Melvin White (Panthers CB)

Ravens fans will continue to cringe every time they watch Anquan Boldin haul down a big catch this postseason, and that could go on for a while. Make no mistake, the Panthers are stout on defense. Their front seven can probably compete with Seattle's -- but their secondary isn't nearly as strong. You've heard of cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (maybe in part because of his name), but you probably don't know much about White, an undrafted rookie starting on the other side. For Carolina to advance, it needs to find a way to cover Boldin, Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis. In other words, there's nowhere for a rookie to hide. He'll have to hold his own, otherwise the efforts of Luke Kuechly, Greg Hardy and company could go to waste.
