The Panthers help out their need at tight end by drafting Seidman. A productive player in college, Seidman is a very polished receiver and should be able to contribute right away with his pass-catching skills.
Seidman is not the most overpowering blocker, a attribute the Panthers would like to see developed. Seidman is an interesting pick considering the team's interest in some of the other tight end prospects. Overall, this is a solid pick and addresses an important need.
