Panthers sign first-round pick Christian McCaffrey, 4 others

Wide receiver Curtis Samuel, offensive tackle Taylor Moton, defensive end Daeshon Hall, cornerback Corn Elder, fullback Alex Armah and kicker Harrison Butker all should be safe.

Samuel joins first-round pick Christian McCaffrey as offensive additions created to expand the options for the Panthers on that side of the ball.

Christian McCaffrey is officially a Carolina Panther.

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

The 20-year-old McCaffrey sounded like a pro when speaking with the media following his first practice, saying all the right things. That must be decided during the spring prior to the player's fourth season.

But although he doesn't remember Ed McCaffrey winning three Super Bowls — one with the 49ers and two with the Broncos — the Panthers' rookie said having a father playing in the league will make his own transition to the NFL that much easier.

Is Samsung planning dual cameras for the Galaxy Note 8?
The smartphones also come with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, and support 256GB expandable storage through a microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is priced at $720 (around Rs 46,700) and Galaxy S8+ at $840 (around Rs 54,500) in the US.

The Panthers picked Samuel with the 40th overall selection in the second round.

Moton was the 64th overall pick out of Western Michigan, where he set a school record for most career starts. Last year, he had 13 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks for Texas A&M.

After announcing that they'd signed three players on Thursday night, the team added two more to the list on Friday morning. Last season, Armah became the first player in Gulf South Conference history to win all-conference honors on both offense and defense.

All drafted rookies sign four-year deals, but first-round picks have a fifth-year team option.

Undrafted rookie linebacker Ben Boulware, wide receiver Fred Ross, defensive end Bryan Cox, wide receiver Austin Duke and cornerback Cole Luke also signed with the Panthers.
