Panthers add to both lines in latest mock draft round-up

Panthers add to both lines in latest mock draft round-up

The Panthers will have a tough decision to make with the No. 16 pick on Thursday night. This time next weekend, the Carolina Panthers will have new additions to their roster. The real question is who will Ron Rivera decide to choose in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday? It’s been said for months that the most crucial points for the Panthers to address are the pass rush and the offensive line. In Dan Kadar’s latest mock draft for SB Nation, he has a standout offensive tackle pegged for the No. 16 pick for the Panthers. 16. Carolina Panthers: Jawaan Taylor, OT,...

The Panthers don’t need to draft a quarterback within the early rounds of the NFL Draft

The Panthers don’t need to draft a quarterback within the early rounds of the NFL Draft

This team has way too many holes to address before even considering a quarterback to draft. A popular take that has been spreading around lately is the idea of Carolina drafting a quarterback within the first three rounds of the draft. When I think about all the holes the Panthers have on both sides of the football, it doesn’t make sense for them to even consider a quarterback that early. It seems as though most of the arguments that support the Panthers drafting a quarterback that early center around Cam Newton’s health. It’s completely understandable for fans to worry about this....

Chris Hogan’s 1-year deal with the Panthers is worth $1.45 million

Chris Hogan’s 1-year deal with the Panthers is worth $1.45 million

The Panthers may be getting a nice value on the capable veteran wide receiver According to Over the Cap, free agent wide receiver Chris Hogan’s one-year contract comes with a $1.45 million cap hit in 2019. His signing bonus is a reported $300,000. I recently highlighted three reasons Panthers fans should be optimistic about Hogan’s signing and that list can now be expanded to four in light of his relatively small cap hit. A $1.45 million deal is small enough to keep the Panthers books out of the red and represents sufficient value to leave their rivals green with envy. Carolina...

Could the Panthers trade up from No. 16 overall?

The Panthers could look to move up to grab their guy in the first round. As we close in on the 2019 NFL Draft, speculation and rumors are running rampant. The infinite combinations of outcomes that can play out next Thursday night spark creativity that can lead to absurd or genius draft takes vindicated only by the decisions of a few.

3 Chris Hogan stats that should have Panthers fans excited

3 Chris Hogan stats that should have Panthers fans excited

The Panthers newest addition won’t suddenly morph into a 1,000-plus yard receiver, but he has plenty of skills to carve out a valuable niche in the Carolina offense. On first glance there is nothing sexy about Chris Hogan’s career. He entered the NFL in 2012 as an undrafted and unheralded free agent. He spent the first four years of his career toiling away in the wasteland that is the Buffalo Bills. Hogan spent the last three seasons as the latest interchangeable Caucasian wide receiver to win Super Bowls in the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady system. At age 30 he has never exceeded 41...
