Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he is counting on cornerback Bene' Benwikere being a leader in the secondary this year. Benwikere continues to rehab a broken leg suffered late last year but says he is over the hump in terms of the toughest part. Benwikere can be penciled in as one starter. Rivera says he wants to go into training camp before committing to where the three corners drafted will fit in. Second-round pick James Bradberry started at one corner spot during all of Tuesday's team drills.
