The Carolina Panthers have selected OT Ikem Ekwonu with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact:

Ekwonu impressed during his time at NC State. He's a ferocious and can slot in as a starter for the Panthers come Day 1. Analysts view him as a quick, flexible blocker who is also a great locker room presence. The selection comes after months of speculation regarding whether Carolina would select a quarterback or tackle. Now, we have our answer. Since the Panthers don't pick again until Day 3, it looks like they'll wait another year to draft a signal-caller.
