Have the Carolina Panthers done enough at QB?
All the talk throughout the offseason was just what the Carolina Panthers were going to do at the quarterback position.
Sam Darnold‘s failure to produce the goods after his trade from the New York Jets was a major gamble that didn’t pay off. Finding someone that could potentially come in and replace the USC product was an absolute necessity for the franchise before the campaign got underway.
After striking out on ambitious trades for Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson, the Panthers finally got their man when they moved up to No. 94 overall for Matt Corral. Although the former Ole Miss standout is a work in progress, there is a slight chance he can push Darnold all the way during training camp in pursuit of the starting job.
However, the question has to be asked.
Have the Panthers done enough at the most important position on the field?
Carolina has been more methodical in its quarterback approach. Perhaps leaving the door slightly open for a veteran further down the line and keeping all options open regarding an exceptional-looking draft class in 2023.
There is a sense of urgency regarding Matt Rhule in 2022. Any further failings will not be tolerated by the fans and moving forward with Darnold and Corral is another shot in the dark based on the veteran’s production and the rookie needing time to develop.
