Panthers complete their rookie class with five UDFAs

The Panthers’ rookie class is complete at 12.

NFL: Carolina Panthers-Christian McCaffrey Press Conference Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers added five undrafted players to the seven they drafted to complete their rookie class. If my count is right the Panthers roster sits at 86 players.

I don’t know about you but I like this draft class. It’s very rare I feel that way almost immediately after the draft, much less many days afterward. We drafted to positions of need with players that have a great chance of making the final 53. Well at least five of them do.

We also brought in a couple UDFAs who have a chance to stick. I would put LB Ben Boulware at the top of the list. WR Fred Ross has a real chance too and so does Bryan Cox. Well at least they could earn a spot on the practice squad.

So what overall grade to you give this draft class?
