Dazz Newsone – WR (North Carolina)
The Carolina Panthers lost the services of do-it-all wide receiver Curtis Samuel in free agency when he signed a big-money deal with the Washington Football Team. They did acquire David Moore following a successful stint with the Seattle Seahawks, but addressing this potential problem by taking a college prospect with game-changing potential is an option well worth considering.
This is something Dazz Newsome is more than capable of. The wideout is no stranger to the area having played his college football at North Carolina and his arrival to the Panthers would be a hugely popular one with the team’s loyal fanbase.
Newsome can line up almost anywhere on the field and make an impact. He has plenty of notable highlights from the outside, working out of the slot, or even taking carries out of the backfield should the opportunity arise. So he could be tailor-made for Joe Brady’s high-octane scheme in Carolina.
There are obviously plenty of mouths to feed on offense for Carolina despite Samuel opting for a new challenge elsewhere. However, Newsome’s polished route-running and ability to get open quickly from the slot could be just what Sam Darnold needs to make a better go of things in a different environment.
