New Panther: Armanti Edwards Interview
With the 26th pick in the 3rd round (89th overall), the Carolina Panthers selected Appalachain State QB Armanti Edwards.
However, Edwards is expected to play WR / KR / PR and maybe even in some wildcat packages for Carolina.
The Panthers acquired the pick from from Arizona via New England by trading their 2nd round pick for 2011.
Edwards recently discussed being drafted by Carolina:
On being drafted in third round
My agent told me anywhere between third round and fifth round and my best chances were in the fourth round, so I was anticipating the fourth round. I had Carolina in my mind, but my agent told me the teams that showed the most interest more than likely weren’t the ones that would get me. It’s kind of surprising.
