Panthers’ Controversial Trade Secures 1st Round Pick in Last Night’s NFL Draft

The 2024 NFL Draft kicked off in Detroit last night, where the Carolina Panthers did another shimmy move to secure a first round pick for the second year in a row.

Initially without a first-round selection, the Panthers traded the Buffalo Bills their first pick of the second round (#33 overall) and pick #141 for the Bills’ last pick of the first round (#32 overall) and pick #200.

This maneuver allowed the Panthers them to draft Xavier Legette, a prominent wide receiver from USC, who had a standout senior season with 71 receptions, 1,200 yards, and seven touchdowns.

Legette’s dynamic playmaking ability, which includes receiving, jet sweeps, and kick returns, adds a versatile weapon to the Panthers’ offense. His exceptional blend of size (6-foot-1, 221 pounds) and speed (4.39-second 40-yard dash) distinguishes him from other receivers and offers a fresh offensive asset to relieve pressure from quarterback Bryce Young, who is entering his second NFL season.

What do you think about the trade and the pick?
