Panthers sign first-round pick McCaffrey

The Carolina Panthers have signed 2017 first-round draft choice running back Christian McCaffrey, second-round draft choice tackle Taylor Moton and sixth-round draft choice fullback Alex Armah, the team announced Thursday. At Stanford, McCaffrey broke Barry Sanders' single-season all-purpose yards record in 2015, totaling 3,864 yards.

Christian McCaffrey is officially a Carolina Panther.

Last season, McCaffrey led FBS with 211.6 all-purpose yards per game and ranked fourth in average rushing yards per game (145.7).

"He and Samuel (Curtis Samuel- Panthers 2nd round pick) look different", said Panthers head coach Ron Rivera. He played out of the slot and the backfield at Ohio State and averaged 7.5 yards per carry and almost 12 yards per catch during his time in Columbus.

Moton - selected by Carolina with the 64th overall pick - was one of two second round selections by the Panthers. He started every game during his college career for the Broncos.

Wladimir Klitschko Vows That He Will Be Back From Defeat
He's back in training and he's getting into shape and that's good for boxing, so I hope that he comes back to his very best. That's what I said to Klitschko: for me this was not a defining fight. "He showed he can recover from taking big shots".

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Christian McCaffrey was only 4 years old when his father retired from the National Football League following a distinguished 13-year professional career as a wide receiver. He was so excited about this moment that it hadn't fully sunk in that on Thursday night he became the first first-round pick of the 2017 draft to sign his rookie deal.

Needless to say, after missing the playoffs, the Panthers had a lot of questions to answer in this year's draft, and that's what they did. But last season, they were out of sorts on both offense and defense.

The team also signed five undrafted rookies including linebacker Ben Boulware, wide receiver Fred Ross, defensive end Bryan Cox, wide receiver Austin Duke and cornerback Cole Luke.
