Carolina Panthers should monitor Dalton Kincaid

Anyone that follows me on Twitter knows that I have been banging the Dalton Kincaid drum for a few months now. This is someone who could have an immediate impact on the Carolina Panthers’ offense.

Kincaid has been a five-year player at the collegiate level with both San Diego State and Utah, putting up encouraging numbers consistently. The player has totaled at least eight touchdowns in four of his seasons with only the COVID-19-shortened campaign in 2020 where he was restricted to five games.

The prospect has gone somewhat under the radar until a performance against USC really put his name on the map. In a matchup against the undefeated Trojans, Kincaid put up a monster line of 16 receptions for 234 receiving yards and a score in the Utes’ 43-42 comeback win.


A big plus for Kincaid is his exceptional hands and you rarely see him drop passes. Something that has plagued Tommy Tremble and Ian Thomas in recent years.

Kincaid has been mocked anywhere between the early 20s of the first round and somewhere in the mid-second round. With Carolina picking up at No. 39 overall, if Kincaid is available when the Panthers are on the clock they should turn in their card without hesitation.
