The Carolina Panthers continue to add to their 90-man roster after the 2024 NFL Draft as they signed multiple undrafted free agents. Those undrafted free agents, along with the rookies that the Panthers drafted will get a chance to showcase their skills at the team’s rookie minicamp.

However, those aren’t the only two groups of players that will be in attendance at Carolina’s rookie minicamp. There will also be some undrafted prospects looking to obtain a UDFA deal.

One of those players is former Jacksonville State Gamecocks wide receiver Perry Carter, who was invited to Carolina’s rookie camp. The Panthers were reportedly in attendance at Carter’s pro day in March.

The 5-foot-8 wide receiver had an excellent final year at Jacksonville St., where he was named 2023 Honorable Mention All-Conference USA Trem. Carter posted 38 receptions for 672 yards and four touchdowns.

In the Gamecocks’ bowl game against the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns, the 5-foot-8 pass catcher had four receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown. Carter has an uphill climb to make Carolina’s 90-man roster out of rookie camp.

However, the former Jacksonville State standout has kickoff return specialist skills, which could give him the upperhand over the competition. It will be interesting to see Carter gets the call to stay with the Panthers as he begins his NFL journey.
