Where Do the Panthers Sit in the NFL Power Rankings Following the Draft?

Depending on who you ask, the Panthers really made the most of their limited picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. The way I see it? They got one surefire franchise player in NC State offensive lineman Ikem Ekwonu and after that, a bunch of boom or bust guys. 

When you only make six picks in the draft, you have to hit on your early picks and draft for potential in day three. Well, the Panthers didn’t have a second or third rounder heading into the draft but managed to trade back up into the third to select Ole Miss quarterback, Matt Corral. The picks of LB Brandon Smith (Penn State), DE Amaré Barno (Virginia Tech), OL Cade Mays (Tennessee), and CB Kalon Barnes (Baylor) are not picks that are going to help this team immediately. Smith, Barno, and Mays could develop into starters over time, but to expect that in their rookie season would be unfair.
