The Carolina Panthers have made a trade to move to the No. 37 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. They have selected Greg Little, an offensive tackle from the University of Mississippi.

The Panthers paid a high price, their first pick in the third round, but they traded up to get a left tackle which was a position of true need after releasing Matt Kalil this off season.

Little played in 36 career college games over three years for Ole Miss, including 29 starts at left tackle. His career to date has been littered with All-American and All-SEC accolades.

He also has the ideal size to play tackle in the NFL at 6'5" and 310 pounds. Only time will tell of he turns out to be the ideal athlete to protect Cam Newton's blindside and keep the Panthers' quarterback out of the operating room again next year. If he is then the price paid to trade up for him will have been more than worth it.
