Panthers add more speed on Day 2, draft slot receiver Samuel

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers continued to upgrade their offensive team speed, selecting slot receiver Curtis Samuel from Ohio State with the first of two second round draft picks Friday nights.

The 5-foot-11, 196-pound Samuel played running back and wide receiver for the Buckeyes and led Big Ten in all-purpose yards. He ran for 771 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging 8 yards per carry. He also impressed with his route running, catching 74 passes for 865 yards and seven TDs to lead the Big Ten in all-purpose yards.

Curtis said on a conference call the Panthers told him they plan to use him as a slot receiver.
