A complete list of Carolina Panthers picks in the 2022 NFL Draft can be found below.

Round 1


Carolina Panthers

Ickey Ekwonu

OT/G, North Carolina State

The Panthers chose to pass on a quarterback and that decision was made easier by having their pick between Ekwonu and Evan Neal. Scott Fitterer circles back to address Carolina’s biggest need by looking right down the road to Raleigh for a strong, powerful but also very athletic force to form bookends with Taylor Moton. The Panthers’ QB course of action this year might be instead adding veteran competition for Sam Darnold.

Grade: A

Round 3

PICK #30

Carolina Panthers

Matt Corral

QB, Mississippi

The Panthers weren’t in position to catch a falling Ridder or Willis with their limited draft capital but Corral fell into their range to trade up here. The arm and athletic upside was worth it to give them a rookie option to compete to push Sam Darnold.

Grade: B
