Not 1, not 2, but 3 sub .500 teams in the top 10. I know everyone was expecting the Cards, Panthers, and Bengals to be really good this year... but they haven't been. The Cards lost to a really good Pats team, beat a mediocre Bucs team, and got embarrassed by an embarrassing Bills team (that you have ranked in the 20s). The Panthers have a bit more of an excuse as their losses have been to mostly good teams (the Broncos and Vikings) but I am still not buying a #5 ranking for a 1-2 team who's only win came against a horrible 49ers team. Lastly you said it all about how the Bengals have performed so far this year. These are not good teams this year, shouldn't their ranking reflect that?
While your brief analysis of the Panther's Oline has a lot of truth to it, I'm not sure it's yet fair to say that their is a problem in the 2ndary. The rooks are playing pretty well and definitely aren't the problem. Another is that they can't get a pass rush because the QBs are having success throwing the ball for short, quick, Brady esque passes, but when throwing deeper, the interior rush at least is getting there, and the corners have been impressing. While they are no Norman at this point, I can say that they are one of the few bright spots so far. The main problem is that the Oline can't block, and special teams can't tackle.

Variety of moves on the block
Effective turnaround jumper
Able to post up smaller defenders; take bigger defenders off the bounce
High release on jumper makes it practically impossible to block
Dangerous in pick-and-pop situations
Runs the floor well
Must become stronger
Needs to be more aggressive on the glass
Establishing solid position on the block
Struggles at times guarding more physical or quicker players, getting him into foul trouble
Summary: Leuer is an extremely versatile power forward for someone his size. Some scouts absolutely love his skill level and believe he is a first-round lock. Others are not quite as sold. Leuer has shown steady improvement during his time at Wisconsin and had a great summer with the USA Select team in which he drew rave reviews. If he can prove to be a more dominating player during his senior season, there is no reason to think he does not get numerous first-round looks.
Player Comparison: Ryan Anderson. Despite being 6-10, Anderson relies more on his perimeter game at the next level which is something Leuer should be able to take advantage of as well. Both players have more finesse games for the power forward position, but their versatility is what allows them to stand out.
