Carolina Panthers must not divert from their objectives

Every NFL team goes into the draft with a list of objectives. These alter slightly depending on how things are playing out, but hitting them consistently is what separates the contending organizations from the also-rans.

The Carolina Panthers have got a lot on their plate in terms of needs. They also don’t have much in the way of top-end capital to accomplish their draft goals.

That’s why it’s absolutely imperative that those in power do not divert from their initial aims during the draft. Otherwise, it’s going to come with some significant ramifications that could detrimentally impact matters when the 2022 season begins.

Obviously, plans and targets change rapidly over the seven rounds.

But objectives should remain the same.

This is going to take a collective effort from influential figures within the organization. There is also the question of whether head coach Matt Rhue will continue to get the final say on personnel decisions despite Scott Fitterer‘s increasing influence.

Any indecision is not going to reflect too well on “The Brand” and “The Process”. From a fan perspective, this only adds to the excitement with so many factors to consider.
