Round 5, 161st overall: Jaylen Samuels, NC State running back

Similar to the mock of Frank Ragnow, the Panthers have to love Jaylen Samuel’s versatility. Samuels could be tried at tight end, running back, full back, wide receiver, or just his self-declared position of playmaker. He came in for a local visit with Carolina, and would be a great pick for the Panthers.

In 2017, he rushed 78 times for 407 yards and 12 touchdowns and had 75 receptions for 593 yards and four touchdowns. In 2016, his 33 rushing attempts went for 189 yards and six touchdowns, with 55 receptions for 565 yards and seven touchdowns. He was an excellent contributor in 2015 for NC State as well.

Needless to say, Jaylen Samuels would fill a plethora of roles for the Panthers and be a complete steal at 161st overall on Saturday.
