The Carolina Panthers wrapped up their draft last weekend and jumped right into the free-agent pool once the final pick was made. A week after the first round of the draft ended, the Panthers signed 13 undrafted free agents. Some may find a spot on the final roster. Most will either be cut or placed on the scout team.
Carolina signed six offensive players, six on defense and a kicker.
While the odds are low for any of them making the depth chart let alone cracking a starting position, a lot of these signings are for the purpose of training-camp battles. As the old adage goes, "competition breeds excellence."
These players may have been undrafted, but that doesn't mean we should write them off. Each one should bring their own style to the team, and if they are lucky, could find themselves suiting up each Sunday.
In order to best understand what each signing represents, it warrants breaking them down and grading the signing. Here are the grades for each of the 2013 Carolina Panthers' undrafted free-agent signings.
