CHARLOTTE – The Carolina Panthers have signed first-round draft choice wide receiver D.J. Moore, the club announced Monday. Carolina has now signed all eight of its 2018 draft choices.
Moore, who was selected by Carolina with the 24th overall pick, played collegiately Maryland. He earned Big Ten Receiver of the Year honors in 2017 after setting a single-season school record for receptions with 80.
Despite playing with four different quarterbacks throughout the season due to injuries, Moore posted 1,033 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, becoming just the third wide receiver in school history to post a 1,000-yard receiving season and the first since fellow Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith (2010).
In his three seasons at Maryland, Moore started 35 of 37 games played and finished fifth in school history in career receptions (146), sixth in receiving yards (2,027) and fourth in receiving touchdowns (17).
