Best players available for the Panthers on day 3 of the NFL draft

Here’s some possibilities for the Panthers remaining picks

NCAA Football: Texas A&M vs Arkansas Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

What makes this list long is the Panthers have to wait until the 5th round pick #152 to make their first selection of the day. That is unless they trade up, a very likely scenario.

What’s funny is when I did this kind of post yesterday I took WR Curtis Samuel off the list because I thought he was too much like McCaffrey. Silly me. I won’t do the same this time around.

So here we go. After ranking up to 150 it’s a total crap shoot after that.

56. Dorian Johnson, OL, Pittsburgh

58. Davon Godchaux, DT, LSU

59. Tedric Thompson, S, Colorado

64. Malachi Dupre, WR, LSU

65. Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma

70. Desmond King, CB, Iowa

74. Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson

76. Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee

77. Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn

81. Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming

83. Joshua Dobbs, QB, Tennessee

84. Isaac Asiata, OG, Utah

86. Zach Banner, OT, USC

87. Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas

89. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

90. Vince Biegel, LB, Wisconsin

92. Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State

95. Jaleel Johnson, DT, Iowa

97. Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell

98. Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma

99. Nathan Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh

100. David Sharpe, OT, Florida

101. Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida

102. George Kittle, TE, Iowa

103. Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, Texas A&M

106. Ishmael Zamora, WR, Baylor

107. Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech

108. Chad Hansen, WR, Cal

111. Nico Siragusa, OL, San Diego State

113. Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami

116. KD Cannon, WR, Baylor

118. Jake Butt, TE, Michigan

119. Danny Isidora, OG, Miami

122. Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson

126. Anthony Walker, LB, Northwestern

130. Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego St.

132. Howard Wilson, CB, Houston

134. Jehu Chesson, WR, Michigan

135. Jessamen Dunker, OG, Tennessee St.

136. Fadol Brown, DE, Ole Miss

137. Collin Buchanan, OT, Miami (Ohio)

138. Avery Gennesy, OT, Texas A&M

141. Shelton Gibson, WR, West Virginia

142. Jeremy McNichols, RB, Boise St.

143. Mack Hollins, WR, North Carolina

144. Tarik Cohen, RB-KR, North Carolina A&T

145. Jalen Myrick, CB, Minnesota

146. Zane Gonzalez, K, Arizona State

147. Brandon Barnes, TE, Alabama St.

148. Ben Gedeon, ILB, Michigan

Prior to the draft I listed the Panthers needs as this: OT, RB, DE, WR, S, KR/PR

In the Panthers first four picks they have crossed off five of the six positions listed. All that remains is the selection of a developmental safety.

So who the back end here do you think the Panthers will select?
