No. 110: Kolby Harvell-Peel – S (Oklahoma State)

The Carolina Panthers did take Kenny Robinson in the fifth round this year and also have an exciting prospect in undrafted rookie Sam Franklin. But the need for another safety is glaring when one considers the struggles Tre Boston has gone through for the majority of the campaign.

Kolby Harvell-Peel is an exciting young talent who is a physically imposing player to have on the backend. He has the sort of versatility Carolina loves and plays in a physical manner that is sure to make him an instant fan favorite.

If Harvell-Peel can become a little more fluid in his movements, then someone is going to have a real player on their hands.

No. 149: Cade Mays – OG (Tennessee)

There are cracks beginning to show on the Panthers’ interior protection, particularly with Chris Reed at the left guard position. This is an area that needs to be strengthened next spring and Cade Mays has plug-and-play starter potential who represents tremendous value at No. 149.

Mays’ decision to transfer from Georgia to Tennessee seems to have been the making of him. The versatile player is a huge body to move off the block and he also has the necessary quickness to possibly occupy a tackle position if needed.

Should the Panthers end up with Mays, then taking him out of the firing line at guard during the initial stages of his development seems the best way to go, which would further aid their cause in 2021.
