The Carolina third-round rookie Rashaan Gaulden has been reportedly working out this offseason with elite cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey, A.J. Bouye, and Casey Hayward. The three veterans were reportedly impressed enough that Jalen Ramsey went as far to post on Instagram that the rookie should be in contention for the defensive rookie of the year. (usatoday.com)
Fantasy Football IDP owners will want to take note of the statement and consider keeping tabs on the rookie. It is currently unclear the role he'll have to start the season, but the off-season reports are positive enough that Gaulden should be on the radar of owners looking for additional assets to add. If he manages to win a starting role as one of the main safeties there will be the potential to make an IDP impact in 2018.
