http://budurl.com/CoolestSiteEver - The Carolina Panthers traded up to the 89th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and selected Appalachian State QB, Armanti Edwards.

With the selection of Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen and incumbent starter Matt Moore already on the roster, Edwards will not be a quarterback on the Panthers. He will most likely take snaps in the Wildcat formation, but he is expected to be converted to a wide receiver in the NFL.

Panthers General Manager Marty Hurney said, "Armanti is a projection, but the versatility he brings - he is an athlete, a football player and plays with intensity and toughness."

Edwards was a four-year starter at Appalachian State and led his team to two national titles at the Football Championship Subdivision level as a QB. He is undersized at 5-11, 187 lbs, but he has blazing 4.2 speed. He has had some durability issues in the past and will need to bulk up to play in the NFL.

Hurney confirmed that he will be primarily a WR in Carolina. Edwards will need some time to learn how to run routes and to control his speed to give defenders different looks as he runs his routes. The Panthers plan to give him that time to learn. - http://budurl.com/CoolestSiteEver
