The latter rounds pick announcements are only broadcast on certain channels if at all. Now you can hear them all.

Re-watch every draft pick sorted by team here (Using streamable): nfl

Carolina Panthers:

Round 1, Pick 8, Christian McCaffrey, RB

Round 2, Pick 40, Curtis Samuel, WR

Round 2, Pick 64, Taylor Moton, OG

Round 3, Pick 77, Daeshon Hall, DE

Round 5, Pick 152, Corn Elder, CB

Round 6, Pick 192, Alex Armah, FB

Round 7, Pick 233, Harrison Butker, K

While we are talking draft here’s a draft class power ranking that I think is very short sighted regarding the Panthers class.

2017 NFL Draft class power rankings: Teams 21-24 -

23. Carolina Panthers

Draft picks: Christian McCaffrey (No. 8 overall), Curtis Samuel (No. 40 overall), Taylor Moton (No. 64 overall), Daeshon Hall (No. 77 overall), Corn Elder (No. 152 overall), Alex Arma (No. 192 overall), Harrison Butker (No. 233 overall)

Christian McCaffrey should be one of the safest offensive players in the draft thanks to his versatility as a pass-catcher. We will see how the Panthers decided to use second-rounder Curtis Samuel and third-rounder Taylor Moton, but I see Samuel as a wide receiver and Moton as a guard. Daeshon Hall is an upside prospect who needs to continue to learn the game with his hand in the ground.

I think McCaffrey could vie for Offensive Rookie of the Year if Shula’s gives him enough touches. I also think this class has a high ceiling from top to bottom.
