For just this one season Sam Darnold has all the tools needed for success that he never had with the dysfunctional Jets. The offensive line is solid and the running game feature ultra-talent Christian McCaffrey. The WR corps is the best Darnold has ever sniffed with two returning stars in DJ Moore and Robby Anderson. Add to this RD2 rookie Terrace Marshall and the group looks downright formidable.

Anderson's contract is up following the 2021 season, making a star WR a potential target for their 2022 RD1 pick.

If Darnold can regain the confidence that he entered the NFL with, the Panthers can make some serious noise in the NFC South, in which case they'll be picking much lower than #5.

PANTHERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
