CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers enter the final day of the NFL draft Saturday with six picks thanks to a trade by general manager Marty Hurney.
Carolina traded one of its two third-round picks to the Green Bay on Friday night and picked up the first pick of the fourth round (101st overall) and a fifth-round selection. The Panthers have one pick in the fourth round, two in the fifth, one in the sixth and two in the seventh.
Hurney said having the first pick of the third day of the draft is a "valuable spot" to be as they have all night to think about the pick.
Carolina still has holes to fill at defensive end and guard, and it's possible they could try to land a backup quarterback for Cam Newton.
