The Carolina Panthers continue to give help on their offense as they head into the 2017 NFL season.
With the first two picks being play makers on the offensive side of the ball, the Panthers continue the theme, but move it to the offensive line. With the last pick in the second-round (64th overall), the Panthers select Western Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Moton.
This comes to a little surprise as they didn’t go with defense, but they do have a need on the offensive line. With Moton, he brings a strong frame to help protect Cam Newton.

Per Pro Football Focus, he might be listed as a tackle right now, but he might move to guard in the future. He is a very solid offensive lineman as he wins more than he loses in the trenches of the line.
I would expect the Panthers to go defense with the next few picks!
