Carolina Panthers start their rookie camp Friday. A mini-camp is a short camp held by the team to get the players that were drafted familiar with the way the differences in play fro the NFL. Also gives the new draft picks time to learn new plays and for the coaches to evaluate them. In the camp many of the athletes already on the team will attend as well.
The NFL Draft is now complete and the Panthers have picked up seven new players. In the first round they picked up Vernon Butler a defensive tackle out of Louisiana Tech. James Bradberry a cornerback from Samford University was the Panthers second round pick. In the third round, Daryl Worley, another cornerback was draft from West Virginia. Carolina traded their fourth round pick and did not have a sixth, but choose a cornerback from Oklahoma, Zack Sanchez. In the seventh and final pick Beau Sandland a tight end out of Montana State was chosen. Some are saying that the loss of Josh Norman is the reason for so many cornerback picks during this season’s draft.
