The Panthers got their first two draft picks under contract Tuesday, signing sixth-round WR David Gettis and seventh-round CB R.J. Stanford.
Both Gettis and Stanford are going to have to work to make the 53-man roster, but both had moments in OTAs when they stood out.
(Update: 10:16 p.m.) The Panthers are expected to announce deals Wednesday with sixth-round DE Greg Hardy and seventh-round CB Robert McClain, per league sources. That would give them 40 percent of their 10-man draft class taken care of before the end of OTAs. That's well ahead of normal pace, as they tend to get them done closer to training camp.
