The first ever virtual NFL draft is now over. 255 young men had their dreams realized last weekend as they were drafted into the NFL. The draft was split into three days as round one took place on April 23, rounds two and three on April 24, and rounds four through seven on April 25. Before the draft, the NFL had a test run and many problems arose, but the real draft went on without any hiccups. Fans did get to see some things we would have never seen before, like Patriots head coach Bill Belichick’s dog making a few picks for New England. Goofs and gaffs aside, it is time to break down what teams improved the most and what teams did not.

During the Panthers’ six-game losing streak, senior guard Jack Kahoun has been out with a lower body injury. Throughout the season, Kahoun has played a large role in the Panthers’ offensive success, especially late in games. Without Kahoun, the Panthers have struggled at times to get their offense going, something that was evident late in the game against Yorkville.
