Panthers ranked dead last in post-draft ESPN power rankings

Player who benefited most from draft: QB Sam Darnold This could go either way. Darnold benefited in that Carolina made left tackle Ikem Ekwonu the sixth pick, strengthening an already rebuilt line that gave up 52 sacks a year ago. Darnold is best when not under pressure. At the same time, the Panthers traded back into the third round for Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral, who will become the fan favorite to start if Darnold falls back into habits that have haunted him through his first four NFL seasons. This is Darnold's job, but only as long as he produces. -- David Newton
I'd like to argue against this, but the uncertainty of the QB position and who will replace Reddick's production on defense is concerning as we enter into season 3 of the 5 year rebuild plan. Do you feel slighted that we were dropped from spot 28 post-free agency? Most of the teams that jumped us did have good drafts.
