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 Robbie 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."
Marshall played at LSU from 2018-20, posting 23 receiving touchdowns and nearly 1,600 receiving yards.
