What are some attainable goals for Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Corral during his first season with the team in 2022?

There is a sense of hope within the Carolina Panthers organization and fanbase for the first time in a few years.

On the second day of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Panthers traded up in the third round for Ole Miss’ Matt Corral, one of the best quarterbacks in the nation from the 2021 college football season.

It is a move that is exciting the fanbase and generating hope. That has not been on their minds since the 2020 offseason when superstar linebacker Luke Kuechly retired and franchise signal-caller Cam Newton was released.

Throughout much of the offseason, Corral was considered one of the best prospects at the position in the draft. Where he would be selected was something many were uncertain of as the big day approached.

Some believed he would be the first quarterback taken. Others stated he wouldn’t be drafted until the middle of the second round.

Corral lasted to the No. 94 overall selection, nearly falling out of the first 100 picks entirely. This came as a surprise to fans and media alike, including plenty of draft analysts.

The former Rebel comes into the league with plenty of aspiring traits that could one day translate to being an above-average starter in the NFL. However, Corral enters the league as a raw player, as do many of the others drafted this year.

Understandably with a flashy rookie quarterback, there will be hype surrounding Corral as fans excite themselves at the prospect of finally landing their future of the franchise.

While some goals may not be reached this season, here are three attainable goals for the Panthers’ rookie quarterback moving forward.
