Sam Darnold. Not the answer. Good to know; we'll make a note of that. As a result of disasters at both quarterback and offensive line, the Panthers had their worst offensive DVOA since 2010; a passing attack that simply couldn't give players time to throw or receivers chances to catch accurate passes. Perhaps it's Matt Corral season in Carolina, though a wiser plan of action may be to draft an offensive lineman with the Panthers' only pick in the first three rounds, and bring in a veteran stopgap for a year at the passer position. Hey, Teddy Bridgewater may be available... --  Bryan Knowles
