While the starting cornerbacks for the Carolina Panthers appears set for this upcoming season with Josh Norman, Bene Benwikere and Brandon Boykin, there is some questions past 2016 with two of them playing on one-year contracts (Norman, Boykin).
It would make sense than the Panthers look at some of the cornerbacks in this upcoming NFL Draft class and according to Rand Getlin of the NFL Network, the team worked out Harlan Miller.
Miller was a three-year starter for Southeastern Louisana and was named to the third-team FCS All-American in 2014 and second-team All-American in 2015. He showed an ability in making game changing plays, finishing with 11 career interceptions.
Among cornerbacks, Scout ranks Miller as the seventh best cornerback and should be in consideration in the mid-rounds of the upcoming NFL Draft. However, he didn't perform as well at the NFL Combine but did improve in a number of workouts at his Pro Day.
|Workout||NFL Combine||Pro Day|
|40-yard Dash||4.65 seconds||4.57 seconds|
|Vertical Jump||35.5 inches||32 inches|
|Broad Jump||118 inches||117 inches|
|3-Cone Drill||7.44 seconds||7.1 seconds|

A player like Miller would be the perfect addition to the Panthers' secondary as he has the height (6'0") that this team covets at the cornerback position. He also wouldn't be forced into the starting lineup and can use his rookie season to develop and see an expanded role possibly as early as 2017.
