WR Xavier Legette Selected No.32 by the Carolina Panthers
2 months ago

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.

Xavier Legette Flashes Potential at 2024 NFL Combine
4 months ago

The former South Carolina wideout showed why he could be a potential steal on Day 2 of April’s NFL Draft.

Standing at 6’1’’ and weighing in at 221 pounds, Xavier Legette sizes up fairly well. The South Carolina native only bettered his cause with a blistering 4.39-second 40-yard dash and a vertical jump of 40 inches. Renowned for his strength and contested-catch ability, Legette proved to be a reliable safety blanket for fellow combine prospect Spencer Rattler and the Gamecocks offense in 2023. With strong hands, a knack for the spectacular, and terrific straight-line speed, Legette figures to make an impact on an NFL roster – and your fantasy team – as early as this coming fall.

 

 

 

While Xavier Legette struggles at times against press coverage and isn’t exactly the most polished route runner, he can become a reliable backup and eventual starter with the right coaching. Having also shown explosiveness in broad jumping ten-and-a-half feet, Legette cannot be overlooked by fantasy managers in all formats, particularly in dynasty leagues. This past season was Legette’s first amassing over 30 targets, so there isn’t a lot of tread on his tires, either.
