Carolina Panthers Undrafted Free Agents: Need-to-Know for Every Signee
Associated Press
Robert Lester was an undrafted free agent last year. He signed with Carolina and made the final roster.

The Carolina Panthers wrapped up the 2014 NFL draft and came away with some players who will fill their needs and find a way to contribute when training camp opens. Dave Gettleman did not shy away from taking a player even if he played a position that did not need to be addressed.  

Carolina made a small trade to move up early in the fifth round, and it only cost the pick later in that same round as well as the team's final pick in the seventh.

How this year's draft class pans out remains to be seen. For now, the Panthers can move on with the offseason process and get ready for September.


Draft Recap

Round 1: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

Round 2: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

Round 3: Trai Turner, OG, LSU

Round 4: Tre Boston, SS, North Carolina

Round 5: Bene Benwikere, CB, San Jose State

Round 6: Tyler Gaffney, RB, Stanford


Carolina made some good headway last year when it came to signing undrafted free agents. Robert Lester and Melvin White are two players who signed with Carolina after the draft and found their way onto the roster. Each held his own and made plays when it mattered.

Gettleman would like to get the same kind of results that he did last year, but it wouldn't be a bad thing to have more than two undrafted free agents emerge as solid players on the team. After all, gems can be found anywhere.

Much like the draft grades slideshow, this will continue to track, update and evaluate each undrafted free agent that the Panthers sign.  

The slides represent players who signed with Carolina immediately following the draft, as reported by the Charlotte Observer. Other signed players will be updated accordingly.
