The Carolina Panthers recently added seven talented players to their roster during the 2017 NFL Draft, which took place April 27-29 in Philadelphia. After coming off a 6-10 season in 2016, the Panthers are looking to boost their lineup going into the 2017 campaign, and this year’s draft class adds versatility and depth on both the offensive and defensive ends.
In the draft, Carolina selected a promising prospect in Christian McCaffrey, a running back from Stanford who is known for his explosive ability to split tackles and beat the defense from the slot. The 6-foot, 200-pound McCaffrey rushed for nearly 4,000 yards in three years at Stanford, and he should prove to be a go-to for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
Other notable players in the Panthers 2017 draft class include wide receiver Curtis Samuel, defensive end Daeshon Hall, and offensive tackle Taylor Morton. Rounding out the list of draft picks are Corn Elder, Alex Armah, and Harrison Butker.
