While the Panthers are currently looking for a new starting quarterback, Sam Darnold hasn’t wavered.
“I can’t control it, I know that,” Darnold said. “But I’m confident enough in myself to say, ‘I know I’m a good quarterback and I know I can do it in the league. Get ahead. I’ve proven it’.”
“I also know that even if something happens, there will be teams that want me in.”
Panthers general manager Scott Fitterer previously said the starting quarterback is uncertain. After that, the Panthers also tried to trade for Deshaun Watson, offering up to three first-round picks and at least one player with other round picks.
The Panthers, who hold the No. 6 pick this year, may also add fresh blood to the draft. They have gone to the college’s separate career day to see Kenny Pickett (Kenny Pickett, Malik Willis) , the performance of Matt Corral et al.
