Panthers Would Feel ‘Comfortable’ Taking At QB At No. 6

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers general manager Scott Fitterer has informed current starter Sam Darnold the team plans to add another quarterback soon.

Whether that will be with the No. 6 pick in the draft or via trade for a veteran remains to be seen.

While this is not considered a strong quarterback class, Fitterer said the Panthers would feel comfortable taking one in the first round.

Fitterer said trading for a veteran remains an option but that likely wouldn’t happen until after the NFL draft.

Darnold struggled last season, going 4-7 as the starter with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
