Undrafted Jordan Harold attempts to trade pass rush for hot wings outside Panthers practice

Life is rough if you’re an undrafted free agent and still don’t have a team this many weeks after the NFL Draft, but one prospect is doing what he can to get noticed.

I wasn’t crazy about this pick at the outset for a couple reasons. First off I don’t see running back as a position of need. I like the current depth of Christian McCaffrey, Cameron-Artis Payne and Elijah Hood. Mainly because it’s 99% McCaffrey toting the rock, but still. My second issue was I had heard nothing of Scarlett being even a decent prospect. After a little research of draft profiles it would appear there is good reason...
