3. Andrew Raym - C, Oklahoma

The Panthers need a center and Andrew Raym has three years of starting experience for an offense that perennially ranks among the best in college football. He earned three straight All-Big 12 honors and was once the top-rated high school player in the state of Oklahoma, so he brings pedigree, experience and tenacity to the position.

I was surprised that Raym wasn't drafted and he perfectly fits a position of need in Carolina. At 6'3", 315 LBs with a natural understanding of leverage, he knows how to use his football IQ to mitigate his relatively shorter arms and subpar athleticism.

Bryce Young was sacked 62 times in 2023, the second-most of any QB in the NFL. Raym is not the greatest center prospect by any stretch of the imagination, but it's not often you find an anchor with this much experience as an undrafted free agent.

Austin Corbett is slated to start at center for Carolina. With respect to the veteran lineman, he's better suited at guard and the Panthers need a long-term option.

I don't think Raym will compete for the starting gig immediately, though the organization should invest in his development to see if he can bring the stability to the line that he did for the Sooners.
