Panthers get all 7 draft picks under contract

Panthers sign Christian McCaffrey and other rookies to deals

Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman spent time with Ed McCaffrey in Denver and describes him as a true pro.

The former Stanford running back holds the FBS all-purpose yardage record for a season previously held by Barry Sanders with 3,864 yards.

It's no secret that the Carolina Panthers in 2016 were completely different from the 2015 team that made it to the Super Bowl. Still, the Panthers were the first team to get all of their draft picks under contract.

Moton, from Western Michigan, was selected by Carolina with the 64th overall choice. He started every game during his college career for the Broncos. Last year, he had 13 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks for Texas A&M.

The Panthers chose Armah with the 192nd overall pick in the sixth round.

However, after the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement established a rookie wage scale, the signing process for National Football League draft picks became a formality, for the most part.

Carolina also signed its five undrafted rookies on Thursday: linebacker Ben Boulware, wide receiver Fred Ross, defensive end Bryan Cox, wide receiver Austin Duke and cornerback Cole Luke.

However, with each of the above listed players now a part of the team's 90-man roster, only three available positions for undrafted free agents and try-out players are open.

Armah became the first player in Gulf South Conference history last season to win all-conference on both offense and defense.

The Panthers have not yer agreed to deals with cornerback Corn Elder (fifth round) and kicker Harrison Butker (seventh round).

The Carolina Panthers signed two more 2017 draft picks - second-round wide receiver Curtis Samuel and third-round defensive end Daeshon Hall - ahead of Friday's rookie minicamp.
