Carolina Panthers

We’re closing in on the 2021 NFL Draft here on Dueling Mocks with Nick Wilson and Will Palaszczuk. This week, we’re focusing solely on the Carolina Panthers with a seven-round full team mock draft.

The Carolina Panthers shook up several NFL Draft boards by trading for Jets' QB Sam Darnold earlier this month. While the team won't need to take a gamble on a quarterback with the eighth overall pick, they're likely to add some depth on the offensive line to protect the former Southern Cal prospect.

Welcome to another edition of Dueling Mocks with Nick Wilson and Will Palaszczuk. With just two weeks to go until the NFL Draft, we wanted to highlight a group that doesn’t nearly get talked about enough…the quarterbacks.  This week we’re doing a QB Mock Draft which focuses exclusively on this year’s top 8 ranked quarterbacks […]

  The Panthers’ newly acquired QB Sam Darnold spoke to the media Monday about his departure from the New York Jets and his excitement to get going in Carolina. Darnold admitted it was tough moving on from the team that drafted him and even tougher with uncertainty the past three months while the New York […]

    It’s looking like Panthers Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will likely end up somewhere else, after the Panthers traded for New York Jets QB Sam Darnold on Monday. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports, “multiple teams” are interested in trading for Bridgewater. Rapoport said during a phone call between Panther GM Scott Fitterer and Bridgewater, […]

Dueling Mocks Version 2.0 drops with just over three weeks of this year’s NFL Draft. This week we had planned to focus on a different area of the draft but the Panthers threw us a curve ball by trading for Jets starting quarterback Sam Darnold. So this week’s Dueling Mock will feature Nick & Will’s […]

The Carolina Panthers trade for Sam Darnold in return for a 2021 sixth-round pick and second fourth-round pick in 2022, ESPN reports. The Panthers had been looking to upgrade from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater since the end of last season. Carolina had offered Bridgewater to the Detroit Lions for Matthew Stafford, however that deal did not […]

8. Carolina Panthers Will: Rashawn Slater, OL, Northwestern: With all of the consensus top four quarterbacks off the board, Carolina goes its next biggest need, a franchise-changing offensive lineman. Slater brings in the flexibility that Scott Fitterer & Matt Rhule seem to crave in their first offseason working together, and finally gives the Panthers some stability with their biggest question mark entering the offseason. While this pick could very well be Mac Jones, I’m a believer in Joe Person of The Athletic’s latest report which states the Panthers’ lack of infatuation with the QB talent beyond Lawrence & Wilson. Nick: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State: This may be wishful thinking but unless a trade up happens ahead of Carolina, I think there is a decent chance Trey Lance, Justin Fields or both are there at 8. BEST POSSIBLE SCENARIO. The over analysis on Justin Fields around the NFL has reached embarrassing levels. He checks every physical box you want and has some Cam Newton to his game.

On Monday’s edition of the Clubhouse, Kyle got into a conversation he recently had with former Panthers Safety Roman Harper about who should be the players you set off-limits in trade talks for Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson as Kyle wanted texters to weigh in on the matter as well as Smoke. Smoke told Kyle […]

The NFL has seen a lot of players, primarily big-name quarterbacks, expressing their displeasure with their respective front offices this offseason, leading to some questioning if this will become a long-term trend in the NFL similar to the NBA. Earlier today, Nick Wilson sat down with former NFL Vice President of Player Personnel Tony Softli […]
