Panthers expected to address defense on Day 2 of National Football League draft

Carolina traded one of its two third-round picks to the Green Bay on Friday.

The Panthers will look to continue improving the roster in the draft.

Hurney said having the first pick of the third day of the draft is a "valuable spot" to be as they have all night to think about the pick.

"I would say run after the catch, right off the bat", Moore said breathlessly via phone call after being selected by the Panthers.

The New England Patriots did their usually wheeling and dealing and land at the 56th pick, their first in the second round, and took Florida cornerback Duke Dawson.

The Jacksonville native produced 187 tackles (8.5 for loss), two interceptions, seven pass breakups and two sacks during his three-year tenure with the Tar Heels.

- The Carolina Panthers rounded out their 2018 draft class Saturday, picking up four more defenders and a tight end. The 6-foot, 237-pound linebacker is likely to play on special teams as a rookie.

In his three years at LSU, Jackson showed more than just athleticism.

We're nearly done, here but the Panthers still have one more pick to go in eight spots. He played outside cornerback, nickel cornerback and spent some time at free safety in order to get LSU's best defensive backs on the field.
