What to expect from the Panthers final three draft picks in 2022
By Dean Jones
What can the Carolina Panthers expect from their final three selections from what appears to be a very successful haul during the 2022 NFL Draft?
The Carolina Panthers rounded off the 2022 NFL Draft with three picks in the final two rounds. This concluded another impressive selection process from the organization, which filled significant needs early on before acquiring some eye-catching prospects with high athletic traits that can hopefully transition well to the next level with additional coaching.
What comes next for each college recruit will be vitally important. Rookie minicamp will come around quickly and this is swiftly followed by what is going to be another intense training camp in the stifling heat of Spartanburg, South Carolina.
The Panthers started the draft with six picks and ended with the same number. They did ship out next year’s third-round selection in a trade-up to acquire quarterback Matt Corral, who will now look to push Sam Darnold all the way throughout the preparation period in pursuit of the starting job.
Amare Barno, Cade Mays, and () were some of the lesser-heralded prospects to join the Panthers later on in the draft. All three come with upside, but expecting any of them to come in and start right away does appear unrealistic at this juncture.
With this in mind, we took a look at the trio to see what the Panthers can expect next season and beyond.
