Which non-quarterback prospects should the Carolina Panthers keep a close eye on next season ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft?
Although it’s obviously some time away, the Carolina Panthers will already be working on potential prospects for the 2023 NFL Draft. This year’s assessment process was an exhausting one for fans and analysts with no consensus No. 1 quarterback prospect and there was a huge sense of relief when everything came to an end, in all honesty.
The Panthers managed to fill two major needs with Ikem Ekwonu and Matt Corral early on. They followed this up with some high athletic individuals that can hopefully refine their craft with additional development with the team’s new-look coaching staff.
Much will depend on how Corral develops in the coming months. But the Panthers could give him a little more leeway if they feel there is a starter to build around on a rookie deal.
Although next year’s class of signal-callers looks exceptional, here are five non-quarterback prospects that the Panthers should monitor for the 2023 draft.
Prospect No. 1
Carolina Panthers should monitor Broderick Jones
The Carolina Panthers have a bookend tackle presence to finally call upon in Ikem Ekwonu and Taylor Moton. This should instantly transform their fortunes and give whoever is under center a significant shot in the arm along the way.
A number of veterans such as Cam Erving are out of contract next spring. This could lead the Panthers into finding another exciting recruit from the college ranks to further bolster their options.
Broderick Jones is a huge body at 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds who is coming off a national championship campaign at Georgia. The possibilities are endless regarding the prospect, who currently has a second-round projection ahead of the 2022 season.
