The 2018 NFL Draft is complete and the Carolina Panthers have already landed a few coveted undrafted free agents. NFL teams start trying to sign these UDFAs the second the draft ends, and sometimes even sooner, and the moves became official this week.
While most UDFAs end up being little more than camp bodies, there are players that make the 53-man roster each season. The prospects all went undrafted for a reason, but they all have the potential to make it in the NFL in some role. And sometimes, teams strike gold with an Arian Foster or Tony Romo.
We have every player the Panthers have signed below.
Kyle Allen, QB, Houston
Reggie Bonnafon, RB, Louisville
Kyle Bosch, OL, West Virginia
Chris Frey, Jr., LB, Michigan State
Taylor Hearn, G, Clemson
Brendan Mahon, OL, Penn State
Tracy Sprinkle, DL, Ohio State
It's a very small group for the Panthers.
Perhaps the most notable player on the list is Houston quarterback Kyle Allen, who was a five-star prospect coming out of high school and started his career at Texas A&M, where he started a number of games during his freshmen and sophomore seasons before transferring. With longtime backup Derek Anderson still a free agent, Allen has a good chance to earn a roster spot with a strong camp.
Reggie Bonnafon was also a major contributor at Louisville, who started his career as a quarterback before switching to wide receiver and then running back once Lamar Jackson took over. He has the potential to make the roster as a gadget player.
Carolina is also looking for some depth in their offensive line as nearly half of their signings were offensive linemen.
