The Carolina Panthers had seven selections in the 2020 NFL Draft and selected some solid talent. The Panthers opted to stick on the defensive side of the ball for the draft’s entirety and selected three defensive linemen and four members to play in the secondary.
The Panthers drafted Auburn defensive tackle, Derrick Brown, with the seventh-overall selection and he will look to be the focal point of a rather weak Carolina defense.
The Panthers also drafted Yetur Gross-Matos to team up with Brian Burns and Derrick Brown on the defensive line. The Panthers added some defensive tackle depth with the selection of Bravvion Roy later in the draft as well.
The Panthers also did their best to amp up their secondary with the additions of Jeremy Chin (safety), Troy Pride Jr (cornerback), Kenny Robinson (safety), and Stantley Thomas-Oliver (cornerback).
I feel they could have acquired better players with their picks and ultimately the picks probably won’t change the fact that they’re going to finish fourth in the ultra-competitive NFC South.
