Five NFL Draft Predictions for the Carolina Panthers

Five NFL Draft Predictions for the Carolina Panthers

1. The Panthers will bring in three or more corners during the draft and after.

The departure of Josh Norman leaves an already thin cornerback corp in a scary position.

Don't Expect to See a Lot of Shaq Thompson Against the Texans

The Carolina Panthers 1st Rd draft pick only saw 17 defensive snaps in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. It amounted to only 25% of all defensive snaps.
