Jonathon Brooks is heading to Carolina hoping to put his ACL injury in the rearview mirror.

Jonathon Brooks has been selected by the Panthers with the 46th pick overall in the 2nd round of the 2024 NFL Draft. The Texas Longhorn will look to shed early injury concerns as he gains footing in Charlotte.


Jonathon Brooks’ fleet feet help him work on both inside and outside runs. Brooks is decisive and quick in tight spaces with his decision making which help him break off longer runs. Brooks is sure handed, offering receiving value from the backfield which the Panthers will covet as they work to expand their offensive output in 2024. In 2023 over the span of 10 games, Jonathon Brooks had 1,139 rushing yards, 25 receptions for 286 yards, and had 11 total touchdowns.


Jonathon Brooks had a pre-draft closing ADP of 117 overall in UnderDog fantasy drafts and is currently our 3rd ranked rookie running back. The immediate obstacle to Brooks being the number 1 running back in this class is whether he can return for the start of the regular season while also showing his prior form displayed pre-ACL injury. This is a rare year where you can select the best running back in the class at a slight discount. Click wisely!
