Carolina Panthers set to host intriguing LB
The Carolina Panthers are busy discovering more about certain prospects of interest ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft. While rumors swirl about which quarterback will be their pick at No. 1 overall, those in power are also turning attention to other positional groups further down the pecking order.
According to multiple reports, the Panthers are set to host Daiyan Henley on a top-30 visit in the coming days. The linebacker might be a little undersized, but his exceptional ability in coverage is something that should mesh well within Ejiro Evero's new 3-4 base defense in 2023.
Henley could be a possibility at No. 39 overall depending on how the draft board plays out. But the need for an edge rusher or a productive cornerback is arguably greater than solidifying the defensive second-level.
