Panthers awarded third-round compensatory pick

CHARLOTTE – The Panthers have been awarded a third-round compensatory pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Carolina now holds the No. 100 overall pick based on an NFL formula that considers net losses in free agency the previous year. All told, the NFL awarded 32 compensatory picks to 15 teams Friday, with the Panthers receiving the fifth-highest compensatory pick among the seven third-round selections awarded. The Panthers' biggest loss in free agency was guard Andrew Norwell, who signed with the Jaguars last spring.

The Panthers now hold two picks in the third round of the draft, which begins with the first round on April 25 and run for three days.

Carolina is set to select 16th in the first round, 15th in the second round (No. 47 overall), 14th (No. 77 overall) and now 37th (No. 100) in the third round, 13th in the fourth round (No. 115), 16th in the fifth round (No. 154) and 15th in the sixth round (No. 187). The Panthers don't have a seventh-round selection, having traded it to the Bills in 2017.
