TheCarolina Panthersown seven picks in the 2024 NFL draft, but they don't have one in the first round. The Panthers traded that pick before last year's draft in a package to the Chicago Bears in exchange for the 2023 No. 1 pick, which Carolina used on quarterback Bryce Young.

It didn't work out as the Panthers had hoped. Young struggled and the Panthers finished with the worst record in the league at 2-15. That means the Bears will pick first and are expected to take USC quarterbackCaleb Williams.

The 2024 NFL draft will take place at Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza in Detroit from April 25 through April 27. Round 1 will begin April 25 at 8 p.m. ET, while Rounds 2 and 3 are on April 26 starting at 7 p.m. ET. Rounds 4 through 7 begin at noon ET on April 27. The draft will be broadcast on ESPN, ABC, ESPN+ and the ESPN App. There are 257 total picks in the draft.

Here's the full list of the Panthers' draft picks by round, along with a look at their top roster needs headed into the 2024 season.

Top three needs:OLB, WR, C. The Panthers signed free agent OLB Jadeveon Clowney, but he is 31 and not an every-down player or long-term solution to replace Pro Bowler Brian Burns, who was traded to the Giants. Neither are D.J. Wonnum and K'Lavon Chaisson, who were signed in free agency but are still in prove-it mode.

Carolina added former Steelers WR Diontae Johnson in a trade, but after him and Adam Thielen, there's not much. So with a deep class of WRs, using one of two second-round picks on a pass-catcher feels like a must. And Austin Corbett, who spent most of his NFL career at guard, is penciled in as the starting center, so the Panthers need to find a young player to develop behind him. -- David Newton
