CHARLOTTE — Once they finally decided to take someone, the Panthers began addressing their need at wide receiver

With their eventual second-round pick (59th overall), the Panthers chose LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr..

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Marshall gives them some long-term cover at receiver, with Robby Anderson entering the final year of his contract.

Marshall tallied nearly 1,600 receiving yards and had 23 receiving touchdowns at LSU from 2018-20. He was a part of the national championship squad in 2019, working with current Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady.

"Joe [Brady] wrote him up like anybody else," head coach Matt Rhule said. "I mean, he's a player that Fris[man] Jackson, our receiver coach, Joe, they had ranked at the top of the board. I think he was the second receiver taken today. To me, he's a big outside guy. I think the biggest thing Joe said is he could play outside and inside which is really paramount in the things that we try to do."
