  • Carolina Panthers sign five 2017 draft picks

Five undrafted rookies also signed Thursday - Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware, Mississippi State wide receiver Fred Ross, Florida defensive end Bryan Cox, Charlotte 49ers wide receiver Austin Duke and Notre Dame cornerback Cole Luke. Last season, he anchored an offensive line that helped pave the way for an offense that ranked 24th in the FBS in rushing and 11th in fewest sacks allowed. In particular, quarterback Cam Newton wasn't able to repeat his magic from 2015, and Carolina went 6-10 to finish in last place in the division. "Once you learn it, earn it", said McCaffrey, who will get a lot of work as a slot receiver. "My family is really, really close and I love him".

However, with the additions of McCaffrey and Samuel alongside mainstays Newton, Jonathan Stewart, and Greg Olsen, the Panthers have a chance to return to their offensive glory from two seasons ago and get back on track.

McCaffrey will have one more practice with the team before having to miss some of the Panthers OTA because Stanford is still in school. All rookies drafted sign four-year contracts, and after that, teams have the option to pick up a fifth year for first-round picks. "This was a big learning day". "All the questions are in the meeting room so when you come out here you can play fast".

"That'll be a blast, " McCaffrey said.

Because Stanford operates on the quarter grading system, McCaffrey isn't allowed to rejoin the Panthers after this weekend until early June, according to NCAA rules.

All drafted rookies sign four-year contracts. He was so excited about this moment that it hadn't fully sunk in that on Thursday night he became the first first-round pick of the 2017 draft to sign his rookie deal.
