What was the Trade?
The Carolina Panthers have traded up 5 spots with the Seattle Seahawks to draft Jeremy Chinn. The Panthers has received the 64th overall pick, while they give the Seahawks, picks 69 and 148. Moving up 5 spots brings interest. Who is the player and why trade up 5 spots? What is the purpose of moving up the 5 spots? The Panthers must have feared that another team was looking to either trade up for this player or the team was already in front of the Panthers and they needed to jump in front of them to get their player.
After the trade, the Panthers select Jeremy Chinn, the Safety from Southern Illinois is the pick for the Panthers at 64 to end the second round. Jeremy Chinn has the versatility to play both Safety and Cornerback for the Panthers. Help in the secondary is a big need for the Panthers. Having Tre Boston returning to play Safety and the signing of Juston Burris, makes the belief that Chinn will play opposite of Donte Jackson at the cornerback position. Donte Jackson is the only cornerback on the Panthers roster currently, after losing James Bradberry to the New York Giants in Free Agency and Ross Cockrell still a Free Agent.
