Jimmy Clausen ahead of Cam Newton on Carolina depth chart

The job will not be handed to Cam Newton.

But nobody really expects it to take too long for the No. 1 overall draft pick to become the starter for the Carolina Panthers.

That time isn’t now as the team released its first depth chart of the preseason. Jimmy Clausen, the second-round draft pick from a year ago, is atop the depth chart ahead of Newton, according to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. Clausen will start Saturday night at home vs. the Giants.
