Draft 2017

Pick No.8

Selected By: Carolina Panthers

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 8 (8)

Pick Analysis: If it's possible to have a quiet 1,639 rushing yards, McCaffrey did it this season. Despite being hampered by an injury midway through the year, he still put up numbers worthy of first-team all-conference and Associated Press second-team All-American honors. McCaffrey decided not to play in his team's bowl game due to injury concerns. His sophomore season was his best, however. The son of former NFL receiver "Easy Ed" McCaffrey was a consensus All-American, Heisman Trophy finalist, Associated Press and Pac-12 Player of the Year in 2015. He set a NCAA record with 3,864 all-purpose yards, ranking second in the FBS with 2,019 rushing yards, along with 645 receiving and 1,070 on kickoff returns. McCaffrey was the only FBS player to lead his team in rushing and receiving yards, and won the Paul Hornung Award as the nation's most versatile player. That performance was really not a surprise given the talent he flashed in his freshman year (551 offensive yards on 59 touches) and in high school (two-time Colorado Gatorade High School Player of the Year, state records in scoring, touchdowns, all-purpose yardage).
