The Carolina Panthers selected quarterback Matt Corral with the 94th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. The Ole Miss product brings fiery competitiveness and leadership, not to mention plenty of confidence. Corral started for the Rebels the past two seasons after rotating at quarterback in 2019.

The pick originally belonged to the New England Patriots, but the Panthers elected to trade their No. 137 pick and a 2023 third-rounder to draft their quarterback of the future. (via Field Yates)

In 2020, Corral led the FBS with 384.3 total yards of offense per game. He also ranked seventh in the country with 29 touchdown passes. Corral only improved in 2021. He threw for 3,349 yards while completing 67.9% of his passes. He also put up a 4-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his fourth year in Oxford. His performance garnered second-team All-SEC honors and a seventh-place finish in the Heisman Trophy voting.

There are some questions regarding Corral's NFL readiness, though. He played in a quarterback-friendly scheme at Ole Miss that didn't require him to make more than one or two reads per dropback. And Corral threw five interceptions against LSU and six against Arkansas in 2020. But he cut the picks down to just five all season in 2021.

Corral can do damage with his arm and his legs. With his slighter frame, he'll have to be more conscious when he runs with the ball at the next level. But no prospect in this draft wants to win more than Corral does, as evidenced by his playing in Ole Miss's bowl game last season. It was a decision that unfortunately ended in a high ankle sprain that prevented him from showing off his arm at Ole Miss's pro day. But it shows what kind of competitor Panthers got in Matt Corral with the 94th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
