The NFL has finalized the 2021 NFL Draft order, announcing all 259 selections on Friday.
Carolina currently has eight picks, including three in the sixth round.
Two of those picks (222 and 226) are compensatory. Comp picks are awarded on a secret and complicated formula based on net losses in unrestricted free agency. The losses of offensive tackle Daryl Williams and defensive tackle Vernon Butler in 2020 created the extra picks, since other signings last year negated other losses.
The Panthers are without their seventh-round pick this year as it belongs to Buffalo from the 2018 trade for offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse.
The 2021 NFL Draft begins on Thursday, April 29 from Cleveland, Ohio.
