WVU Football WR Devin Carter

A recent report may have scared NFL teams away from drafting WVU wide receiver Devin Carter, but he lands with an NFL team nonetheless. Carter signed with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent, according to several reports.

On April 10, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported a source told him that Carter had a core muscle procedure and will rehab the next 4-6 weeks.

According to Schefter’s report, Carter should be ready for rookie mini-camp.
