Panthers go RB, take Christian McCaffrey at 8th overall


  • The Carolina Panthers took RB Christian McCaffrey with their first-round pick, eighth overall, Thursday.
  • The Panthers add another explosive player to an already impressive offense.
  • McCaffrey was the best receiving back in the draft, and he totaled 100 catches over the past three seasons.
  • McCaffrey is a matchup nightmare who can line up in the backfield, out wide or in the slot, and also adds immediate value as a punt and kick returner.
  • The Stanford product finished with a career-high 3.3 rushing yards after contact in 2016.
