Pick No. 6: Chatarius Atwell – WR (Louisville)

It remains to be seen whether Curtis Samuel will sign a new deal with the Carolina Panthers after the season. Regardless of whether the former Ohio State standout stays or not, the wide receiver unit needs additional depth who could emerge as potential starters down the line.

Chatarius Atwell has game-changing speed that is an electrifying prospect with the ball in his hands. He will need to get a bit stronger when coming off press coverage in the slot. But there is a tremendous amount to work with.

Pick No. 7: Jarrett Patterson – OG (Notre Dame)

As stated previously, the Panthers could be set for another makeover on their interior protection this offseason. Jarrett Patterson has been playing at a supremely high level for the Fighting Irish in 2020 and a strong end to the campaign should they reach the college football playoffs would boost his draft stock even further.

Patterson is not the most refined of guards in terms of technique. But the simple fact of the matter is he gets the job done more often than not.

Pick No. 8: Dyami Brown – WR (North Carolina)

Pharoh Cooper and Brandon Zylstra are out of contract next spring and are unlikely to be brought back. This leaves the Panthers significantly short of depth behind the top-three options, providing Samuel ends up signing an extension.

Dyami Brown has been a revelation for North Carolina this season and is a primary deep threat that needs monitoring at all times. There are some concerns regarding his ability to create separation at the next level. But he looks highly coachable and it’s not like Carolina will be expecting miracles right away.
