I reported back in March that the Panthers staff, including wide receivers coach Lance Taylor, had a private workout with Jones at ECU.
"The Panthers are showing great interest," Jones said back in March. "I had the opportunity to work out for them and hopefully hear good things from them. But other than that, I'm just going to keep doing what I do best, go out here on this Pro Day, perform well, and we'll see where it goes from there."
Jones was already reported having visits with the Titans and Panthers NFC South rival Tampa Bay.
Jones is added to the Panthers list of wide receiver visits along with Fred Ross of Miss. St. Kendrick Bourne, and Malachi Dupre of LSU. The Steelers have also shown interest in Jones as ECU heach coach Scottie Montgomery used to be the wide receivers coach with the Steelers. Montgomery was also a rookire free agent with the Panthers in 2000.
Jones broke the NCAA single season record with 158 receptions last season. Many analyst have him going towards the end of round one and early round two. If he were to somehow fall to 40, the Panthers could certainly look to scoop him up in hopes to get more production in that slot position. Jones can play out wide and in the slot, which makes him even more intriguing to NFL teams.
