Panthers selected Stanford RB Tyler Gaffney with the No. 204 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Gaffney (5-foot-11 1/2, 220) spent one season as the Cardinal's feature runner, rushing 330 times for 1,709 yards (5.18 YPC) and 21 scores as a senior. He managed 32 career catches. Although Gaffney ran 4.49 at the Combine, his underwhelming 9-foot-8 broad jump is more indicative of his explosiveness. He is a sluggish grinder in the Jackie Battle mold, lacks lateral agility, and only gets what's blocked. Gaffney projects as a No. 2 or 3 back in the pros, and may have to demonstrate special teams value to forge a long career. He's not going to push Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams or Kenjon Barner.
