The Panthers also added five wide receivers, adding to the position group after they were unable to find any depth and a return opportunity during the draft.
These recipients include Virginia’s Ra’Shaun Henry, Eastern Washington’s Talolo Limu-Jones, Florida State’s Andrew Parchment, Miami’s Charleston Rambo and Utah State’s Derek Wright.
They also signed three linebackers to add depth to that position, including Illinois’ Khalan Tolson, Boston College’s Isaiah Graham-Mobley and Fresno State’s Arron Mosby.
The rest of the class includes North Dakota State tight-end Josh Babicz, Penn State safety Drew Hartlaub, Penn State running back John Lovett and Kentucky defensive tackle Marquan McCall.
Like their draft class, there was a great emphasis on speed and physical characteristics.
Hartlaub, an excellent special teams player at Penn State, ran 4.22 seconds 40 on their pro day this spring. It’s faster than Kalon Barnes from the seventh round, who was the fastest player at this year’s scouting combination with 4.23. Tolson ran 4.45 on Illinois’ 235-pound pro-day, which would have placed him in the top three of the linebackers at the combine this year as well.
The Panthers are holding a rookie mini-camp on the 13th-15th. May.
