The Panthers selected South Carolina WR Shi Smith in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Smith was a 4-year starter for the Gamecocks but was stuck behind guys like Deebo Samuel, Hayden Hurst and Bryan Edwards for his first 3 seasons. He finally emerged as the team’s lead receiver in 2020, snagging a career-high 57 balls for 533 yards and 4 scores. Smith has 4.4 speed and plenty of quickness. But he goes just 5’10, 186 pounds and struggles with contact. He projects as a slot receiver in the NFL without much fantasy upside.
