Carolina Panthers 2023 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Carolina Panthers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Carolina Panthers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Panthers:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

7. Tyler Van Dyke, QB, Miami (FL)

After D'Eriq King went down with injury last season, Van Dyke ignited the Hurricanes' offense and put his name on the NFL radar. There are still a number of things NFL scouts want to see on film this upcoming season for him to be a first-rounder, but he has the potential to get there.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

7. Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon

Ever since Luke Kuechly's retirement, the Panthers have been missing a true impact player at the second level of their defense. Sewell is big, athletic, and has all the potential to be worthy of a top-10 pick.

Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)

4. D.J. Uiagalelei, QB, Clemson

This highly rated QB struggled last season on a bad Clemson team, but the tools are all there for the 6-foot-4, 240-pounder to be one of the best pro prospects, in the Daunte Culpepper mold.

Here is where the Carolina Panthers rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Panthers in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

Player who benefited most from draft: QB Sam Darnold

This could go either way. Darnold benefited in that Carolina made left tackle Ikem Ekwonu the sixth pick, strengthening an already rebuilt line that gave up 52 sacks a year ago. Darnold is best when not under pressure. At the same time, the Panthers traded back into the third round for Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral, who will become the fan favorite to start if Darnold falls back into habits that have haunted him through his first four NFL seasons. This is Darnold's job, but only as long as he produces. -- David Newton

NFL.com -- Rank: 32

Good for the Panthers. As the results of the draft confirmed, talent evaluators had no affection for this class of quarterbacks, so credit Carolina brass for resisting the temptation to fit a square peg into a round hole with the sixth overall pick. The Panthers instead focused on another glaring weakness at that spot, selecting Ikem Ekwonu, a tackle with All-Pro potential. With one sensible move in the can, the Panthers made another by stopping Matt Corral's slide late in the third round. Barring a move that brings a veteran to town (Baker Mayfield? Jimmy Garoppolo?), Carolina could be ready to bite down hard and give Sam Darnold one more chance. If he flops, the team has the window to give the intriguing rookie from Ole Miss an early look.
