This is where the Carolina Panthers absolutely had to take a position of need here.
With cornerback Daryl Worley getting shipped off to the Eagles in exchange for wideout Torrey Smith, there was a big hole in the secondary for Ron Rivera. Top corners came flying off the board in round two as expected, but the Panthers were still able to grab one of the underrated players in this draft.

The front office is surely checking off all the boxes here after addressing a need in the receiving corp by taking a top prospect in D.J. Moore in Round 1. Now they'll add another speedster on the roster who blazed at the combine with an insane 4.32 40-yard dash.
