Christian McCaffrey, Leonard Fournette 'both fit' our offense — Panthers GM

Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett looks cool and confident in warm-ups as the Seahawks take on the Cardinals at Century Link Field on Dec. 24 2016. Later in the game he broke his leg to end his season

That leaves one hole open, the ability to run the ball, and the Panthers have their eye on someone new. At Stanford, McCaffrey served as a dual-threat back, averaging 2,288.5 yards from scrimmage in each of the past two seasons. "McCaffrey, you're going to throw the ball to him a little bit more". In 2016 McCaffrey didn't have the same season, but it was still extremely productive. Some experts think he has an outside shot at going in the top 10, though that seem unlikely.

Through their scouting process the team disproved the popular (and false) myth that McCaffrey can't be an every-down back in the NFL.

"The last two years he's rushed the ball for 650 and he's caught another 90 balls", he said. McCaffrey was a work horse at Stanford nearly to a fault. However, Gettleman considers this class an equal if not superior match to last year's.

When it comes to McCaffrey, the biggest issue with him is his size, but scouts still see him as a first-round talent in this year's National Football League draft.

Fournette, considered by many to be a top-10 pick and best running back available, scored an 11 out of possible 50, according to The Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn. Fournette was the Heisman front runner in 2015 until him, and LSU feel off a cliff.

"I can't just say, 'Oh, we got to have the best prune-eater in America, '" Gettleman said. "There are 16 games you got to play them somehow, someway, somewhere".

That said, McCaffrey's number one attribute is his pure athleticism, which is on full display in this video. Finally McCaffrey was white, and a running back, and several times in his college career it was insinuated that he was looked at differently because of that. Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman is certainly of the latter group. He also went on to state that "both running backs would work well within the system".

Take an abbreviated version of it here, and tell us how you did below. McCaffrey would give the Panthers and Cam more than Fournette and it may be a little gamble, but it's worth it.
