Carolina Panthers Sign Third-Round Pick CB Daryl Worley

The Carolina Panthers first rookie minicamp is approaching quickly and the team has been able to agree to a contract with their third draft pick in two days with cornerback Daryl Worley signing Tuesday.

The Carolina Panthers are than halfway done signing their rookie class after agreeing to terms with James Bradberry and Beau Sandland Monday and Daryl Worley on Tuesday, the team announced.

Worley, who played for West Virginia, was the team's third round pick in the NFL Draft and was the second cornerback selected. He is a big cornerback standing 6'2" and 198 pounds and should compete for the starting job opposite Bene Benwikere.

He played in 33 games over his three seasons for the Mountaineers and had a breakout season in his final season with 49 total tackles, two sacks and six interceptions.

According to Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson, Worley's deal is worth $3.237 million with a signing bonus of $782,896.

The Panthers will now turn their focus to getting their first-round pick, Vernon Butler, and their fifth-round pick, Zack Sanchez, under contract.
