Where the 2019 Carolina Panthers NFL Draft picks stand
Edge Christian Miller, who has talent that could eventually lead to a starter’s position, is also a player who could also play a larger role if given time to mature and develop. Injury led to a disappointing slide into the fourth round of the draft, but the Panthers saw enough of the 6-foot-3, 247 pounds player along Alabama’s defensive front to give him a chance as a mid-round player. Miller as well as Burns both can play similarly to new Panthers hybrid end, Bruce Irvin, and benefit greatly from having him on the team to teach and mentor them.
Funny to think about how much the surprise signing benefits the future of these two rookies. In a year or two, when both Irvin and Mario Addison are gone, Panthers could have a solid replacement in Miller, if he can stay healthy as well as develop at a decent rate.
