston (6-foot-0, 204 pounds) has experience at both corner and safety. Still only 22 (next month), Boston offers starting-caliber upside if allowed to stick at one position. Thanks to his 4.59 wheels, his most likely NFL home is free safety.

Panthers selected North Carolina DB Tre Boston with the No. 128 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Boston (5-foot-11 5/8, 204) was a versatile, high-energy playmaker in the Tar Heels' secondary, seeing action at both corner and safety and recording 12 career interceptions. He has outstanding ball skills. Boston will only be 22 during his rookie season, and offers starting-caliber upside if given time to perfect his craft at one position. Due to 4.59 speed, Boston's most likely NFL home is free safety. To nail down that position long term, however, Boston needs to improve as an in-space tackler.
