Carolina Panthers Hold Private Workout with Cornerback Daryl Worley

The Carolina Panthers continue to look for depth in the secondary and will be working out West Virginia's Daryl Worley.

The cornerback position is one that the Carolina Panthers have dedicated a great deal of attention to prior to the NFL Draft and Daryl Worley can be added to that list, according to Aaron Wilson.

Worley decided to declare for the NFL Draft after his junior year, a season that included six interceptions and 12 passes defended. 

At 6'1" and 201 pounds, he has great size for a cornerback and possibly even play free safety at the NFL. These are two positions that the Panthers could use depth at and he could be a target for the team in Day 3 of the Draft.

As Rob Rang notes in his scouting report, Worley has off-the-field issues that includes charges of assault against a woman in 2014 and was suspended two games that season. The Panthers have tend to stay away from players with these types of issues since Greg Hardy. Worley will certainly need to prove to the organization that this is something that is in the past.

The former Mountaineer cornerback has the potential to develop into a starter at the NFL level however it may take a season or two of development for him to reach that level. He could be an excellent fit for this defense as long as the character concerns can be addressed.
