James Washington, our 100th ranked wide receiver, is best suited to
be a primary backup. We project he will end up with the Carolina Panthers because they
could use a player of this quality after losing Keith Kirkwood for an extended period of time. The Panthers
currently have 6 healthy wide receivers, and 3 are
rated better than Washington: (Laviska Shenault, Ihmir Smith Marsette, and Terrace Marshall).
The Panthers currently have no
wide receivers under contract beyond the 2026 season,
so Washington might get longer than a one year deal with the team.
