The Carolina Panthers have selected WR Xavier Legette with the No.32 pick in the NFL Draft

The Carolina Panthers traded back into the first round to select Xavier Legette with the final selection on day one of the NFL Draft. Legette will now pair with Diontae Johnson and 2023 second round pick Jonathan Mingo in what should be a much-improved unit in 2024. Weighing 221 pounds and running a 4.39 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, he possesses a rare blend of size and speed. The Panthers were in need of a deep threat as well making this a nice fit.

 

 

There are concerns about his route running ability, but this is the proper ranger for a big play threat with a lot of potential. Leggette actually profiles very similarly to Jonthan Mingo so both players we’ll likely be competing for the same targets. While Diontae Johnson is cemented as the top target in the offense, the second spot is still up for grabs. The Carolina offense should be much improved as a whole though in 2024 and there is potential for multiple fantasy relevant receiving options.
