The Carolina Panthers are the first team in NFL history to start their season with 3 straight victories, only to end up 5-12.

This is embarrassing on a number of fronts especially when you consider that Panthers Head Coach Matt Rhule is 0-5 against NFL coaches that got fired today (so far). Panther fans are as embarrassed about Sam Darnold as owner David Tepper reportedly is and Matt Rhule would even put Cam Newton in the game on a measly 4th and inches to end his career the right way. Needless to say, Coach Rhule doesn't currently have many friends here in Charlotte.


Carolina Panthers front office knows how bad the offensive line is. They have neglected it for the better part of a decade and MUST fix the LT position once and for all. Brady Christiansen showed some promise playing LT this year, but Matt Rhule hates his "T Rex" arms. So instead, the Panthers will draft professional people mover, Ikem Ekwonu from NC State!

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.
