Carolina Panthers

Perfect draft pair: LSU RB Leonard Fournette (Round 1, pick 8); East Carolina WR Zay Jones (Round 2, pick 40)

Brooks on Fournette: I (would) want to make sure the Panthers get back their identity as a tough, physical, blue-collar football team. This is a guy who is a hard-hat-and-lunchpail running back. A physical, aggressive, violent finisher of his runs.

Jeremiah on Jones: He makes a lot of sense for this team -- he gives them another weapon in the passing game. There's a lot of underneath stuff on tape, but then you go to the Senior Bowl and see him get over the top.

On the Move the Sticks podcast, former NFL scouts Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks break down the latest news and action around the league from a scout's perspective, alongside NFL player personnel executives.
