Panthers add to offense with early draft picks


CHARLOTTE, NC (WWAY) — The Panthers started the NFL Draft by getting Cam Newton some help. Clearly that was the plan for night number two as they added another play maker for the offense.
With the first pick of the night the Panthers added another major weapon to the mix by drafting wide receiver Curtis Samuel from Ohio State. The dual threat led the Big Ten in all purpose yards per game and scored a team leading 15 touchdowns for the Buckeyes last season.
Later in the second round the Panthers help Cam Newton out again, this time with Taylor Moton, offensive guard from Western Michigan. He’s a four year starter for the Broncos in college and has a chance to be a reliable starter for the Panthers.
In the third round, the Panthers traded up to get Texas A&M defensive end, Daeshon Hall. He was projected to go in the second round and the Panthers get help to replace Kony Ealy on defense.
