Report: Jack Plummer signing with Carolina Panthers as undrafted free agent

The Carolina Panthers are in bringing in some young quarterback depth behind second-year signal caller Bryce Young. The Panthers quickly moved to sign former Louisville quarterback Jack Plummer as an undrafted free agent, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Plummer played at a trio of colleges during his six-year career, spending four seasons at Purdue before playing in 2022 at Cal and finishing his career at Louisville in 2023. With Plummer as the starting quarterback, the Cardinals went 10-4 in 2023.

Plummer earned third team All-ACC honors for his play in 2023.

In 2023, Plummer completed 64.8% of his passes for 3204 yards and 21 touchdowns to 12 interceptions.

One of Plummer’s main weapons in 2023 got picked in the 6th round

Louisville running back Jawhar Jordan has been selected by the Houston Texans in the sixth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, taken with the No. 205 overall pick.

Jordan spent five years in college and after a quiet first three seasons, he really began to break out in 2022.

By the time he was a fifth-year player in 2023, Jordan was producing excellent numbers. He finished his season with 1,128 yards and 13 touchdowns rushing, while also racking up 21 catches for 246 yards and a touchdown.

That type of pass-catching ability, which he really debuted his last two seasons, will undoubtedly win him some favor at the next level.

Prior to enrolling at Syracuse, where he spent two years before transferring to Louisville, Jawhar Jordan was a three-star prospect and the No. 733 overall recruit in the 2018 recruiting class, according to the On3 Industry Rankings.

He also checked in as the No. 58 running back in the class and the No. 11 overall player from the state of Arizona, hailing from Chandler (AZ) Hamilton.

What NFL Draft analysts are saying about Jawhar Jordan

Size is going to be the biggest knock on Jordan as he looks to translate things to the next level. He checks in at just 5 foot 9, 193 pounds.

Given his playing style, perhaps that size shouldn’t be overly concerning. Still, Jordan’s not a back you’re lining up and running into the line of scrimmage 20 or more times per game.

Writes NFL Network analyst Lance Zierlein in evaluating Jawhar Jordan:

“Small running back with thin lower half who plays much tougher than his size would indicate. Unlike most smaller backs, Jordan isn’t sudden or explosive. He can be a step slow through the line of scrimmage and isn’t going to be much of an ‘added yardage back’ with power or wiggle.

“However, Jordan runs with good vision and great processing, making smart cuts and taking the most efficient routes he can. He can compete for third-down reps and has above-average talent as a kick returner. The lack of size will hurt his draft slotting, but he has a shot when he gets into a camp.”
