2021 NFL Draft: The pick Panthers failed to make and the one selection Carolina absolutely crushed 🏈
Matt Rhule saw enough of Teddy Bridgewater for a season to make a change at quarterback for the Carolina Panthers. Carolina struck fast to find a young quarterback this offseason, trading a 2021 sixth-round pick along with second- and fourth-round selections in 2022 in exchange for Sam Darnold. For 2021 at least, Darnold will be Carolina's starting quarterback. The Panthers were competitive in Rhule's first season as head coach, bringing an exciting offense to the table under offensive coordinator Joe Brady. Fourth-quarter struggles at the quarterback position forced Carolina to make a change, leaving the Panthers with a lot of questions heading into 2021. Having Christian McCaffrey back healthy will answer a lot of them.
