Panthers Snag Christian McCaffrey With 8th Pick

Christian McCaffrey had his best year two seasons ago at Stanford, breaking Barry Sanders’ NCAA single-season record for all-purpose yardage. So what led up to Carolina’s pick? As expected, the Browns took defensive end Myles Garrett at number one. Then the Bears flip flopped spots with San Francisco so they could select North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Also, a running back linked to the Panthers, Leonard Fournette was off the board at four.
