Who are the best undrafted free-agent signings ever made by the Carolina Panthers during their history spanning almost 30 years?

Since the inaugural season in 1995, the Carolina Panthers have had a few success stories when it comes to undrafted free agents. Several players ignored during their respective selection processes were critical components to some high-quality football teams that had a lot of success.

Some of these players even helped fuel Super Bowl runs with the franchise. And everyone loves a good underdog story, after all.

Undrafted players usually come in with a huge chip on their shoulder from being overlooked in the NFL Draft. But there are many examples across the league that are testament to what can be achieved even if a college prospect fails to hear their name called initially.

The Panthers have secured plenty of valuable contributors that were overlooked by every other team on multiple occasions. If Carolina has unearthed a diamond or two from their 2022 undrafted free-agent class, then the better their chances will be during a hugely important campaign for the team and head coach Matt Rhule in 2022.

Of course, Sam Mills and Jake Delhomme would be prime examples of this even if they did start on other teams. But who are the four best-ever Panthers undrafted free agents in franchise history?
