Charlotte N.C- The Carolina Panthers had issues on defense and they certainly helped the fans breathe a sigh of relief with there moves in free agency along with there draft. They should be very pleased at who they got in the first round considering they were picking in the bottom half, and they got a top 10 pick in LE Kyran Forney. He is a big dude listed at 6’6 293, he ran 4.81 40 and added 37 bench reps, so he has speed and power to get to the QB, which should help a struggling secondary from getting burned to often.
In the fifth round they were able to get someone that they had there eye on all draft long, he has potential to turn into a very good corner in this league they feel. Richey Sippio, 5’10 205 lbs, he ran a 4.40 40 yard dash and has a 31.0 vert jump. He’s pretty good all around right now, but could work on his awareness when the ball is in the air as well as his man coverage skills. Along with 1st round pick Forney it’s looking promising that the defense is on the right track to turn things around.
