The Carolina Panthers could end up with another player with enormous upside with their second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

It proved to be a dramatic end to the 2020 NFL Draft’s first round. Plenty of moves were made by contending teams for specific players of need. This has left some projected first-round prospects dropping to day two.

This is good news for the Carolina Panthers. They could now end up with another player that represents significantly good value with their No. 38 pick.

The franchise bolstered their front by taking former Auburn standout Derrick Brown with the seventh overall pick. The defensive tackle gives them a formidable presence on the line of scrimmage to put alongside returning stud Kawann Short on the interior.

Despite this impressive addition to their ranks, more college recruits that can immediately contribute will need to be chosen. The Panthers are in a tough spot in the NFC South and they desperately need more energy after letting a host of seasoned veterans go in free agency.

Taking someone like Brown is a good start. And judging by the players left it would be a huge surprise if Carolina does not end up with another day one starter with a high ceiling.

This is the part of the Draft where Panthers’ general manager Marty Hurney normally excels. He is accustomed to finding value picks that go on to have successful careers during his time with the organization.

With that said, who are the best prospects left that the Panthers could take?
